If you are concerned you can go to get a home pregnancy test. Plus I would highly advise using protection for STD's (condoms) and birth control (pill, IUD, implant) to prevent unplanned pregnancy. ...Read more

Periods change for a given individual for many reasons--stress, environmental changes, and, even mild weight changes. Hope this helps. ...Read more
