I may be able help?
I have been getting that too! But I have missed nearly 4 periods. I only started recently as well.
I have no idea what it is, but i did think that it coul be instead of having a period? I am not sure but it does make sense.

Have either of you had the contraceptive injection? It sounds typical of the side effects of that. It's unnerving but nothing to worry about.

See your Gyn
Please contact your OBGYN, irregular periods can be a symptom of many things, one being Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. It is very important that you have full flow period at least three times a year, and to be aware of what and why your body is doing what it is doing.
