i had my period on the 28th september till 3rd october (6 days) a week later on the 10th october i had spotting for 2 days till sunday 12th and then my next period was due on the 26th october and im just wondering because of the spotting should my period come as normal or will it be later? and will there be a period? as i am now 2 days late and not showing any signs of a period?

thanxs :) ive been to see my drs though and all she has done is took a water sample and sent it off to check for any water infections or kidney problems and it came back negative from all them and she told me to take a home pregnancy test which also came back negative :/

Hi Anonymous,

I really don't know. You could either wait and see what happens or call your physician.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community and thank you for coming to us with your questions.

Was the spotting dark brown in color, or red?

Since the menstrual cycle is regulated by a delicate hormonal imbalance, any factor that upsets the balance causes an irregularity.

Depending on your age, perimenopause could be the reason. Fluctuations in estrogen levels, which can begin as early as your late 40s, cause menstrual irregularities. Conversely, adolescents in the early years of menstruation will have irregular periods.

Anonymous, if you do not start your period by the end of the week, consider talking with your physician.
