I am currently experiencing an abnormal cycle, along with nausea,

This answer was rated:

I am currently experiencing an abnormal cycle, along with nausea, dizziness, soreness in my legs, fatigue, frequent urination. My cycle usually starts off moderate, then heavy, then light. My cycles lasts for 5 days. This time my cycle started light, then moderate, and from time to time I have spotting. Yesterday was the day for my cycle to start. Is this my monthly cycle or is this something pertaining to pregnancy?

Dr. Pfeiffer :

hello

Dr. Pfeiffer :

did your cycle start yesterday or has it failed to start yet?

Dr. Pfeiffer :

are you trying to get pregnant?

Customer:

it started yesterday

Customer:

no Im not trying to cnceive

Dr. Pfeiffer :

ok.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

is the flow normal?

Customer:

no. light to moderate bleeding

Dr. Pfeiffer :

ok.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

and how old are you?

Customer:

cramping only in my abdominal area

Customer:

28 today

Dr. Pfeiffer :

happy birthday!

Customer:

thank u

Dr. Pfeiffer :

ok...so, if the timing is normal it's not pregnancy related.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

it isn't terribly uncommon for flow to change depending on external factors...

Dr. Pfeiffer :

stress, anxiety, illness, medications, etc..

Dr. Pfeiffer :

flow can change and that's not a big deal.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

if you have bleeding or spotting between your periods..that could be from ovulation, pregnancy, polyps, fibroids...

Customer:

even with the nausea and other symptoms I have been experiencing??

Dr. Pfeiffer :

that's usually due to horomonal fluctuations.

Customer:

well I have a streak of blood last week...

Dr. Pfeiffer :

I should go back a bit...if the bleeding is light and a bit early that could represent implantation bleeding..

Dr. Pfeiffer :

but if the timing is normal...most likely your monthly cycle.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

but no harm in doing a pregnancy test if there's a chance of pregnancy.

Customer:

ok. thank u

Dr. Pfeiffer :

sure.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

have a happy birthday!!

Customer:

thank u
