In brief: No other symptoms?

If there are no ill symptoms, it is fine for a woman's period to be off schedule, longer, or shorter, once in a while.
Life is not exact. If there are recurring symptoms or worrisome symptoms (such as increased pain or signs of infection), a woman can see her primary care doctor or an ob-gyn doctor for an evaluation.
