Welcome to ehealthforum.
Early bleeding could have been suggestive of probable implantation bleeding if you had been sexually active around your peak fertile days or ovulation time. The delayed periods and spotting that you describe could indicate pregnancy possibility, hormonal or endometrial changes. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation (to look for underlying cause and rule out pregnancy chances), clarification and assistance. Get started on treatment as appropriate (based on evaluation results) to help you control the symptoms and regulate your periods better. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
