Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Short period is possible normally.

If you did not have adequate progesterone level, your period will be lighter than usual.

Pregnancy is very unlikely since you did have a period although short.

Not concerning.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
