The 4 months we've been TTC I've had shorter cycles n very light periods, now this past 5th cycle was longer w heavy bleeding. Stress? Miscarriage?
Normal variation: It is not unusual to see some variation in cycles, nor is it unexpected to have a heavier period following several light periods. I've seen many conceptions occur when the couple had given up trying, so stress is certainly a factor though it is very hard to measure. Heavier bleeding after a longer cycle could be a miscarriage, but is difficult to prove and has no practical meaning. Keep trying! ...Read more

If you have been bleeding heavier and more frequently you are also at risk of having a low blood count (anemia). Best to see an obgyn who can run some labs and imaging tests to figure out what's going on. Best of luck. ...Read more

Puzzling picture.: If you're just recently pregnant, then this light spotting could be implantation bleeding. Otherwise, this pattern does not fit any specific category. If there is no itching nor odor, this most likely is not yeast / bacterial infection. If you have been more stressed than usual (physically or mentally), then that could be throwing off your cycle. Watch for continued irregularity vs normalization. ...Read more
