Fin r he past three months my period has been different. For the first 2 months it was late and lasted about a week or a little bit longer. Then , the 3rd month it was early and heavier than normal. It, lasted about 9 days. I'm 42 yrs. Old. Been, pregnant , it was a miss carriage after the 3 weeks . not on any birth control and my boyfriend does not pull out. Wonderig, if I am pregnant? Plus, I have gained weight and mood is up and down emotional.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
The vaginal bleeding that occurs during pregnancy is very light that lasts a couple days. Since you are having longer periods, pregnancy is very unlikely. There are many different possible reasons of irregular periods. Some are more serious than others. The first thing I suggest you do is see a gynecologist and get a pap smear. I also recommend getting an ultrasound to check for any ovarian cysts, polyps and/or fibroids. Lastly, I suggest the gynecologist check your thyroid. Hormone imbalances at your age can by different thyroid conditions.
Below I have pasted a link with additional information about why irregular periods can occur.

I hope that helps.
