I started my period 2-3 weeks early is that normal?

Not normal: It is not normal to begin your period that early. Without knowing if someone your age is using hormonal contraception, it is not possible to determine if this is just a medication side effect. If a pattern like this is repetitive, then seek the advice of your physician. If it is just a single occurrence, then it is unlikely to indicate a significant problem. ...Read more

Anovulatory cycle.: Teenagers and women in their forties (i.e. At the beginning and the end of the fertile years) are more likely to have anovulatory cycles (especially if their weight for height is too little or too much.). In those cycles, the ovaries never produce an egg and a hormonal imbalance results that leads to irregular bleeding as the endometrial lining sheds before it can mature. Wait, or take ocps. ...Read more

Mid cycle spotting: You can have mid cycle spotting at ovulation and there si always some variation in periods and it couldl be due to the fall in progesterone before period.

If not then schedule a visit to discuss changing brands or changing birth control methods. This is very common. Other than being annoying it is not dangerous. ...Read more

My period came two weeks early. 3 days of spotting followed by an addtl 6 of light bleeding. My period has never been this long. Could I be pregnant?

Take a test: Urine pregnancy test that you get at the drugstore are very safe and accurate. It doesn't sound like it, it sounds like you are having some irregular bleeding, but if you had unprotected intercourse, it's best to check and be sure. If you're not pregnant, the period is likely long due to fluctuations in your hormone levels. If it bothers you, you can always talk to doc about rx for birth control. ...Read more
