Hello Anonymous,

How old are you?

If you are an adolescent who has just started to menstruate, that could be the reason. The menstrual cycle can be irregular in the early years.

If you are in your 50s, this could be a sign of early perimenopause. As hormone levels fluctuate, the menstrual cycle becomes irregular.

Regards,
Maryann

Hello Anonymous,

You need to be examined by your physician. Consider scheduling an appointment with your gynecologist, who knows you and your medical history.

I have normal periods, Although this year my period has been slightly irregular. Starting in June of this year, i noticed that I was spotting two weeks after my period. Then after spotting for 4 days, I got my period again two weeks later. Then in early July, I was Spotting again on the 7th, then my period on the 30th. August, September, and October were regular periods a month apart. November which was last month I spotted a little and got my period at the end of the month. And right after that period, I was off for about a week then more Spotting, and the following week , which is now, I have my period again! Idk what's going on with my body. I've never had irregular periods and have never spotted this much. I just turned 27 and I'm only sexually active with my boyfriend of 8 years. I havent had a dramatic change in my weight and am positive it's not an std or sti. I'm thinking I may go to urgent care and get referred to a specialist. I made an appointment to see my doctor and nothing is open until January.. I don't want to wait that long. Please help!

Hello Anonymous,

January is only weeks away, and you have been experiencing this since June. You could visit an urgent care center, but honestly this will not be looked upon as urgent.

I'm 26 and right now my husband and I are working on kid number two. Yesterday my ovulation test came back positive, fourteen days in, and today it seems like I'm suddenly having my period. Of course the pregnancy test today came back negative, like the last few I've taken sadly, and I don't believe I'll be able to get any accurate results for another few weeks. I've had months with double periods only a few times before so is it just a horrible coincidence that I've having one again, if it's even possible after testing positive for ovulation. Or is it more likely something might be wrong? As of right now my doctor's only advice is to wait a little longer but I'm scared and hopeful it might have something to do with getting pregnant.
