Hi, Monetmiller.

Thank you for your post.

It's not unusual for a period to occasionally be late or even early. If the period is otherwise normal in flow and duration, I'd not be concerned. An early period can be caused by hormonal and/or lifestyle changes that disrupt the balance of your body. Hormones can become unbalanced by taking contraceptive pills, or emergency contraception. Stress or anxiety can release stress hormones that can alter your flow as well.
