I m 20 years old and my periods are normally VERY regular. I have a lighter period for the entire 5-6 days, but this last time it has been extremely light and a few days with no bleeding..but now it is back and this would be the 9th day. It is so light, but it won t completely stop. I ve recently lost quite a bit of weight for my size. I was around 95/96 and dropped down to 91 in two weeks..could this be why my body is just reacting weird? I have anorexia and have been struggling alot with eating and weight and food..so could that also have something to do with it? Please help me! i m getting worried!!!

My period is 9 days late. I had light bleeding a week before my period was due. I have taken several home pregnancy tests beginning on 5 days late and one blood test at the doctor. All negative. No real symptoms. Possibly mild back cramping but I can t tell if my mind is playing tricks on me. I am very stressed about this. What could be going on?

i have a regular period. I had it on the first of March. My period usually lasted for a week. I have to travel on the 6th and i took a medicine to stop the spotting on the 8th until 14th. Then I had this bleeding. I was wondering if there is a tendency for me to get pregnant after that? And if not, will my period be still as regular as it is? I mean, will I wait for my period on the same date it comes or should I wait it until the last day of my bleeding? Thank you so much.

Hello last month, June 3rd, I had unprotected sex and the same day I took the emergency pill, Plan B. On June 17th I had bleeding that lasted 3 days but I'm not sure if it was implantation bleeding or not. Now it is July 17th and for the past week I have had soft stools that will not go away. I'm not sure if I am pregnant or not and the thought is unsettling. Also I have not gotten my period this month yet.

Thank you,
Cindy
