What does it mean if you get your period like 4 or 5 days before each period? I am usually on the day or a day earlier but lately I have been off by 4 or 5 days...

Stress can either make you early or make you late.Also if you are living in a house with other woman, usually over time they tend to synchranize and that can throw you off schedule.K.------------------ kmottus###aol.com�When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won.

Beach,That has been happening to me lately. Altough everything else is normal. I also have found that it happens to me on alternated months, not two in a row.It is true what Kmottus says, when we were in the dorm all 8 of us got our periods the same week.

Are you around other women a lot? This may sound hokey, but I've heard that often when women spend a lot of time together (i.e. room-mates) their cycles will affect each other. Some women are stronger than others. My old room mate was always complaining that I was the stronger "Beta female" and my cycle was very controlling of hers.I have no idea how scientific this arguement is, but I've had a lot of female room-mates and this always seems to happen.KMottus?

I remember that during collge, most of the girls on my floor got their periods at the same time. You could always tell everyone else was in the same boat as you by the fullness of the "little boxes" in the bathroom stalls.
My roomate was the "alpha woman"--she was on the pill and I wasn't, so my cycle conformed to hers (as did most others on the floor).

I wish I was regular enough to get a cycle - even if it was someone elses!! I go anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks between periods. Good news is that they aren't as frequent as those that are regularly every 4 weeks. Bad news is that it's hard to predict when. One nurse once freaked out when I went in for a regular GYN appointment and said it had been about 5 weeks since my last period. Doctor asked if that was normal and said yup - had been like that forever. She said well then that's just normal for me.And I have noticed really bad stress can affect my frequency. Not as bad as when I was younger though.Nancy

This sounds a little different but I found that I have a change in my periods (a few days early or late) when the seasons change!------------------How long a minute is, depends on what side of the bathroom door you're on...

Probably just a horomonal thing. Are you on Birth Control?As for the other issue, I have a friend, and all the girls in her office are on the same cycle, too. Weird, but it happens.

I like it when I go into a doctors office and they ask me when my last period was and I say 6 years ago. They look at me really funny, then I tell them that I had a hysterectomy. LOL

I read a study that said when women spend a lot of time together, their pheromones cause their periods to synchronize. They studied this by taking a test group of women who didn't live together, and every day had these women rub pheromones of the other women under their noses. They soon synchronized.
