Does early periods affect pregnancy?

I am married for the last 9months, since then my periods are always 4 days before the date. I want to know whether it is normal or will it effect in becoming pregnant. Before marriage the periods were always ontime and sometimes early due to some stress in routine as i was a working woman.

4 days early period is perfectly normal.To my knowledge if your periods are in the range of plus minus 6 days and you otherwise do not have any other associated health problem then there's nothing to worry.If you have started birth control pills after marriage then this may be one of the reasons.

Hi, my period came 2days late . But my period is never late. (The only time my period is late was last year and turns out the next month there was no period and i was pregnant. )As soon as I got off my period I took a pregnancy test the next day and it came up negative. However I have heard its too early to test ... How long should I wait to take a prenancy test? Also I masturbated after I was off my period. Does that affect me being pregnant in the process?
