Hi I have been noticing periods are moving ahead by one week every month, does that mean anything? They are never and have never ever been regular like u hear some women say they period comes on the same day at the same time every month, well not me but now that I have just been paying attention to them and charting them and I see now that they are moving ahead one week every month. Like July was 17-22 then Aug was 22-27 and today is Sept 27 and i started today does this mean anything? O and I also have the paragaurd copper IUD if that my help. Thanks for you help.

I'm not a doctor but this is what my doctor told me because I am an irregular bleeder and have had some complications. You are actually bleeding the way you should be. It's every four weeks from the first day of your menstruation not the last day. If you go back from the first day which was the twenty second and count up to the twenty seventh you will find that it's exactly 27 days which is when every woman should be having a cycle so you are perfectly fine and have nothing to worry about. The doctor told me every 27 to 30 days is normal for woman.
