Really Short Period

Hey, I'm new. I had a question I was hoping someone could help me with. Me and my husband have been ttc our 2nd. This is the 2nd cycle. I was expecting AF on 13th...didn't show up until 19. Then it was only 3 days long! It's normally 5 or 6. I usually feel it coming, and didn't. I didn't even feel any cramping until a few hours later. It seemed lighter than normal, too. The only symptom I have had is extreme fatigue and more frequent headaches.

I take it you gust got off BC since you’re in your 2nd cycle and that could be the reason for the short periods. I know my periods have definitely gotten shorter since I got off BCP in Dec, 05. It used to be 5-6 days (3 days of heavy flow then the rest spotting) now it’s more like 1-2 days heavy and the rest spotting..…Good luck and Baby Dust!!

Actually, I got off BC in March, and I've had two periods since then. They've both been normal. I took a HPT the day after AF was due, and negative. This just is weird b/c it's never been this short.

Well, when I said just got off I didn’t really mean today :-) I figured it would be March since you’re in your 2nd cycle. But anyway, I just think your body is going through some hormonal changes due to stopping BC…that’s all.

It's not uncommon for a woman to have a shorter cycle from time to time,it dont always mean pregnancy,but sometimes it dose.Best of luck.

Thanks Rhonda. I had heard some different things on it. You're always hoping that it means pregnancy when you're ttc. It's just never happened to me before. I'll keep my hopes up for next month!

A three day period is quite a substantial one, even if they're normally longer. My period is normally 5 days long, and ever since I quit the pill last October, they've been no longer than 2 days and several times less than 1 day!

Thanks for the help. I was really wondering. Only because that has never happened to me before. I've always had pretty long periods. I wasn't on the pill for very long..only like 3 months, then I quit. And my periods since that have been normal except for this one. Thank you!

Don't worry. Your body will regulate itself soon enough. It doesn't really matter if it was 3 months on the pill or 3 years on the pill. Such extreme changes in hormones will throw your body out of whack. In fact, I'd say that your body is probably even going through more due to such a short stint on birth control. It barely had any time to get settled before you threw it out of whack again.

Thanks for the input. You've really been a lot of help. I got a lot of answers. Thanks.
