That's all folks!: Just like Porky Pig says in the cartoon, that was all the period that you were going to get this month as long as you are negative for pregnancy. Sometimes, Mother Nature just doesn't make enough endometrium to provide a full period for every cycle.

Not your periods: Both menses sound normal being moody is likely related to other circumstances (husband, kids, job, money ?).

A member asked:

I am suspecting I might be pregnant but I am having no discharge and I am usually very heavy with discharge... Is pregnancy a possibility ?

Always a possibility: Pregnancy is always a possibility in a woman in her fertile years. Simple urine pregnancy tests are available at any drugstore. A woman can also go to a primary care doctor or an ob-gyn doctor for testing. If the test is positive, the woman needs to set up routine appointments with the doctor that will be providing her prenatal care. If the test is negative, the doctor can look for other problems.

A 22-year-old female asked:

When spotting very little, is it considered a menstral cycle?

Hypomenorrhea: Very light menstrual flow can be normal. Having regular cycles that aren't too heavy or painful is more important than concern about enough flow. A sudden change in menstrual flow can signal a problem, like a hormonal change or pregnancy.

HPT: Most women take a pregnancy test when they miss their period or thereafter. However some early pregnancy tests may be able to detect pregnancy up to six days prior to a missed period.
