my history: non cancerous cyst removal outside left ovary last year. Periods usually regular for a few months and then changes to a different time/week etc. of the month. Almost always VERY heavy the first couple of days and lasts 5-7 days. Health generally good- gym and eat well/ Since last week have been taking Duromine and lost 3 kgs. Am not underweight, am not over either. Just in the healthy BMI range. Period was fine last month. Though this month has seen me with ALOT of stress at work.

Got my period a couple of days ago- On the 1st day= end of the day when checking- it was very dark- almost black looking (although i did have the same pad on the whole day) and seemed dry almost. The next day, had normal period color although not much (As if i was nearing the end of my period). 3rd day- a couple of spots of blood. today- nothing.

What do you think???? I get paranoid easily so just need to check!


THanks!

Are you having unprotected sex?
How old are you?

Sometimes weird periods happen. Could you be pregnant? It's probably nothing.

I wouldn't recommend using the same sanitary pad all day long. That is not great hygeine. The box recommends that you change it about every 3-4 hours. They aren't meant to be used like a blood diaper.

When you're not bleeding heavily, it's hard to want to change the thing since it's molded itself to the shape of your crotch and it's finally comfortable. I've done it too.

Stress can cause variations in your cycle....
That's probably what it is.
