    I got my period just over a week early, which has NEVER happened before. Usually i'll get it a bit late if anything. Also i had cramping and my boobs were verry tender the week prior to getting it.
    And my hip area was a bit tender too. Any ideas?? :[

    This is so very normal. Periods vary, as do cramps and tenderness.

    I had bad cramping a week before actually getting it though, not just now i'm on it.

    Even if you are usually regular its normal for it to vary once in a while.
    After I started I was like clockwork for a couple of years, then all of a sudden it all suddenly changed for no reason. I started to only bleed for 3 days max and very lightly, then after another year of that it all changed again, and became irregular and unpredictable.

    Sometimes it just happens. Diet, stress, day to day life can all influence variations. Nothing to worry about.

    Have you been stressed recently? I know most people's periods are delayed when they're stressed, but I always come on when I get stressed (for example, D of E when I was up mountains praying I didn't get my period, I came only only 3 weeks after my last one!).

    If you spend a lot of time around female friends you will start to synch up with each other by hormones. When i was travelling was quite funny to see us all switch around and eventually a roomful of girls all on the periods. Meant some were late, others made early.

    but yeah, don't worry. I get my cramps the week before. Theres lots of variations

    Are you sure it's actually early? 'Cause getting the wrong week sounds like something I would do...

    Anyway, if it is early then that's a bit weird. I probably wouldn't worry. Just see if it's on time next month? If it is, then I'm sure everything's fine, and if it's early again then maybe your cycle just got shorter?

    Its normal don't panic
    I usually get pain in my hips a few days before my period, mines is rather unpredictable too. I had it for 2 years regulalrly then I didn't have it for 6 months, oh the joys of being a girl!

    At least you know your not pregnant if that makes you feel better? :dontknow:

    Yeah it's definitley early, 8 days early actually. I sort of felt like i hardly finished my last period and then i was cramping again! And my cycle is usualy long so it feels a bit weird since it's never happened before. Definitley not pregnant, no!

    Your ovulation just happened to occur earlier, your uterus is just having some fun with you.
