I havent gotten my period yet, but for 5 days or so I've been feeling cramps on and off. If I got my period early last month, does that mean it should come the same time it came (early) last month or that it should return to it's normal time? Also, if theres 30 days in April does this effect my period by a day? Im freaking out, because I took the last reply I recieved very seriously (which said I didn't need a test), so now I'm racking my brain with different crazy scenarios. I know worrying can delay your period, and I've also been running a lot for my sport (every day). Exercise and change in physical activity can delay it as well, right? I'm not sure how to react.
Thank you so much in advance

My guess, Chicklet, is that it's those things combined with your massive stress about pregnancy that have your period off kilter.

How long your cycles go for depends on...well, how long your cycles usually are, if they're regulated, in numbers of days, not by dates. So, if you have 28-day cycles, you should expect your peiod every 28 days or so.

I'd suggest you do your best to simply relax and slow down a little.
