Could be many things: A few things could be at work here. First, you're young and still prone to having random irregular periods that can include either longer than normal or heavier than normal. Also, if you are on any hormonal birth control, this can cause this kind of cycle to happen once in awhile while you adjust to the hormones. If you bleed more than 3 weeks, see your doc for a drug to stop the bleeding. ...Read more
My period is normally 5-7 days long. After trying to get pregnant w/my husband, my period this month was only 2 days long but still heavy. Why?

It is unlikely that this occurs for you 2-5 days before your period, but that is just a guess. ...Read more

Do hpt if you miss: your period. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...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.
