A 48-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

I'm in my 40s and suddenly have a very light period. I'm usually very heavy. History of Fibroids and cycle is now 21-25 days long. What is going on?

Probably ok: Period flow can vary month to month, reflecting how much growth of the uterine lining occurred the preceding month. It will probably normalize the following month. With fibroids, I would be more concerned about heavier periods, so do t worry about this one.
