I started my period on December 5h, my period usually lasts 5 days then it quits. i missed a period in November, and started in december 5th. sometimes i bleed and sometimes i dont, its not heavy its light. But normally its light when it first starts and then gets heavier and when im getting close to becoming off my period it gets light and then im done. but i have never had this happen to me, i start my period then it stops. What does this mean?
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Previous missed periods along with shorter and lighter periods could be suggestive of pregnancy.
Look out for other symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy like fatigue, nausea, constipation, increased sleep, hunger and tiredness, mood changes, headaches, back pain, lower abdominal cramps, increased frequency of urine, breast soreness, nipple sensitivity, food cravings, dizziness. Visit your gynecologist for a thorough examination, blood HCG level test and ultrasound scan to confirm/rule out pregnancy.
