AF ?? Mommy2Kay 1 child; Florida 4211 posts

I get regular and extremely heavy periods but this time AF was late by 3 days and I have literally been just spotting for 3 days now. I have never had this happen! Today is actually suppose to be the heaviest day changing my pad even every hour. It feels like I'm even wasting my pads because it's so little I just need a liner. Has this happened to anyone?



Also, I have a UTI and took AZO for it, could that possible have affected the flow? I was already late though...

Are you on any type of Birth Control?

I don't know if this is helpful, but last year my periods went from being heavy 'n long, to drastically shorter 'n lighter. and stayed that way.
Sooo could be something else, or maybe it's just..changing? :P

I forgot to add that, I have had Paragard for almost 5 years and made my periods heavier. It's so weird that I don't even have cramps, my b**bs aren't swollen, and I didn't get a break out (which usually never fails).

I would love for my periods to change to being lighter :)



It still freaks me out though lol.

It totally freaked me out at first too, haha. Especially since it happened for no apparent reason, i was well past the "post partum periods". and it just kinda...happened.

I'm just paranoid! And it doesn't help that I had sex a couple of weeks ago. I had spotted brown a lot during pregnancy...

I missed my period for a month in July, it came back in August right when it was meant to and then in September, it was MIA for 2 weeks and I spotted for a day, it was gone for another 2, spotted for another 2 and then I had the heaviest period ever for like 9 days instead of my usual 4-5.
