i was wondering how light is a light period flow? i think i have my period.
and i think its a light flow. this is my second day of this cycle. the other day(before day 1), i was spotting, then next day it started to come up more. ive been only using a pantyliner, and i dont need to change it throughout the day either. the only time i bleed is when i pee. it comes out like a regular period. usually my period is really heavy where i have to change pads every couple hours. but right now its not like that. anyone know whats going on with it? does it mean anything?

but the difference is.. i experienced having a very slimy clear liquid discharge with blood just before my period which is very light... which is very unusual compare to my regular menstruation.. if you get any info about this,, let me know too

I too have always had very heavy periods, however i also have very irregular periods.. going from 3-9 months!! I have had a few very light periods where you even wonder if it's worth using a pad. My doctor carried out tests and said it was perfectly normal, but i do seem to have a hormone imbalance. I have also spoken to friends who have all said they have had 'the phantom period' (as i call it!)!

My period normally starts off heavy, this month i was spotting and i could only see light blood when i wiped. then the next day i had red spots on my pad and now again its only very light. my cycle is usually 8 days.
does this mean i could be pregnant?
