My monthly cycles are always normal. Never early but maybe a day late. I am on a 25 day cycle and bleed for 3 days. My boyfriend and I have been TTC for almost a year now. We have unprotected sex often. We had sex during my cycle last month. This month I started bleeding 6 days early (on a Sunday) and I am still bleeding (Friday) The first 3 days it was on and off bleeding the 4th day was extremely heavy now it is like a normal period. My actual period is due tomorrow (Saturday) All of which is not normal for me. I do not know what is going on and I am starting to get scared especially since I had an ectopic pregnancy before. Could my period just be abnormal this month or is there a chance of pregnancy, another ectopic pregnancy or a miscarriage? I just need some input or opinions. I am worried a little.

Dear JuanitaShaday734,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

An early period can be bleeding just days or weeks after the end of your last period. It can be caused by hormonal and/or lifestyle changes that disrupt the balance of your body. Stress or anxiety can release stress hormones that can alter your flow. Fatigue, tiredness or illness can leave you lacking energy and your period may become irregular. So, it could be that your period is simply off this month. That said, if you are feeling ill or having other symptoms of concern, don't hesitate to see your doctor.
