Menstrual Cycle Issues

Good day all,

So let me get right into it. My periods usually are about on average 30-33 days in length. I am 19 years old. Occasionally my period will be longer or shorter than others but not usually by more than 7 days. However last month (July) my period came after 43 long days of waiting and anxiousness, however it did not have the usual cramps that I will get. My period arrived on the 18th of July.It lasted longer than is normal for me and was rather heavy (it lasted about 7 days) usually my period will last from 5-6 days.

However here I am over a month later. 43 days to be exact my period is not where to be seen or felt. The odd thing is this cycle I had brown discharge on the 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th. of July (22 days after my period). There was very little darker red blood on the 10th alongside with slight cramps (which were extremely mild and lasted no more than 30 minutes). My cervical discharge has been wonky too. Shortly after the brown discharge passed I experienced tacky cervical fluid for 5 days and then began some wet discharge that I would notice when I woke up but didn't have very much coming out at all during the day. It was watery (but foggy, I am able to see threw it but it's kinda like cloudy). For the last three days I have only experienced this in the afternoon. I've woken up to nothing and then I feel some as I work coming out and then it eventually dries up and there's nothing else that comes out during the day. Finally the last thing is that occasionally before my period begins I get these weird kinda butterfly or cramps (but there's no pain) it's extremely hard to explain. I usually get them about a week or so before my period. They are very brief lasting only about 15 minutes. For the last 2 weeks I have been experiencing acne similar to the type I get before my period. I am sexually active but only engage in fingering and such with my boyfriend. He fingered me on the 28th of July but no other time before the brown bleeding.

My question is does anyone have any suggestions as to what exactly is happening? Should I consider the 4 days of brown bleeding my period? Any ideas as to why my body has been going out of whack or if pregnancy is possible here. Thank you for your time.

Hi LucasBarbosa6

If you are having unprotected sex, then there is always a risk of pregnancy.

If you are not, you can probably consider the days of brown bleeding a period, albeit a very light one. Your cycle sounds irregular this month. Give it a couple of months to see if you go back to normal and if not, talk to your doctor about checking your hormones for an imbalance.
