Hi! I have pretty short periods since I came off birth control last year, usually 3 days with a little spotting pre/post and I’m currently 13 weeks pregnant. 

Good luck to you, hope you find your answers!

My situation is sounds quite similar. BCP from age 16 to 26 (with a few stops here and there). I have always had very light/short periods, and they got even lighter/shorter. I stopped BCP a year and half ago to let my cycle ‘regulate’ and I got my period naturally right away. My cycles are now between 26 and 33 days (they average out to 30 days according to my app), and still very light: 2 days of light bleeding and 1-1.5 days of spotting afterwords. Light enough that if I forgot to pack tampons, I could make do with just tissue, even on the first day. The only thing that’s different is that I don’t even get menstrual cramps. I got pregnant on our second try.

Mine have always been 3-4 days (3-2 days bleed then a day of spotting) both on and off the pill – more cramps on day 1 without it was the only noticeable difference. My cycle is 28 – 30 days, and came back straight away after nearly 20yrs on the pill from age 16 – 36 with a few short breaks here and there. Got pregnant relatively easily on our first cycle trying, now 34 weeks with baby #1.

Wishing you the best of luck, hopefully you get some answers!!
