I had light period on 13th march lasted just one day on/off done home pregnacy test says positive would you say that's a normal period?

Depends on the past: "normal" period means a period that is like all the other periods one has had over the past year. If this "light period" that lasts "just one day" with menstrual flow going "on/off" is just like all the other periods in the preceding months, then a woman could think this is a normal period. However, with a positive pregnancy test, the vaginal bleeding is not a real period even if it seemed normal. ...Read more

If you haven't had your period in 3 months does that mean pregnancy?

Could be: If you had unprotected sex, you could be pregnant. Do a home pregnancy test. There are other causes of missed periods. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
