I just had a one day period- this is not normal for me. I typcially have 3-4 day period cycles. I've been off of birth control for over a year and have been extremely regular the whole time. My husband is a physician and said it's nothing to worry about, but I am worried because this is so odd for me. Any insight on what could cause this?
I had spotting for about 3 hours on Monday (it was browish with a little red). Then on Tuesday it looked completely normal for me (red). Neither day had any scent. I've been experiencing headaches for the past few days, but I think this is because I've dramatically cut back on caffeine.
If you are sexually active, pregnancy could be possible. I would make an appointment in two weeks time to have some blood drawn for a blood pregnancy test as this is most accurate. Other causes would include stress, thyroid or hormonal imbalance, infection, polyps, cysts, just to name a few. Along with the blood pregnancy test, I would have your hormone levels checked and possibly a pelvic exam with a pap if you haven't had one recently.
I am very please with your feedback. I was thinking that I could be pregnant, and my husband said that this can cause a "false pregnancy" where even your period cycle is altered. Could this also be the case?
