It can be: If this has been your norm for a number of years, it may very well be normal. If this is new for you, it may not be. If its new you could have some issues with ovulation, abnormal thyroid levels, hyperprolactinemia or even pregnancy. However, some women are lucky enough to have very light very short periods.
