I would like to know whether the periods was early only this time or is it irregular anyways.

A few other questions I would like you to answer like:
How long have you been married for?
Do you take any medications right now?
How long have you been trying for pregnancy?

I would also like you to undergo few basic tests like: CBC with ESR, RBS, Thyroid function tests, ultrasound of pelvis from you.
A semen analysis of your husband.

The string blood tinged discharge might be due to hormonal imbalance, due to which probably you might have got your periods a week early.

I would like to review with the answers of the above questions and the test reports.

Don't worry, all the best.
Take care.

Hi I have had messed up periods for 3 months
Since I came of the pill I have been with my partner for about 9 months. I take no other medication could it be cancer?
Answered by Dr. Rishma Lakhani 17 minutes later

It does not seem cancer from the history you give, and also cancer has other associated symptoms of weakness,/ fatigue, weight loss, anemia, bleeding after intercourse, inter-menstrual bleeding, which I think you don't have right?

If you are very much concerned and anxious I would advise you to go and get a checkup done once and also get a PAP's smear done once which is the screening test for cervical cancer.

Don' worry, take care.
