Early period?

jallison91 posted:
I'm 22 years old, a virgin, and not on birth control or any other daily medication except allergy pills. Ever since I was a teenager my periods have been very regular with the exception of a couple of times under extreme stress. My cycle is every 27 days.

At the beginning of this month, I got a gym membership and have since changed my diet and started exercising 4-5 times a week, whereas I was not exercising at all before and eating whatever I wanted. My last period was 18 days ago and I just started bleeding again today.

Is this normal considering my changes in diet and exercise, or should I be worried or see a doctor? I have never had spotting between periods in my life so I doubt it's that, I think it's just an actual early start to my period but I am never this early.

No, this is not normal. Skipping periods is common but early bleeding is not. I'd call your doctor and see what they say.
