Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Yes, chances of pregnancy are there since you had a light period. Take a pregnancy test and see. If this is negative, consult a gynecologist to rule out hypothyroidism, cervical dysplasia, cervical polyps, cervicitis (infection/inflammation of cervix), vaginitis (infection/inflammation of vagina), cervical and uterine cancer, uterine fibroids, hormonal imbalance as in polycystic disease of the ovary, use of blood thinners, genital ulcers, STDs and stress. Take care!
