I am a 30 year old who has always had regular periods. Last month (January), my period was 4 days late, very light, and lasted a few extra days. It was weird, but I figured it was related to some stressful things I was dealing with. My next period is due on February 20, but yesterday, I had some bleeding after going to the bathroom. Today, I am still having some brown discharge. I don't feel like I'm getting my period (I usually have sore breasts and cramps a few days before hand, but am not experiencing any of these normal symptoms). Is it normal to experience early bleeding every once in a while? What could cause this?
NOTE: I am not sexually active, so no chance of pregnancy. Am not taking any hormone / birth control pills, either.
I tend to really worry about health issues, so I'm not sure if I'm blowing this out of proportion. Either way, my body is acting differently and it's really stressing me out!
