I am glad to help you. Answers are intended to provide general medical information only.If there is any possibility of pregnancy, that is always the first thing we check when a woman has any irregularity to her period. It is common with a pregnancy to have spotting at about the time the normal period is due. This can be because of the embryo attaching to the wall of the uterus. So if there is a possibility of pregnancy, a home pregnancy test using first morning urine would be the first thing to check. First morning urine is more accurate because the HCG pregnancy hormone is concentrated in the urine in the morning from not drinking fluids all night. If the test is negative, it may be because of a skipped ovulation. This happens to most women at some point in their lives at times of stress. Increased exercise, eating disorders and weight change can also cause hormonal changes, skipped ovulation and an irregular period. Please ask questions if you have any. I'd like to provide as much information as you need to get excellent service.
