No one is perfect: and neither are a woman's menstrual cycles. Occasional spotting between periods, early bleeding before expected period and late periods are quite common. Unless this happens repeatedly, you suspect pregnancy or if you have other symptoms like pelvic pain or vaginal discharge or itching, you shouldn't worry. Dr. Anne

Yes : Especially when diabetes isn't in good control menstrual periods can be irregular. If periods remain irregular when diabetes is in good control another cause of irregular periods should be sought.

Depends on hormones : I think that would depend on the type of hormone you are talking about and the scan you had. If you didnt get instructions then check with your doctor first. Did you have a thyroid scan? Was it a bone scan or a density scan?

Check with the doc: Many blood pressure medications take longer than a week to have their full effect. Check with your doctor as you may need a higher dose or another medication. Hbp is damaging over the long term most of the time and not over a few days so check with your doctor.
