  • I had a weird period.. scared me..

    Ok so.. I my "period" ended about two days ago.
    It lasted like.. 3 days.. and It was really weird, usually it lasts for about 4-5 days and is mild.
    But this time it was.. well not even really bloody.
    It was like spots of dark reddish brown, but I didn't even need to change my pad at ALL, I did because it got gross and I needed a fresh one.
    But like, it wasn't even like... blood? I mean there were like little globs but I didn't bleed like normal.. it was so light it was almost non existent..
    And it scares me because It's just not what I usually get.
    I have been having a lot of things happen that stress me out, like my grandmother recently being put in the hospital... And I did start smoking..
    Could those be the cause?
    I tried searching for answers on the internet but nothing answered my question.
    I was hoping I could get some help here..

  • Stress will mess with your cycle. It sounds fine to me.

      • Stress definately plays a part... I am sure that's what is happening to you.

        But, can I ask that you don't write in pink... (favorite colour?)

        It's just hard to read that's all...

        Don't freak out.. you had a period irrespective...

        Keep smiling.

        • I honestly believe its just stress. When my mom was in the hospital, mine would do the same thing. I started a period 2 days before my mom passed away in the hospital. only lasted long enough to be annoying while i was in the hospital with her. personally my periods haven't been the same since. I've been depressed and stress and mine have been crazy. Everything from skipping to bleeding for 95 days straight. Stress plays a HUGE roll.

          • Oh wow, I'm glad to hear that it's most likely just stress, because that would make the most sense, thanks for the help, I really appreciate it, and haha sorry, the pink was pretty light. :P
