You’re sitting on the sidelines of your kid’s sporting event and get that sudden feeling that something’s terribly wrong. You’re beginning to feel your underwear getting damp and you’re terrified to stand up and discover you’re having a middle school girl problem and you’re decades past middle school age!
We’ve all experienced a premature period, and it’s never fun to be caught with no protection. Why do periods arrive earlier than expected for individuals who have a normally predictable period? Some women have irregular periods often, while others have them very rarely in their lifetime.
While an early period is not necessarily a cause for great concern, it is a good idea to make note of your cycle so you’re able to track and identify changes.
Possible Reasons For Your Early Period:
- Hormonal Imbalance
- Medication usage
- Menopause or the eventual arrival of menopause (perimenopause)
- Exercising excessively
- Lack of nutrition
- Increased stress levels
- Sudden weight gain or loss
- Missing birth control pill usage
