Hello Gnzlz,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for reaching out to us with your concerns about the changes in your menstrual cycle and menstrual flow.

Do you have a gynecologist? When was your last appointment? If you have not seen a gynecologist since the changes started, I suggest you call to schedule an appointment. That is the best option to finding out what is going on.

The menstrual cycle is regulated by a precise balance of hormones. Any upset in one or more of these hormones will cause changes in the menstrual cycle.

Gnzlz, before calling for an appointment, take a home pregnancy test. Test tomorrow morning. Use the urine when you first wake up and use the bathroom. That way, you will have tested and have results before you call.
