  • The period I did just get was kinda like that though, off and on for a couple days.

  • I was still having weird periods after 5 months, but I would just call your doc and check. And if you think you might have a chance of being pregnant... Take a test, thats the first thing they will do at your apt. :O) GOOD LUCK!
