    13 day cycle

    So until about a month and a half ago, I was getting my period about every 24 days. But my last few periods have come after only 13 days. They're lighter than my regular periods, with less painful cramps, and I have no other symptoms. I only use non-hormonal birth control, and I'm 22.

    So, should I be worried? My best guess is that it was caused by stress, and I've been trying to reduce that.

    Since you are still very young, yes I would ask your OBGYN. Could be related to the pill you are taking. Is it a new pill? Seriously, call the doc today to find out. Every 13 days is too much and you may need another birth control pill.

    I'm not taking a pill. Non-hormonal means no pills. I use condoms and a diaphragm.

    Ok then definitely call your doc TODAY. Something is going on with your hormones to trigger a period every so often. You need to get checked.

    Re: 13 day cycle

    Stress is one thing that can throw your period off. Another is if you are around other women a lot- such as if you just started working in an office with other women, or got a new roommate. Women's cycles, for some reason, will alter themselves so that they get them at the same time. I think this only happens when you are around someone a lot but it happens.
