I am having an early period, two weeks earlier than I normally should. I generally have a very regular cycle, so this is unusual for me. I have had some stress related to corona, but not so much that it is taking over my life. I also had some lower abdominal pain for a couple of days at the beginning of the week. Should I be concerned?
I would definitely call your women’s health provider to discuss more in detail as the change in bleeding pattern coupled with lower abdominal pain can occur for many reasons. They will run through a series of questions to give you the best answer and/or recommend any further testing and/or imaging.
