Light "period" ??: Light bleeding can be due to pregnancy. First obtain a serum HCG test from your healthcare provider. It will probably be negative. At age 48, a woman's periods begin to be irregular, and "skipped periods" are more common. Ask your provider to also obtain a test for "FSH" which can be elevated at this stage of life.
