Welcome to ehealthforum,
Lighter and shorter periods, abdominal cramps could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy especially if you have been sexually active after last normal periods (and if you are not on any other form of birth control measure). Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. If pregnancy is suspected, you should consider getting a serum/blood HCG test done to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
