Not necessarily: As long as the timing between periods is similar and not off in time by less than a week, I doubt there is a problem. My guess is that you normally has heavy menstrual periods and have been blessed with a shorter and perhaps lighter one this time ! If you have more questions, please discuss with your OB if choice
