Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Not for one episode: 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. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Not uncommon: to occasionally have an irregular period. There are lots of things that can cause this, including emotional or physical stress, but it often happens for no apparent reason. It may take a month or so for your cycles to normalize again. If you have had unprotected sex, then you should be checked for sexually transmitted disease (STD) which can cause menstrual irregularity. Otherwise, don't worry ...Read more

Hmmm....: Many women have occasional variation of their mucus discharge, some spotting between periods, a heavier period, a lighter period, a longer or shorter period, or even a missed period. Having one or two of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean there is a medical problem, but a visit to one’s primary care or Ob-Gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. ...Read more

This month a day before my period was due I started spotting brownish red and pink for five days with very little blood on my pad all when I wiped on the tissue my breasts are sore and im tired and hungry all the time with dry chap lips?

Doctor can evaluate: There are many reasons to be tired, quite a few reasons to be hungry, and several reasons for sore breasts. A primary care doctor can evaluate to see what might be happening. There could be a hormonal problem, and the doctor can do a urine pregnancy test to rule that out. Other tests, such as blood tests, can help look for causes of hunger and fatigue. ...Read more

I started spotting for 2days about 2 weeks ago&directly after came my period it went from dark brown to bright red. What could this mean?

Timing is everything: Menstrual cycles can often "stutter" and may change color (dark brown is old blood and bright red is fresh blood). However if you ever bleed "in-between" periods, this is always concerning and something you need to see your doctor about. ...Read more

It depends on the: rest of your recent menstruation history. If you have had irregular bleeding in the past or recently stopped hormone or contraception pills, or implants, then that would explain why your periods are changing. If you have had nothing to alter your periods, then other things like nutrition, stress, weight change, exercise, weather, mood can also play a role. I would wait a week to see change. ...Read more

Irregular spotting: Irregular period could be caused by multiple factors including adolescence, stress, diet changes, medications and change in activity or even sleep pattern. If you have been sexually active take a pregnancy test. If negative but spotting persists repeat the test in a week. See your doctor if the spotting continues and negative pregnancy test.

HCG ws 6 at 4th wk& dropped to 3.5 2 day later! I immediately started spotting brown & red & a day of very light red flow, nw just spot. Is it period?

Just spotting: The levels you are giving me are not compatible with pregnancy. This was just your period. Keep a log of your cycle so you know when you are most likely to be ovulating and can try or avoid getting pregnant. Make sure your thyroid is well controlled as this can cause irregularities with your cycle. ...Read more

Several causes: It is not uncommon for women to have variations in their menses. Weight loss, stress, travel, illness, change in birth control, new medications, pelvic infections, and pregnancy can all cause changes in the menses. I suggest doing a home pregnancy test it pregnancy is a possibility. If you have no changes in weight, health,meds, lifestyle, you could wait another month to see if it regulates again. ...Read more
