Hey girls

Don't know why I feel the need to change my name for a perfectly normal question but facebook has made me more wary about who knows what!

1. I've got my AF exactly 2 weeks after my last one - always been regular as clockwork before. Why would this happen? Am not TTC or anything, Dh has had the snip so can't be pregnancy related.

2. Is it normal to have clots in AF? I remember at a routine medical a GP aking me if I had clots in my AF but I didn't ask what was normal and whether I should have clots or shouldn't. Can I have a poll on what's normal please!

Hello all, just joined last week and have enjoyed reading all the interesting facts about what were all going through. Bit embarassing but has anyone heard of women getting varicose veins around the vulva? app its common but i cant find info on it anywhere. due in 6 weeks and bit worried about delivery (blush)

afqnc - I think that you can have weird one-offs. Personally I would wait a month and, if everything is back to normal then just forget about it, otherwise if more unusual things happen I would go to thGP.

Swollen, you need to post this on the pregnancy board. But it's perfectly normal - though unpleasant! - and they will shrink after the baby is born. Wearing a maternity pad will put pressure on the vvs and ease the unpleasant 'falling out' feeling until then. Welcome to MN smile.

Agree with prettycandles. It might be worth keeping track of what's happening when over the next few months in case it doesn't happen again immediately but is odd again in future. It's always easier to explain stuff to GPs when you have the details in hand, esp if like me you forget the details almost immediately! You can definitely have a one-off wobble though. I have in the past with no obvious cause or after-effects.

Thanks girls - just gutted it's so early as going away for big wedding anniversary night in hotel and wanted to be period free (in fact planned whole thing mid cycle to ensure I was period free and now have period - grrrrr)

My periods have been all over the place (not quite literally!) for the past few years.

Was checked out and told that it's sort of a pre-menopause thing. Sorry if you're a spring chicken, and I'm insulting you!!!

hmmmn, can you have a menopause at 33? Part of me wouldn't mind really. My womb is finished with having babies and the earlier I get to avoid periods the better
