Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

This shift in dates could be due to stress, hormonal changes, etc. It doesn't necessarily mean anything is wrong, it may be just a very early period. Our hormones decide our menstrual cycle and if our hormones are thrown off, sometimes just due to a change in body chemistry, our periods can change.

There isn't much to do but wait till your next cycle and see what happens. You may find you go back to normal or if not, talk to your doctor.
