Period started, few days early. Lasted 6 days and seemed normal as usual. Finished Tues a.m. But late last night I started bleeding again, and not just spotting, like normal period - sorry if tmi - got a bit of a fright, but it seems to have tailed off this afternoon now though. But tum and back quite sore.

Never happened before, is it a sign of a hormonal prob? Anyone have any experience of this? Tried to phone practice nurse but she has left for the day. Am worrying --starting to catastrophise-- about cervical cancer!

Many thanks for any advice

Thanks, that is somewhat reassuring. I did see a thread re this, but it was to do with period stopping after one day and restarting, and I thought my situation was different to that as mine had finished, but I suppose it all amounts to the same thing.

Just glad it happened as I was going to bed and not during the day when I was out and about in a pair of pale trousers!

If anyone has had similar and has been told a reason why, I would be glad to hear, though maybe its just one one of these things, and will have to be on the look out next month.

I have always had this, period for 4 days then stops then starts again a day later for a day or so. So it's never worried me but I'm a great believer in following up if anything out of the ordinary happens so if it will put you mind at rest I would check it out with the doctor. Good luck.
