Hi Doctors,

I am 30 years old. My period has always been accurate or regular (after 1 month/30days). However, recently it became irregular. My last period was on 11 March 2020, but yesterday 28 March 2020, it suddenly came after 18 days only. I am a bit worried as it never happened before in my life. Would appreciate if doc can advise what should I do on this? Thanks doc and stay safe!
