Hi my period came late this month.. it usually comes from 26 to 28 days. last month it came 2/15 so 3/13 would make it 26 days.. it didnt come until 3/17 which is 30 days. before it came i had a slight pain in my lower right abdomen which i have never experienced before. now my period usually lasts 6 days but today 3/21 i woke up and i didnt have any bleeding but after i took a shower i had a small amount of bleeding which is wierd and the pain in my abdomen came back. could i be pregnant or is this something that just happens

Just remember, if the lower right pain continues or gets worse, call your doctor, especially if you have any of the above mentioned symptoms.

Hi Anonymous,
Most women experience some variability in their menstrual cycles during the course of the reproductive years. Cycles can vary from one month to another.
Your current period arrived 2 days later than your normal range and blood flow lasted 1 day less than your normal. Spotting immediately following menstrual flow is not abnormal.
Since you have just had a period, it is not very likely that you could be pregnant.
Continue to access the symptom of lower right abdominal pain. If you should continue to have the pain along with nausea, vomiting and elevated temperature, contact your doctor. The complaint of lower right abdominal pain raises the question of appendicitis.
