Customer Question

Hi I am just recovering from gastroenteritis and today I am getting tender breasts. It is only 21 days since the start of my last period. My cycle is usually 31 days. Can gastroenteritis cause an early period?

Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.
Any factor that causes physical or mental stress can alter the menstrual cycle. If you have breast tenderness as a norm before your regular periods, then yes, your period could be coming early because of the gastroenteritis.
Let me know if you have other queries about this.
