Change in cycle
Hi Doc, I posted last week sometime and advised you like this
My period thus far for the last couple of months:
27d, 26d, 28d, 29d
started menses on Saturday afternoon - it was very light - not as usual - didn't require to change pad - no bleeding overnight
Sunday period seemed more normal, but only for a couple of hours
Today all clear again.

How do I interpret this? Has my cycle now changed to be longer? Could I be pregnant with this bleeding ie. 'early bleed'?

What can I do to regulate my cycles other than the pill?

Thank you for your helpful advise.

Your periods are probably within a regular cycle length. If you are unsure about pregnancy do a pregnancy test
