Mean Period Came
What does it mean when your period came early & lasted only for 2 days? I'm still a virgin & it's really unusual.
Not to worry: Periods can naturally change up or down 2-3 days and still be normal. An evaluation may be needed if intervals between your period get very short (less than 24 days) or very long (greater than 42 days). Medical conditions may be responsible for this, but not in the case of only 2 days. Do not worry. ...Read more

Depends: Are you saying that your period came for a few hours and then disappeared for another month until your next period? Insufficient Progesterone or estrogen is likely the cause of that.

Irregularities in our cycles most commonly occur when estrogen and Progesterone are not in the right ratios. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My period came on the 38th day last month... Does it mean it will come on the 38th day this month too?
Maybe. Maybe not.: Since our calendar months have no more than 31 days, the "38th" day must mean a 38-day-long menstrual cycle. The length of one cycle predicts the length of the next cycle ONLY if cycles are regular, but not if cycles are irregular. Thus, one would need more information before guessing how long this current cycle might be. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have take planb 3 times through out my life & the first 2 times i took it my period came next day this time it never did. does it mean it didnt work?
Possibly: No birth control is 100 %, I would suggest you take a pregnancy test now and then two weeks after your regular scheduled period. Please don't use planb as method of birth control. Contraception through an IUD or Implantable device like Nexplanon and condoms for protection from STD are the best method of preventing pregnancy. ...Read more

Sounds like: coincidence, and that your period was coming, regardless of when you did other things. You might get an OTC pregnancy test, but usually menstruation means you're not pregnant (NOT always). Some people think sex can speed up the onset of menstruation, but I don't think that's a big deal in this case. If you have medical concerns after sex, see your doctor. ...Read more
