Don't worry but...: Menstrual cycles rarely come like clockwork; virtually all women have cycles where their period comes early or late; this can be related to stress or illness but sometimes just happens. Pg tests can be inaccurate so early, so you could be pregnant despite the negative test. If your period does not start in 5 days do another test.If you're not pregnant your period will come eventually! see comment:.

If a few weeks pass with no menses & you are not pregnant then see your Family Doc or Gynecologist. There could be issues like thyroid imbalances causing this problem...

Let me help: If the oozing is minor and have no redness and swelling that will be fine, it should get less with time, you could clean with hydrogen peroxide with no problems.Good luck, thank you.

Dr. Douglas Miller

No: Depending on what you eat and drink, your weight could easily fluctuate both up and down by as much as 4 pounds in 2 days. It is nothing to worry about, unless you keep adding that kind of weight for a longer period of time.
A 46-year-old member asked:

I haven't gotten to brush in 2 days. Could I have gotten cavities?

No, but........: Assuming you had no cavities already, not brushing for two days won't cause any new cavities. However, if you keep forgetting or don't bother to brush, repeated days without brushing (and flossing) will produce cavities over time.
