  • hun there is no inside clock in your body saying your period will be exactly the same each month. It can change anytime, even if you've had it for 3 years, 5 years, 20 years. You went to the doctor, your not pregnant, so what do you want the women on here to tell you????

  • stress, hormones, starting the "cycle of life" (as in menopause).....any number of things

  • then you are early in your cycle. your bosy isn't always going to make your periods the same length, the same exact amount of blood, the same number of can change and be heavier one month, lighter another, 5 days one month, 2 or 3's not exact.

  • i dont know. im just paranoid i guess. my mom got pregnant with me when she was my age and it may sound crazy but i have a weird connection to the stars and i just got this weird feeling about next month.

  • it's perfectly normal. your cycles get thrown off from stress, hormones, thyroid issues, and a lot of other things such as weight gain or weight loss. Just because you have been regular does not mean you will stay regular. Being paranoid about it is stress. if you are not wanting a baby right now, you need to use birth control or don't have sex.

  • I am 27 years old and have had my period since I was 12 and every few years it always changes up on me. It can also change if you are spending more time then usual with other females. Somehow our bodies will start to time itself with them. Change in activity such as exercising more or less then what you would normally do can alter it as well. And yes any kind of stress can alter it and if you are thinking you are pregnant or are stressing that you are then you can mess you cycle up and even experience signs of pregnancy. If you have had all the test and exams and the doctor says they are fine then you are fine. Just relax and let your body do its thing.
