  • Light/ short period

    Hey there. So last month my period was on time but it was very heavy and my breasts hurt more than normal and I have very bad cramping. It lasted the normal amt of days just really heavy the whole time. This month however, I had no breast pain, very little cramping, and after day 3 I just have some spotting. My periods normally are like clockwork and last 5 days every month. Should this be cause for concern?
    I have been having sex but he pulls out before.

  • You should take a home test just to be sure.

    • hey I am actually going through the same thing now. I had my normal period August 2nd for 5 days. I experience cramping, tender breasts, ext, like I normally do... I had unprotected sex this past week, and just got my period again unexpected on the 25th of August, (it came real early) but it was really lighter than normal, where I only wore a tampon the first day, and it wasn't even that heavy. I became very concerned. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative... I don't know what else this could mean.
