Check a test: There are many things that can cause your period to be late but, if you have been having unprotected sex, the first thing to do is check a pregnancy test and repeat it in 3-5 days if it is negative. Some medications including contraceptives can cause this too. If the tests are negative, see your PCP or Gyn for a complete history, exam, and appropriate testing to find the cause. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

My period is super light and came three days early. No unprotected sex in months, and even then it was timed to be on my "off" days.

My period is super light and came three days early. No unprotected sex in months, and even then it was timed to be on my "off" days.

Happens sometimes: Many women have occasional variation of their mucus discharge, some spotting between periods, a heavier period, a lighter period, a longer or shorter period, or even a missed period. Having one or two of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean there is a medical problem, but a visit to one’s primary care or Ob-Gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. ...Read more

Plan b side effect: That is the plan b altering your period. It can make early or late, light or heavy bleeding. Why you think you could be pregnant? You are having your period. Having period means no pregnancy. If you are in doubt you can take a pregnancy test. ...Read more

If this is..: If this is something new then it could certainly be related to pregnancy. Get a home based test for confirmation.

What can I do if my period was super light and only 3 days when its normally 5-7. Is this normal?

What can I do if my period was super light and only 3 days when its normally 5-7. Is this normal?

Possible reasons: The main reason for light periods is a change in hormone levels. Causes for what seems to be a light period can include: implantation bleeding in early pregnancy, thyroid problems, eating disorders, excessive exercise, initial periods for a girl, use of an intrauterine device, oral contraceptives & perimenopause. ...Read more

I went on the pill 9 months ago, now my period's been super light the past 2 months, is this normal or could I be pregnant, I've had 2 neg. Tests?

I went on the pill 9 months ago, now my period's been super light the past 2 months, is this normal or could I be pregnant, I've had 2 neg. Tests?

When in doubt: Just check pregnancy test. And if you are still not bleeding normally and first pregnancy test was negative, check it again in 1 week. More than likely now that your body is accustomed to that pill, it may respond to it "normally" that way from now on. So you should not worry. If you must, visit a GYN or family physician for further consultation. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

I've had unprotected sex for two weeks in now im on my period but its super light with big blood clots in no cramps could I be pregnant?

Very unlikely: If are having menstrual bleeding with clots, after sex, you are not pregnant.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I lost my virginity we used a condom and my period after tht was super light. I'm very worried that im may be pregnant.

I lost my virginity we used a condom and my period after tht was super light. I'm very worried that im may be pregnant.

Reasonable to worry: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. Life is full of surprises, so couples must always be prepared to raise a child. ...Read more

Is it bad to go from lazy to super active in a short period of time?

Is it bad to go from lazy to super active in a short period of time?

Take it slow.: It would not be wise to embark on an intensive exercise regimen right from being sedentary. You will be able to tolerate such an intense regimen in the future, but you have to build up your strength and endurance slowly. Start with light weight-training and short cardio sessions, for example, and add weight and time as your tolerance builds. ...Read more

Its period day 3, and im going through super tampons in 1 hr and im normally light. Is this normal?

Possibly: If this is the only time it has happened it is probably nothing to worry about. Could you have become pregnant this cycle?, are you on blood " thinners? ". If the bleeding becomes "intense" and /or you feel dizzy or faint, contact your doctor or be seen in er or an urgent care center. ...Read more

I'm 29 and was wondering why a woman's period would go from super heavy her whole life to this month being light and pink instead of dark red?

I'm 29 and was wondering why a woman's period would go from super heavy her whole life to this month being light and pink instead of dark red?

Hormonal changes: I wouldn't question a good thing, but sometimes a shift in hormones based upon changes in diet/weight/stress/lifestyle can affect the way your uterine lining develops and sheds. Having a lighter period would not be as concerning as missing a period altogether. Keep track of what happens next month with a menstrual calendar. ...Read more
