Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
You are having irregular periods due to hormonal disturbance. First thing is you wait for five more days for your periods. if they do not come then go for a pregnancy test of urine. If that also comes negative then you must take hormonal treatment to regularize your periods.

A couple days ago I also had really bad stomach pains that became really bad and lasted all night. What could cause this? Are these things related?

Hi,, I am 33 years old, unmarried. My periods are regular start after every 28 days. But Since last 3 years I have scanty periods. It is very dark like close to brown and just for two days after that spotting occurs for 3 days total 5 days. Some times I have needle like pain to the both sides. but after doing yoga pain disappeared. Three years before it was not like this. My periods were for 6 days and bright with normal colour as it should be. What is the reason behind it? Thanking You in advance

For 4 days now I ve had spotting the first day it was light brown, second day it was brownish yellow and the last two days it s been brown.. Then I had sex and I was in the shower and a dark brown chunky discharge came out sorta like a period. I have irregular periods and haven t had my period in 10 months. Do you have any idea of what it might be?
