Period came a week early this could this mean anything?

Period came a week early this could this mean anything?

Period timing: Generally menstrual interval (days between each bleed) are considered 'normal' if 21-35days. A period that starts a week earlier than usual is usually nothing to be concerned about. Make sure to take a pregnancy test. If it's neg, mark on a calendar which days you bleed and follow your cycle for 2-3 cycles. If it straightens out, then it's a non issue. If not, show your doc the calendar ...Read more

If your period came early one month...Will it be late the next month?

If your period came early one month...Will it be late the next month?

Not necessarily: Coming early one month does not mean it will come late the next month. Most women have regular periods and can tell when their period should arrive, however their are many who also have irregular cycles, often varying by days. See your ob/gyn if need be, as birth control pills can often regulate your cycle if need be. Best wishes. ...Read more

Period came Dec.6, 2015 for 5 days. Returned Dec. 20, 2015. Cycle of 28-31days. When can I expect my next period?

Period came Dec.6, 2015 for 5 days. Returned Dec. 20, 2015. Cycle of 28-31days. When can I expect my next period?

Hard to guess: If there was a true menstrual period Dec. 20, then 28-31 days after that would be the next expected start of a period. However, if the "period" Dec. 20 was actually spotting around ovulation time, then the next period would come about 14 days after Dec. 20. One will just have to wait and see. Also, if one just got pregnant, the next period will be 10-11 months from now. ...Read more

What does it mean when your period came early & lasted only for 2 days? I'm still a virgin & it's really unusual.

What does it mean when your period came early & lasted only for 2 days? I'm still a virgin & it's really unusual.

Not to worry: Periods can naturally change up or down 2-3 days and still be normal. An evaluation may be needed if intervals between your period get very short (less than 24 days) or very long (greater than 42 days). Medical conditions may be responsible for this, but not in the case of only 2 days. Do not worry. ...Read more

Period came a few days late this month and only lasted 4 days instead of the usual 6 days. Should I be concerned about this?

Period came a few days late this month and only lasted 4 days instead of the usual 6 days. Should I be concerned about this?

Not necessarily: As long as the timing between periods is similar and not off in time by less than a week, I doubt there is a problem. My guess is that you normally has heavy menstrual periods and have been blessed with a shorter and perhaps lighter one this time! If you have more questions, please discuss with your OB if choice ...Read more

My period came twice this month?

Once a year?: A woman with cycles shorter than 29 days (shorter than 1 month) will likely have 1 ovulation per month during the year, but have 2 ovulations during one month of the year (since she has about 13 cycles a year). That means she is likely to have 2 menstrual periods during one of the 12 months of each year, because she has 13 periods a year. ...Read more

Schedule a visit. ...Read more

It happens sometimes: Many women have occasional early or late period, 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

Early ovulation: If your periods are regular, then they start about 14 days after ovulation. So if your period started early, then it likely just means you ovulated early.
