Is There Something Wrong With My Period?



I had my period 15 to 16 days after my last one. It normally comes every 20 to 22 days. I`m bleeding very heavy but no clots. Do you think that I`m pregnant or is something wrong?


Menstrual periods can vary for many reasons. You have a short cycle (20-22 days) to begin with, so a change for 15 or 16 days may be just a variation.  If your period is also heavier this time, that could also be a variation.  If you are worried that you might be pregnant, it is possible that you had a spontaneous abortion — in fact, many women who lose pregnancies did not even know they were pregnant.  Finally, if you continue to be concerned, please see your health care provider.
