Symptoms Of Light Periods
Have light periods, bright red and only when I get to the toilet. Happened the last 3 periods. Had BC sex (used properly- no symptoms of pregs). Help?

Sometimes if you are underweight or over worked or over stressed periods can actually disappear. Your periods do not have to produce any minimal amount of blood to be normal or for you to be healthy. Most women appreciate having light periods once they are confident there is no problem. ...Read more
