I just recently started having really light periods (last month and this month, they came on the dot on the same date but only lasted 1-2 days.) 2nd day was a stretch as is… not so much a light period, but more like a heavy spotting.
I am trying to get a date with my doc and I haven’t yet. I was originally going to the gyno. I mentioned this in my other post incase some of you remember that (abortion related). I think now has to wait so I can see/talk to my doc first about this NEW problem.
After the abortion exactly 2 years and 2 months ago from today, (it was surgical after 5 weeks of pregnancy), I started taking BC pills. I didn’t take them right away. I waited 1.5 months after the tragic experience. I took them religiously for 9 months. I had an a strong instinctive feeling to stop. (The abor. doc had initially recommended it to be taken for 1 year.) My periods during those times were only spotting and very, VERY light. (as expected on B.C.) After I stopped taking BC, periods returned to the normal 5-7 days within 2-3 cycles.
Fast forward 2 years later now…. Starting in August I made a big lifestyle change of eating healthier. (It was not a HUUUUGE change as I wasn’t eating badly to begin with. More so just portion control and not eating late. I had started this earliier this year in March/April time and stopped in May. Then picked it up in August). No change in periods during March till September.
Periods came as expected and occassionally 1-3 days late. In September they were an entire week late! (Thereby f**kin up my vacation ENTIRELY!) Anyway, they lasted approximately 3-4 days with spotting for another couple of days.
October periods = 1.5-2 days.
November periods = 1.5-2 days.
I cannot imagine this is any indication of anything! When I search around, I get completely different answers. Either I am pregnant or I am not going to get pregnant. Both are two opposites of the spectrum!
I don’t think i am pregnant because sex has been very few and far between. (I made another post about ‘pain during sex’ ). Also, we use condoms religiously and even still pull out with the condoms!
Have, or are any of you ladies experiencing this? Were you able to have kids with this? Or were you pregnant and didn’t know it? I am so confused! I haven’t taken the at home preggo test yet. I am just coming off my periods now. So looks like I have to wait now until the next cycle….
I started working out (at home, P90x) last month. So AFTER my October period. Could this add to lighter flow? This can then explain the November flow but October should’ve been fine.
I just turned 29 a couple of months ago. Could it be possible that my biological clock is ticking too damn fast? I don’t have any weight problems. I am 5 ft (only! ) and weigh 112 lbs. (Though some of this is muscle weight from working out over a month.) I was 123 in August when I started making dietary changes and sleeping longer….
I am so sorry this post is such a mish-mash of information! This is exactly how I feel in my head! I hope you can make sense out of this. I just poured my heart out!
