Can you get pregnant if you barely get a Period?

I am 34 years old and for the last 4 years, my period has become lighter and lighter where now it lasts barely 1 day. My period do however come every 28-29 days. I have been trying to get pregnant, and have had no luck for the last year. My doctor has done no tests on me to figure out if there is a medical problem associated with my light period. My question is, can you get pregnant even though your period is barely there or are there other underlying issues to consider?

Welcome to ehealthforum

Change in the period flow is indicative of hormonal imbalance going in the body which may or may not be due to any underlying abnormality in the uterus or ovary.It is necessary to rule out the casue and resume normal periods as conceiving can be a issue if periods are not there.
You require a USG scan and hormonal Analysis to rule out the exact cause.
Consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take Care!
