Hi everyone, usually my period is pretty consistent. I've been tracking it for about four years now and there's only been one time when my cycles weren't 28-30 days. However, I waited an extra six days out of that time for my last period, and it's been acting really weird. Usually I have my period for four days, and the first two are very heavy (soak through a super plus tampon in about three hours) and the last two are very light. But I'm on my second day of my period, and I've barely bled at all! So I stopped using tampons and am just using a pantiliner, and when I went to the bathroom I noticed that it's a lot clumpier/there are more clots than usual.
Can normal stress cause this? I've been worrying about a couple of exams/having trouble with my girlfriend's mother, but I mean, I'm used to stress and this has never happened before.
Also, my I told my mom and she said that "periods usually change cycles every few years, it's normal." Does this really happen? I've never heard of it before.
edit: I didn't realize there was a very similar post to mine posted not too long ago. sorry, I hope this isn't a problem!
