Period 10 days early! VERY strange (and I'm not worried I'm pregnant either!)

My cycle has always been spot-on 28 days. Maybe once a year, it'll come a day early/late. It's pretty good like that!

But it this time came over 10 days early (over the weekend) which is REALLY strange and unusual for me. I spotted for 2 days and then bam! I've had lots of large clots too (sorry about the TMI!!)

Last week, before I started spotting, I was getting hot flashes every day. My face and head would get so hot, I actually felt ill.

I'm only 30, so I'm not really sure what's going on. Could my hormones be majorly out of whack?? (I had a baby 12 months ago.)

Hello Anonymous,

You are not pregnant if you are having a normal period.

Hello, I just turned 35 and my tubes have been tied for 9yrs. I do have unprotected sex with my fiance, however my period came 10 days early and this has never happened since I have been on my period. In the past I was told my uterus is tilted. What are your thoughts?

Hello Anon

A tilted uterus (I am the proud owner of one myself!) should not affect the menstrual cycle.

At 25, your periods may be becoming a little irregular due to early peri-menopause but a pregnancy test can rule out pregnancy. Bear in mind your risk is very low.

You may be early this month simply due to a change in body chemistry.

Best,
Susan

Hello Anonymous,

Having a period would show that you are not pregnant. I really don't know why your recent period was 12 days early.

Are you taking any medication to help you become pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

The first question I need to ask is how old are you?

Changes in the menstrual cycle are the first sign of early perimenopause. Women in their 50s, some as early as late 40s, start having fluctuations in estrogen levels.

Hi, I am 15 and my period arrives 10 days earlier than last month. Should I be worried ? I didn't have sex I only had oral and his hands were clean and so were mine. There is no way I can be pregnant right?

Hello Anonymous,

There is no way you could be pregnant. Sometimes, when you first start getting a period, it can be irregular. Your body is adjusting to the surge of hormones associated with adolescents. In time, your period should become regular.
