I used to be fairly regular although I had a very short cycle. I felt like I was always having my period. Then in my early to mid twenties, I just started having the worst most unpredictable periods. I got tested for a number of things and everything was fine with regards to that. My body just lost its syncrony or something. I would tell you to not worry too much. It is good that you are seeing a doctor. Hopefully it is not PCOS and if it is, you have your doctor to help you choose the right treatment plan. I have a few friends with PCOS and they are all do very well in spite of their intitial concern. Best of luck! 🙂

garnobella :  I had this this month. I’m not TTC so I don’t pay LOADS of attention because my cycles have been out of whack for a while. 

I doubt it’s PCOS, but it could be what I have which is MCOS. I don’t know if that’s ACTUALLY what it is called, but it’s what my Gyno referred to it as.

Basically, my ovaries produce a high number of cysts each month (Multi-Cystic Ovary Syndrome). It’s not as severe as PCOS, but on months I have lots of cysts my periods will be heavier. It’s weird, but she says it has no impact on fertility. 

If you’re in pain, tell your doctor. I told mine that I was in pain during sex so she gave me an exam and then sent me off for tests. Also, if you’re able to have a smear done (you have to be 25 here in the UK usually, but I don’t know about the US) then have it done for peace of mind.

This happened to me, very randomly, a few months ago, and it freaked me out. I called my gyno and she said that it’s not uncommon for it t happen once in a while, and they only really get concerned if it happens for at least 3 cycles in a row. In my case, she thinks it’s likely that my body was just trying to eliminate the very last of my period. The other possibility is that a small cyst burst. For me, the bleeding happened during a very intense, long hike up a mountain, so the strain on my body might have triggered it too. You’re wise to call your doctor, but don’t panic. Best of luck!
