S/O sort of. LOL TMI :)

Ok, For awhile now, my cycle has been 28 days, 4 day period and spotting 2 or 3 days before.

Last time was NOT like this. I spotted for 9 days. My cycle started a day early and only lasted for 2 1/2 days. Then, 2 days later, I spotted some reddish blood on the toilet paper.

Does this sound like anything I should be concerned about?

  • As we age our cycles can change. It could be that you ovulated early or didn't ovulate at all which usually triggers and early period. Also the length of cycle makes no difference in the scheme of things. It sounds like you had an anovulatory month (no ovulation).

  • Nothing, just that you are getting older. Most women have months in which they don't ovulate. However, most women aren't in tune with their cycles either and they don't notice it as much.

  • This has happened to me too. I think it's just a part of getting older.

  • You know...I didn't have the EWCM this time, but, I seemed to have the little sharp pains of ovulation though. Weird.

  • I'm not too stressed out, well, not anymore than I have been. I did have some pull-out sex, so, I was wondering if pregnancy could be why. Or if I might have a cyst or endometriosis.
