No other symptoms?: Occasionally some women ask why their periods have an orange hue or look pinkish-orange. Ob-gyn doctors often say that the hues of the blood color is not important, as long as the periods are normal in other ways. The color hues may be related things like the ph of the menstrual blood or to vaginal fluids/mucus mixed in with the menstrual blood. An ob-gyn can help, if other symptoms are present. ...Read more

Possible reasons...: An early menstrual period may be caused by changes in hormone levels, which can be due to anxiety, stress, overworking, intense exercise, fatigue, or excessive weight gain/loss. If pregnancy happens, implantation bleeding occurring 9-14 days after conception may happen, and sometimes may last long enough to mimic an early period. An ob-gyn doctor can check, if symptoms are worrisome or recurrent. ...Read more

When in doubt: Just check pregnancy test. And if you are still not bleeding normally and first pregnancy test was negative, check it again in 1 week. Monitor your symptoms to see if they will go away. If not, visit a GYN or family physician to make sure you do not have a bacterial or fungal infection.

Repeat in a week and if negative, and if your next period is abnormal, see your doc to find out why. Follow the instructions on the kit, and be sure it has not expired, too. Also, infections can occur, if you are at risk of pregnancy and even if you’re not. So get checked for those if your pg tes ...Read more
