Yes, : Yes, that is abnormal. You need to be seen and be tested. It may be that your period is abnormal because your hormones are fluctuating, but you should be screened for infection, and also please be sure that your pap smear is up to date. If you develop any pain, fever, or vomiting then please be seen as an emergency.
