May be normal: This may just be a lighter than normal period. If your periods have been normal for the last few months and this one is on time then I would not worry about it. It could just be from a hormonal shift. If you are late with your period please check a pregnancy test. ...Read more

My period lasted one day, with very little blood. I've been stressed out lately with legal issues, could that have caused it? I had a yeast infection.

Yes: High stress situations can cause changes in menstrual cycles. Hormonal effects can disrupt normal menstrual functions. Observe for another month to see if menstrual cycles return to normal, and if not, then lab testing and sonogram may give answers to the abnormally short menstrual period. ...Read more

My period lasted 1 day and a half. It was a medium flow 3 days after i spotted a light pink. I'm not on birth control but i do use protection. ?

Irregular bleeding: It's not terribly abnormal for women to have some irregular bleeding throughout their menstruating years like you describe. I would just make sure that you're not pregnant with a home pregnancy test and if negative just chalk it up to your body's hormones having an out of whack month and hopefully next month will be more normal for you. If irregularity continues, see your doctor for options. ...Read more

My period lasted 1 day, it was light and no clots. it would usually last 5-7 days. I had a tubal 9 years ago so i doubt its pregnancy. Should i worry?

My period lasted 1 day, it was light and no clots. it would usually last 5-7 days. I had a tubal 9 years ago so i doubt its pregnancy. Should i worry?

Not necessarily: It's extremely rare, but tubal ligations can fail, even after several years. It's unlikely you're pregnant, but if you are concerned, check a pregnancy test. It will probably be negative, and if so, it just means there was a lighter this time. There may have been something with your ovulation. This should correct itself over the next month, but if not, see your GYN. ...Read more
