Recently I have been getting my period within 9, 10 or 11 days and I was wondering what could be the cause of this?

Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for reaching out to the EmpowHER community and sharing your question! Having your period this frequently can sometimes be a sign of infection or other medical problem that you need to discuss with your doctor. Depending on how much blood you are loosing, you may be at risk for becoming anemic. 

Anon, I would call your doctor and schedule an exam. In the meantime, here is an article from the EmpowHER community Reasons for Having a Period Every Two Weeks. 

Was this helpful? Let me know if you are able to see your doctor.
