Yes I am regular every 26-28 days. I have not been using protection but he has pulled out before he comes

Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 3 years ago.
Most likely your early period is due to your age, and the fact that women often miss ovulation in their later 30's. As long as you've usually had regular periods, it's generally nothing to worry about. Sometimes it might happen that you could bleed for extra time, and then you'd have to see your doctor for some progesterone pills to stop the bleeding.
I would give it some time and see whether your regular periods resume. There's a fairly good chance that they will. Best wishes.
