I have always had very light periods, usually only 2 days- 3 of spotting at the most. So light I’ve never really been able to use a tampon. I have two healthy daughters that were each conceived on the first try with easy pregnancies/births. I am pregnant with my 3rd baby now. At least in my case having a light period was never a factor. Hope you are the same way!

daisy351:  It sounds like you’re perfectly normal to me.  The amount of blood flow doesn’t correlate to the sucess of ovulation.  The regularity and consistant positives are both great signs.  I wouldn’t stress about it until you know there’s even an issue because I doubt there will be one.

I could have written this! I was always like clockwork, went on the pill for a few years and then came off it in March. I went back to being regular but my last period was late (5ish days) and barely there (more like spotting and only lasted three days). I was convinced we’d have problems conceiving.

We conceived that same month and I’m now growing a little human 🙂 If you are concerned, a visit to your doctor can put your mind at ease, but I’d give TTC a shot first!

Mine go from mere spotting one month to an onslaught the next. Pretty normal I’d think.

From other similar boards I’ve read over the years there doesn’t seem to be a correlation between bleeding amount/length and fertility. I have long cycles with long, heavy bleeding and got pregnant first time. Plenty of short-cycled low-bleeding ladies have done the same. I wouldn’t worry 🙂

Mine have always been very regular but light like yours. Maybe 2 days of minimal flow? I’m pregnant now with my first, and got pregnant the first month of trying 🙂

I was worried about this when ttc also but I’m currently sitting waiting on baby to make its entrance! Mine were 3/4 daus but only really bled day 1 and the other days super light. 

 To add – mine were really heavy early on and got lighter around age 28. I was 32 when I conceived
