Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community!

Yes, it is very possible that it could be your period. Sometimes spotting can occur during menstrual cycles where there is very little blood and it may be discolored.

From what you've explained, it sounds like your period is very irregular and doesn't stick to a 28 day cycle. Has your period always been like this or did you just recently start experiencing that?

There are several things that can cause irregular periods including:

  • stress
  • travel
  • sickness
  • birth control
  • excessive exercise
  • changes in diet
  • being underweight or overweight
  • change in schedules

Also, are you on a form of birth control? Sometimes that can cause changes in your menstrual cycle.

I hope this helped! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
