What could be the cause of a really irregular period?

Husband & I had sex May 29. Spotting started 3 days early (June 7). Never happened before. Wore panty liners for 7 days and never stained them. Most of the time, I would only see blood when I wiped and then at times none at all. Day 8 (which I never go so long on my peiord) started a light flow that got heavier thru Day 9 and then lighter again Day 10. Continued spotting again thru Day 11. Had 1 very light flow and then spotted again. Day 12, still spotting. Didn't stop seeing any form of blood until this day. This is a long time to see any type of bleeding. It has never happened to me before. I never got any symptoms of my period coming on like before, such as sore-tender breasts, freq urination, cramps, or blotting. What could cause an irregular period like this? Now my breasts are starting to feel full and tender. Thank you.

  • I've had a couple of periods like that after anovulatory cycles. Without ovulating, there's no hormonal shift to tell your body to act the way it does normally before your period.

  • Stress, PCOS as well as a bunch of other things can cause your cycles to go haywire.
