DEALING WITH UNPREDICTABLE PERIODS: I BLED SO MUCH I THOUGHT I HAD A MISCARRIAGE

My period is normally like clockwork, but last month I was a week late and I had cramps, which I usually never have. I bled extremely heavily for three days. I couldn’t get out of bed the first day at all. I’ve been trying to get pregnant and I think I might have had a miscarriage. Could it be?

If this woman was under stress of some sort, anxiety might have caused the lateness of her period. During this delay her uterine lining continued to develop. When menstruation finally began, her flow was unusually heavy because by then the sloughed-off endometrium was much thicker and more vascular than it would have been if she had had her period on time.
Since this woman was trying to conceive, there is, of course, a possibility that she was suffering a miscarriage. Her period was a week late. A conception which became defective—perhaps the fertilized egg did not implant itself properly in the womb—might have taken place. Women who are completely in tune with their systems can often sense whether they are pregnant. If this woman knows her body, then she probably knows what happened.
