    Need Help......Confused

    I seem to be having a little issue and need clarity. I normally have my period for 5 days but this time I only bled for 2 days nothing on day 3 and a very little to no spotting on day 4. Has this happen to anyone before? If so please feel free to share.
    lovebird79 responded:
    I have had odd periods before.
    I have had 2-day periods when mine are usually 5-7 days.

    However, it all depends on your situation...are you TTC?
    Have you had unprotected sex?
    Are you under stress, been sick, or increased your exercise?

    So many things can be factors in this scenario.

    If you think you might be pregnant, the best thing to do is wait for a missed period and take a test.
    Or, if you are really unsure than you can go to your doctor and have them check it out.

    Good luck.

    Hi LoveBird79! First I would like to say thank you very much for responding because normally no one does. I am ttc and yes I had unprotected sex with my husband. I was diagnosed with having fibriods in May but I have been detoxing and changed my diet. But I never had this happen before. I don't want to take a pg test and get a negative as I will be crushed. But I may have to just to know before I continue with my detoxification. When this happened to you were you pregnant?
