Period started but no cramps


I just started the new semester at school and have been working really hard and staying up really late. Today I just started bleeding like my period started. I am late on my period but I figured it was because I was stressed about school. I don't have any other symptoms like cramps or breast tenderness. I had protected sex with my boyfriend 6 weeks ago during my last period. Is something wrong? I am not sure why I am not cramping....... Help.

No that sounds pretty normal to me. Sometimes you don;t have to get cramps just because you are on your period. And yes stress can do alot of things to the body so be careful . And if you are really unsure you should make a docters appointment. you take care

It's normal to not get cramps sometimes, I don't often get cramps myself or breast tenderness, I would try to sleep more, sleep is very essential in women's health.. however since you used protection I don't think you're pregnant, you can always go to the doctors to be sure but it's sounds pretty normal to me :) Good luck

I think it's pretty common for our body to change when under more stress than usual. Plus, sleeping habits could change things as well.
I wouldn't stress over not getting cramps, I don't always get cramps when I have my period, and when I do, they are killer cramps. I would be happy not to get them.

That being said, everyone's body reacts differently. I remember working out at the gym so hard for a few months and got to the point where I barely got my period. I saw a doctor and it's because I stressed out my body too much. In your case, it could be the stress of school and the start of a new semester.

If you are really concern, I would check with a doctor for peace of mind!

no pain?

Sometimes it takes a while for the menstruation phase to settle down and cramping may be less frequent or not at all. There is really no cause for alarm; however, when in doubt a physician's advice is always the optimal option.

Cramps do not have to happen in order for a period to be considered normal, it's just that many women commonly and frequently experience them. I wouldn't worry too much. Be happy you don't have to put up with any extra pain! ;)

It's not necessary to get cramps when you are on your periods. Stress can cause changes to your body. When I'm under stress my periods are earlier than the date. It's common and there is nothing to worry about.

I agree with the others that there is nothing to worry about. I usually get cramps that are anywhere from give me 1 advil to get me an epidural. Every once and a while I will have a period with no cramps, those ones are so much nicer.
