Default Womanly questions thread (possible TMI)

I have some questions (maybe others might have similar issues) that since I have been taking vita C, this months ahh ... Aunt Flow, has (or is trying to, ) come early (my day 28 is Saturday) but I have started lightly bleeding today which is the earliest I have ever started.

I will be 31 on Wednesday so I don't know if its the C I have been taking, the fact that I am getting older or a combo of both. Anyone else have these issues?

I've never heard of vitamin C have any effect on your cycle but I could be wrong.
That said.. cycles get delayed for all kinds of reasons (stress?)

Is needing to get back on BC for obvious reasons, plus to help my hellacious periods.

But, that means I would have to go to the doctor AND to the gyno. Yuck.

Still exploring options, but leaning towards an IUD. Not sure if I would want to go with copper vs plastic.

If you take a large enough dose, Vitamin C will induce bleeding at any point in your cycle. It is one of the first suggested home remedies for a late period. It does work, there is some science behind it...increases estrogen levels.

This interesting and worth a shot. I haven't had a period since May 1st which isn't super unusual for me, but I might try this out.

I am not taking a huge dose, I just take the recommended 2 per day currently per the label instructions It's weird because my cycles have prevously have been longer, but a few weeks or so ago I did double up because I was feeling sick.

I am about to turn 33 and I have been having shorter cycles lately too. It is super annoying. I'm really getting tempted to go back on the pill, but it kind of creeps me out, sigh.

Maybe it's just a sign of me getting older ... Maybe it means something? Like I'm getting ready for menopause or something xD

maybe Aunt Flo was going to come in early anyways - but since you are taking Vit.C she came MUCH earlier?

No chance you could be pregnant...?

Can get spotting just before a due period date. Plus the sickness feeling.

If you are regular like clockwork, there's been no medication change, no undue stress, no major life events and deffo sure not pregnant then I would just keep an eye on it. I certainly wouldn't be too worried at this point though, as our bodies like to do these things. There's no reason at all your body should be changing its cycle because you're in your 30s, you're young yet. But your body will do its own thing, so thats not to say it can't happen.

If there's some major change to your usual cycle I'd make a dr appointment.
