Period question...TMI... adult content

Ok, so wednesday I think it was my period showed up, it was very light, I was using the light tampons for like 2 days, and then ran out so I switched to regular for the next day, ok so last night I take my tampon out, put on a pad for bed, and sleep, wake up no blood, no blod on tampon before bed either (YEAY!! period is gone! ) went through more than half my day with out a pad or tampon, then went pee before leaving for our errands today, and it looked as if my period had JUST started all over again! wth?! I am not breast feeding, i am NOT pregnant, haven't had sex in over 2 months, and im not taking any birth controll pills/patches/shots/diagphram etc....

What is going on with me?! this has NEVER happend to me before.

  • Totally normal. It was a hormonal flucuation. I get this every 4-5mths. I will have a period for like 2 days and then it will vanish and then comeback with a vengence the next day

  • Our bodies can change like that. Drink more water. I don't believe we have any real control over the flow of our periods unless you use medication. If you are really concerned, ask your physician.

  • How old are you? Periods can change all the time with hormone changes, stress, and your body's reaction to your life right now!! I am an EMT and have heard it all!! Call your Dr. and get in to see them. Maybe you need to have you levels checked.
