OK, to begin with, my period is usually VERY irregular and will sometimes skip for months and then I will have my period again (it is in my genes). I always have PMS (moody, cramps, sensitive breasts) so I always know that my period is on its way. Well a few days ago I started my period after just 26 days after I started my previous period (for me that's not normal). I had NO symptoms and still don't have any. And I always know when ovulate (discharge, sensitive boobs etc) and this time there were no signs at all. I had my appendix removed a few days ago, could that have anything to do with it? Or is this normal to sometimes happen (to have no PMS)? I have made an appointment with a gynecologist, but I just want some idea of what to expect. Oh, And my period also seems almost more watery than before. Not really watery but more see through, I don't know how to explain.

My last period was VERY heavy, more cramps and extremely sensitive boobs during ovulation and period.

Thanks for joining me on ehealthforum.
The irregularity of the periods until now could be due to that fact is that you were having anovulatory cycles (without egg release from the ovary).
It is not necessary to have PMS each time you have your periods. Wait for your next periods and see how they are. If they continue to be like this one, then it would mean that you have shifted to having ovulatory cycles (with egg release from ovaries) which are regular.
Get your symptoms discussed with your healthcare provider/gynecologist, and go ahead with examination and investigations (ultrasound scan, blood tests and hormonal tests) to find out the cause for them. Start with treatment if indicated by the test results.
Take care.
