Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had been sexually active after your last normal period, then chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. The shorter and lighter periods, absent periods, spotting could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for a thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, further investigations would be needed to look for any other underlying cause for your absent periods. Get started on appropriate treatment as indicated by examination and investigation results to help with getting periods back on track.
