What your normal?: When patients have abnormal periods i always want to know what their normal pattern is. If most periods are normal then one abnormal (late, early, short, long) this is not usually a cause for concern. The cycles tend to regulate and get back to normal quickly. There are many options for cycle control. Birth control works really well and prevents unplanned pregnancy.
