    its november and i got my period on the 3rd the beginning of the month and its the end of the month its the 1st already and i started seeing blood today what does that mean?does that mean im pregnant? or is it because its almost next month?
    georgiagail responded:
    I've never figured out why women think bleeding means they might be pregnant. Pregnancy is the CESSATION of menstruation.

    A normal cycle is considered to be anywhere between 21 and 35 days so yes, this is likely the start of your next menstrual period.

    Well the reason for the confusion is because there is always the possibility of spotting Gail... So, young, un-experienced women might not understand or know the difference. In general, she is concerned. No need to be rude.
