Anyone experienced a very light period!?

Postby Meggiemooo » Tue Dec 12, 2017 6:56 am

Hi,
My first post after lurking for ages. I’ve been TTC for a few months, but this cycle I have a very odd period. It came right on time cd29, but it’s super light. It’s more than spotting, and the blood seem fresh (sorry tmi) but no where near my normal flow. I usually use super or super plus tampons and it’s always 5 days long, but I hardly filled a regular tampon in 8 hours and it seems to have stopped after 2 days. Any ideas what might cause this? Im new to all this so second guessing everything! I have never temped before but did for the last 2 days whilst I was bleeding and got 96.8 and 96.5.
Thanks for your help!!!

No I haven’t, because from everything I read it said breakthrough or implantation was usually brown or pink. And I was too nervous in case it is just an odd period. But I think it might be a good idea.

A friend of mine bled a bit at about 5 - 7 weeks preggy - rest of the pregnancy was ok. Can’t remember why she said she bled, but yeah, she thought it was her period, but it wasn’t!

Fingers crossed :)

Sometimes I would get short periods. They say it's a normal period if it lasts 3 days with the bright red bleeding. Test! That's your best bet to figure out what it is!

Thanks. Tested this afternoon after holding pee for 4 hours. It was very clearly negative, so I’m going to ask my doc what’s up with the weird 2 day period this cycle.
Thanks for the responses!
