23 year old virgin normal regular periods this month 9 days early very light period. What could be the cause? Is something wrong?

Likely normal: As long as no sex, then pregnancy is not the cause! But people define being a virgin differently, so any contact with semen increases risk.

Meds and exercise can cause changes in periods too. ...Read more
