Early menstration


Q: Is it normal to start your menstrual cycle early? Im currently using the evra patch and im on my 3rd patchof the month now, i am not to take it off until saturday but the day i put it on i started experiencing heavy discharge and now 3 days later its full on bleeding not enough for a pad but a liner just incase. First it was clear discharge with streaks of blood now its blood with little tiny clots. Isthis normal? I have 2 kids one 6 the other is 1, i did just have a pap test last week also but ive never gotten my period early because of that, any answers would be appreciated!
