Hi let me start by I'm 25 years of age and I have a son that is 5 years old. in April this year I had a miscarriage due to a blighted ovum and had a D&C to remove it. Now my Hubby and I are trying again but for some unknown reason my periods are a little weird last month I started with brown spotting for 3 days then heavey spotting for 2 days then light spotting for 3 days. This month I started with a light pinkish color spot when I wiped after going to the loo and then nothing the next day until later that day did I start having a bright red discharge not heavy just only when I wiped and I had slight head aches and not feeling to well that lasted only that day and the bleeding carried on till this Monday still light (in between I have had slight cramps not the usual period cramps and a bit of butterflies in the abdominal area)now today and yesterday I have been having a bit of a reddish brown discharge. Please let it be known this not a usual period for mePlease help I am so confused!
Welcome to the forum nd thanks for posting on it. There are numerous reasons for having irregular periods. . High level of stress, cholesterol, hormonal imbalance, chain smoking, dramatic changes in your life style may be some of the common causes of you irregular periods.
Other important and frequent causes of irregular periods are PCOS and fibroid uterus. If this was the first episode of irregularity in the periods, then wait for the coming cycle and try lifestyle modification by reducing stress and decreasing cholesterol levels.
