I doubt you are pregnant. But, just to be safe, take a pregnancy test. it is normal to have occasional irregularities, even if you have a very regular cycle. There was one time when I was younger that I had two full periods in one month. nothing was wrong with me, and I wasn't pregnant. My hormones were off that month. All kinds of things, from stress to the foods you eat, can have an affect on your hormones.
