ask: Early period

By Anonymous

my period is pretty irregular but my last one ended two weeks ago and today it looks like a start of a new cycle (relatively less flow but usual cramping and stuff). I'm still a virgin but I've had outercourse before.

Hi saminorah,

Not all cycles will be the same. If you got one on 5/22 and then on 6/13, that pretty close.  Sometimes ovarian cysts and many other conditions can cause changes to a woman's cycle.

Best,

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  In most cases, having an irregular period can be benign and it's usually caused by an underlying hormonal imbalance that is easily treated with birth control pills.  But your doctor will have to determine which treatment will be best for you.  Depending also on your medical history.  

Best,

Daisy
