Question

Light periods

So I’ve been having really light, short periods. The last 3 days and are barely more than spotting. Day 1 I usually have a 5-6 hour time Fran where I may need to change a panty liner every 2 hours, other than that- I could prep a sly got all day with just 1 panty line for those 3 days.

Has anyone ever experienced periods like this? Was it a fertility issue?

I messaged my Dr. about it, and am waiting for a response, but I was curious about other’s experiences. I’m hoping it’s not an issue, or that maybe it’s just low progesterone and an easy fix. After 6 months and only having a chemical pregnancy- I’m nervous. Just want to make sure I give myself the best possible odds! I am getting older and feeling the pressure of the ticking clock.

Hey girl! I’ve had the same thing happen to me over the last 7 cycles. My dr said it could be hormonal and didn’t seem to place too much emphasis on the likelihood it was related to fertility issues. I know that doesn’t help but I know it took me almost a year to conceive this time and I had the same thing - very light 3-4 day periods. Almost just spotting and no need for a tampon! Crazy. Hopefully you’ll get some answers but there is light at the end of the tunnel - I promise!

Thanks tiebreaker! That is just what my Dr. said as well! That is kind of what I figured, but I worry about every little thing since I want to be pregnant, like... yesterday
