So, I should be in my period right now. It started a couple days early and was spotting somewhat, then it got a little heavy, then spotted, and heavy again. Ive been stressing a lot lately, doing a lot of exercising, drinking a lot of caffeine. I dont know if these could be a cause of it.. its been going on for 4 days now. Any suggestions? Much appreciated!

Hi kristin,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Stress can definitely cause changes to a woman's ovulation and menstruation cycle. You might want to continue monitoring it and if it does continue it's best to see your doctor. Hope this was helpful?
