Why was my period shorter than usual? My period is always on time. Come every month but the month of feb it camr but more shorter than usual. My period last at lest 5-7 days but the month of feb it was only a 2-3 day period.

The : The length of the period can change with fluctuations of hormones, which can be caused by various stressors on the body, and even by weight gain or loss. If it was very light or just spotting and you are at all concerned that you could be pregnant, then taking a pregnancy test would be reasonable. Some women after 45 start having shorter periods as well; i don't know your age. ...Read more

Cycle changes: menstrual cycles can vary with age, time, hormonal fluctuations and medical issues. I suggest keeping a mensrual diary marking the start and stop of your cycle, spotting or cramping. In most cases, your symtoms are normal variations;however, when in doubt, get a pelvic exam. ...Read more

Cycle variation: What you experience may just represent normal variation of the strength and length of your cycle, it's just that it hasn't happened to you before. There could be a permanent change in your cycle pattern going on, too. But if this is all there is, no reason to worry. ...Read more

Sex;feb 5, get my period feb 19-lighter and shorter than usual.March 22- short and light.this month no period so far am I pregnant?

Hard to guess: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

My girlfriend was ill last month and her period was shorter than usual 4 days instead of 7 is everything okay?

No other symptoms?: If there are no ill symptoms, it is fine for a woman's period to be off schedule, longer, or shorter, once in a while. Life is not exact. If there are recurring symptoms or worrisome symptoms (such as increased pain or signs of infection), a woman can see her primary care doctor or an ob-gyn doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more
