I usually have a very regular 30 day cycle.  I'm on CD20 and today I get cramping and some (warning TMI!) blood clots and small amount of bleeding.  What is up with that?  Is it just an early period - I'm obviously hoping for a miracle (given my infertility issues!) but if this is just AF then why would I suddenly get a 20-day cycle?  Bleeding has stopped now.

I know time will tell and I just have to wait and see what the next few days show, but I'm confused!

bump :-)

Should I be worried if it is AF showing up early - I thought a 20 day cycle was unusually short?  Anyone else had this happen before?

Hi tryingforanother,

I'm no expert but 20I days does seem short... I just had an implanon removed and during the 2day and a half years I had it, I had very irregular bleeding - spotting like you mentioned and very heavy bleeds - so it is hard for me to remember what 'normal' is like...

Having said that, what you have described does not sound like a 'proper' period to me. All you can really do is wait and see if a normal AF arrives on your normal due day and/or POAS...

Sorry, I'm not much help, I know but I'm relearning about my own body at the moment myself.
