Spotting after Car Accident
I was involved in a car accident on Saturday evening. We drove into a herd of cows on a backroad from Potgietersrus to Burgersfort. I have no injuries except for the fact that my stomach is bruised from the seatbelt. My concern is that I have abdominal pains and spotting. My period is only due in 2 weeks. Is it possible that my period started due to shock or should I go and have it checked out?

I doubt that this has caused your period to start early. You may have caused some bruising to the uterus. I would suggest that you have it checked.
