Abnormal periods: We would want to rule out a miscarriage at the time of the first abnormal period. When did you do the pregnancy test? If it was after the first period by many days and it was a miscarriage, the HCG levels might have declined to detectable levels. Consult with your GYN if the periods remain abnormal.

My period is a week early and was heavy to begin with, however what concerns me is that is has lasted longer than my other periods and my breasts hurt, is this an early stage of pregnancy?

My period is a week early and was heavy to begin with, however what concerns me is that is has lasted longer than my other periods and my breasts hurt, is this an early stage of pregnancy?

Probably not, but...: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. Urine tests are very accurate.

My period came two weeks early, heavier than usual, with a fair amount of small clots. I'm on no contraceptive; what could be the cause?

My period came two weeks early, heavier than usual, with a fair amount of small clots. I'm on no contraceptive; what could be the cause?

Early "period": Depending on how regular your cycles have been, heavy bleeding earlier than expected can be secondary to early miscarriage, "fibroid (benign) tumors" and potentially pregnancy outside the uterus (ectopic). Obtain a serum (quantitative) HCG test and if positive see your healthcare provider immediately. If negative, schedule an exam with your provider for an ultrasound exam and other testing.

No: Implantation bleeding is generally very light. It's more likely that the bleeding is related to hormonal changes. If it doesn't take care of itself, better see your doctor.

Well, it sounds: Like you ovulated irregularly, not uncommon but can lead to an irregular bleeding episode that may resolve or may need contraceptive pill. If there is any question of a pregnancy I would do pregnancy test to make sure that's not it, sounds low probability for now but a matter of time with unprotected intercourse. Gd luc.
