i am 18 years old. my last official period was september 2nd-6th. i believe i am on my period currently (since 13th of october), but symptoms are very different this month. first of all, my periods are usually moderate in terms of flow, but this time it seems to be very very light. my period blood only shows up when i wipe, and little blood is on the actual pad. in addition, my period seems to be late by 10 days, which isn\'t normal for me because i usually have regular periods (28-31 days) but this one seems like it started after 40 days. starting on the 10th, i had very little spotting, but nothing on the pad again. i never had sex. my breasts have also been tender for the past couple of days, but that may be due to PMS.
also, i\'ve been experiencing a lot of abdominal discomfort for a while now (i think i might have irritable bowel syndrome, but i\'m not sure). every time i eat something (regardless of how much i eat), my abdomen seems to bloat a lot.
why has my period changed? (is this even my period?)
