I'm not sure what is going on with my body the last few months. I usually get my period around the 2nd of the month every month, but the past six months have been really strange. In Jan I got it on the 2nd, Feb I got it the 5th, March I got it the 7th, April I got it the 9th, then in may I didn't get it until the 20th. Its now June 20th and I haven't gotten it, I am worried that something could be wrong with me. Not just have my periods been strange but every month that I got it later a couple days after my period is over I start getting really sharp pain in my stomach and start spotting for a couple days, each period last about 6 days and the spotting afterwards last for about 3 to 4 days every month. I am really worried about this, can anybody help me figure out what it could be?

How old are you?

Cycles tend to change with age. As a general rule, a "normal" cycle can run anywhere from 21 to 35 days.
