Do I have my period or am I spotting

So the first 2 days of my period was very heavy then the next 2 light and a little brown. Today it's back to being really heavy. Is this normal?

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. Your menstrual cycle differs from month to month and can have irregularities in them...this is all common.

Are you concerned about possible pregnancy? Do you think this is possibly a miscarriage? If so, you should seek assistance from your doctor.

If you are not concerned about pregnancy, the heavy-light flow of your cycle is not that uncommon. Is there a specific answer to why this occurs? Not really. It just seems to occur from time to time. Each and every woman is different.

I hope this information helps, Anonymous. If you have additional questions, please let us know.
