I hadn't a period in five weeks, but I had been spoting off in on, l started spoting and bleeding five days ago for three day, pms?

I hadn't a period in five weeks, but I had been spoting off in on, l started spoting and bleeding five days ago for three day, pms?

NOT "normal"!: I don't understand why you wouldn't go see an ob/gyn for a problem like this! If you've been sexually active and without protection, it could be an incomplete spontaneous abortion... And you could end up quite anemic, in addition to the severe cramping. As a psychiatrist, i'd be curious to know just what would you consider "good reason" to go see your doctor?! ...Read more

Is it normal to NOT have pre symptoms of period before it starts? Period is five days late & im not pms only very small tummy cramps. What's going on??

Could be: If you are 5 days late for your period and not having your usual symptoms, it could be a normal variation in cycle length or you could be pregnant. Check a pregnancy test to know for sure and, if it is negative and your period still hasn't started, repeat it in 3-5 days. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Two days ago gained 5 pounds overnight and only lost 2 of those pounds since. I expected to lose all of it the next day. What's going on here? Not pms

Many variables: Weight gain overnight is usually a sign of fluids shifting into "storage" compartments (tissue spaces) in the body. This can occur with extra salt intake in your diet congestive heart failure, end of menstrual cycle bloating, as well as poor kidney function.

I have irregular cycles I have one every 4 or 5 months no PMS symptoms but it last about 3 weeks heavy heavy heavy. What could that be?

Irregular periods: It probably is suggestive that you are not ovulating every month and that your endometrium eventually becomes so thick that the uterus must expel it giving a hard and heavy period.
