i am 34 yrs old and have always had normal periods (every 24-28 days). i had my last period 2 weeks ago... i woke up this morning and have again started my period! it appears to be a "normal" period (only 2 weeks, or so early). i have never had this happen to me before and now i am really worried!! i heard that stress can cause your period to be late but can it also cause it to come early? exactly 2 weeks ago when my period started i had an extremely stressful day full of anxiety because of some relationship issues. the stress lasted a couple of days and subsided and i really hadn't thought about it until now. what are the chances that this could be caused by cancer?! also, i am not on BP pills or any medication and i am not pregnant...
It is extremely common for women to have an usual cycle every now or then. I'm surprised you haven't before now!
If nothing further unusual happens, I would chalk it up to stress. If it starts to become a pattern that you bleed every two weeks, then it is time to check in with your gynecologist. Even then it is much more likely to be a hormonal problem or polyp than cancer. So risk that this is cancer is close to zero!
Thanks for your response! I have a Dr. Appt with a nurse practioner tomorrow... I have always been afraid of Dr's and have avoided them because I'm always afraid they will find something majorly wrong with me. I have a phobia obviously... I have never had a pap or pelvic exam and have had no blood work done in 10 yrs! I am extremely nervous and have been crying daily the last few days... Any further advice or support would be appreciated!! When I did go to the Dr. 10 yrs ago I had elevated prolactin levels and testosterone levels. I also have excess body and facial hair. I think perhaps I could have PCOS but I have always had very normal monthly cycles...
My question is regarding plan b. My last period ended Nov 19. I slept with my boyfriend Nov 22. The next day ran out and got Plan B to b safe. A week later Nov 29th I started to spot and looked like my normal period. Is this normal? I took a pregnancy test that day too and came out negative. When can I expect my actual period?
