Early bird period

 
My period seems to be getting earlier and earlier every month! I just got mine today and it's about a week earlier than last month. Is this normal or should I be concerned?

 

Each girl’s period is 100-percent unique, right down to the number of days of your cycle. A standard cycle is 28 days—not a full calendar month. For girls who are regular, it’s typical to get your period a few days earlier each month…if you’re counting week-by-week instead of by the actual day.

 

Further, it’s not unusual for your period to come earlier or later than “normal” because of a variety of things going on your life, from stress to a change in diet. Unless you experience a significant change—getting your period repeatedly far earlier than you should or seeing it drop off for months on end—you shouldn’t be worried. But if you are, give your doc a call, just to be on the safe side.
