In brief: Check preg test

When a woman normally has heavy painful periods, is trying to get pregnant, and the periods change to very light it is possible she is pregnant, so check a pregnancy test.
If the pregnancy test is negative, something might be off in the hormones, perhaps due to thyroid, stress, losing or gaining weight, for instance. It is worth checking with a doctor.
