Periods: Women may have irregular or early periods for a lot of reasons, from medical issues to stress to pregnancy. If the bleeding is very heavy you might consider going to the ER. Otherwise, since you don't have any pain, take a home pregnancy test. If that is negative, you might consider lust waiting a month to see if things normalize. If not I would recommend seeing your Family Doctor or Gynecologist. ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor.
