    “Every woman has her monthly cycle at an interval of 28 days.” Nope, not remotely true. Didn’t bother with the rest of the article since you don’t even get this most basic fact right, and certainly won’t bother with the rest of your website.

      Well, of would have read a little further along you would have noticed the author said for some women may be a little shorter or a little longer. Stop being so arrogant. If you knew everything you wouldn’t be here in the first place.

        Im sure she would of gotten the point from the previous comment,calling someone dumb is unnecessary. If we want people to be open to learning we shouldn’t also try and make em feel stupid for learning…

    “In some the interval may shorter and in others it may be longer.”
    The next sentence…. This was an accurate and informative article.

    Thank you so much for your information. It was helpful, I thought I was 4 weeks pregnant and I’m starting to feel maybe it was just on ma head because I’m trying so hard for a baby.so this sudden blood flow almost gave me a heart attack, from ma reading I believe it was just a delayed period because I don’t see the greyish tissue mass and the pain is bearable though my blood flow is heavy than any other flows I have had before. Thank you very much.

        Hi I just had a similar experience this past couple of days. My cycle started which I thought very light but very very painful. Right after was the heavy bleeding very dark like brick red and slimy. I passed a few clots but thought it was normal and then the next day I-PASS a huge clot that I felt started to drop. I caught it and it didn’t look normal. But after that pass bleeding slow just a little and after I passed another one and the bleeding has stopped. The pain is still here and I don’t know if it was my period or miscarriage. Can someone please help?

    My last period was February 10. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for about 3 months now. I have previously been pregnant once before, we have a seven year old together. I have also take oral birth control before for reasonable amount of time.
    I am concerned right now because I’m having what feels like mild period cramps. We are also all getting over the flu in my house.
    I am scared that I might be miscarrying or have before and not realized it, because it feels so much like a normal period.

      This is probably ovulation you are feeling, after ttc, having one ectopic and one (possibly two after today) miscarriage I am way more aware of my body changes during my cycle, especially with ovulation. I lost my left tube and can feel when I am ovulating on my right side now.

    The image accompanying this article is in poor taste, to say the least. What looks like an aborted foetus, greeting women who are probably here because they’re worried they’re miscarrying? How insensitive! Even if the foetus is supposed to be alive, people who are scared they are losing their baby don’t want to see what is dying inside them! It’s shocking, and disturbing – please consider taking it down.

      That was my first thought too. Very helpful article but the accompanying picture triggers some deep emotions right now.

    My last period was 10th April 2017 and I’d been having symptoms of pregnancy but getting negative results and this morning I started bleeding heavy with two big blood clots and feeling dizzy and weak and in pain. Could this be a miscarriage (10weeks) or a delayed period ?

      It’d need to be a lot of blood- sounds like a late period but if in doubt see a doctor

    I’m not sure if it’s possible to leave a review, but if it is, I don’t know how to. This was a very informative article that I’m glad I stumbled across, the authors seem to be very knowledgeable on the topic. Helped ease my mind, thank you!

      The zygote does not implant into the vaginal wall. It implants into the uterine wall. How can I trust your article if that information is wrong?

    So I have a question. My “period” cane two weeks early. No symptoms, want expecting it. It just hit. It was ready heavy for about a day. I never cramp with my period, but the night it started, I was having cramps in my lower left abdomen. They were so bad I almost went to the e.r. I was almost in tears it hurt so bad. The cramping only lasted like an hour. Since then, my period went to spotting no more heavy flow. Is it possible it was a miscarriage being 2 weeks early from my regular cycle?

    My question is; does my experience sound like a period or Early/Chemical miscarriage? My period is basically regular, maybe 1-2 early or late but I know when. I usually PMS 1-2weeks before periods, that consist of cravings, mood swings, bloating, and tender breast. This past cycle I just finished came a week early (which I’ve never had happen) and I’ve had new symptoms. Right before getting my period I had lower abdominal cramps, which I do get but I never get them before my period starts always the second day. The cramps were slightly more severe than usual but not extremely painful. Through the night it traveled more towards my stomach. I also was slightly nauseous, not a normal period sign for me. Then I had some back pain which, again, I’ve never had that. Thinking it was my period coming I went to the restroom to check and I had bright red spotting that was light, not heavy. I personally haven’t experienced spotting before a period. About 2hrs later Is when my bleeding started, it seemed a bit heavier than usual (my cycles are on the heavier side to begin with though). I brushed it off as a heavy one. But on the 2nd day is when I thought it may be something different. I had more clots than usual. By the 3rd day it was still heavy and clotting. My period normally slow down by the 4th and are other done or spotting by the 5th day. I’m just done today, which is the 7th day. My period hasn’t ever extended past the 5th or 6th day. So that’s why I’m thinking it was something different. I haven’t taken a test or even thought it could have been a possibility of almost being pregnant.

    I was about to have my first papsmear but the midwife didn’t allow me cause she saw some blood inside of my uterus using a buds, and she told me that I’m having my period but then until now there isn’t any blood discharge. I’m really confused what was happening. And I’m also suspecting if I am pregnant.

    I am still bleeding after 7 days, just a little red spotting left. It came on as the article described: brown spotting then large red clots. I was late, less than 2 weeks. But the weird thing is I had bad leg cramps on the outside of my left thigh just before the bleeding started. After bleeding they were back for a fleeting moment. Ive had more cramping too.

    Also, usually I get a 2 day migraine right before my period starts with the estrogen drop, for which I take a triptan. This time, the migraine came after my period started and lasted 3 days.
