Can stress impact your period my period came on time for my cycle length.. When it came it was heavy with a few clotting, second day it was medium flow. Now third day the bleeding a stopping and is thick and brown? And Im normally on period for a week?

Could stress be doing this to my period?

You know, i'm wondering if you have observed your period this carefully before. Sometimes, when we're stressed and worried about something, we're extra observant of it in a way that we haven't been previously.

I bring this up because it's possible that your period has had different types of flows before and that you didn't pay as much attention to it as you're doing now.

How did the self-care time you talked about with heather yesterday go?
