User avatar It is very common to have times when your period is not on schedule. I wouldn't worry too much unless you think you might be pregnant. If you are sexually active and fertile, this could be an early sign of pregnancy.

There is no way to know when you can expect your next period since hormonal fluctuations are common and this can continue to cause irregularity. As you age, you will likely find more and more of this - even perimenopause which can occur a number of years before menopause.

Try not to worry because this is pretty normal.
