  • sometimes stress can cause your periods to be light and off.

  • When I have a period like that, where it seems more like heavy spotting than even a light period, it's because I didn't ovulate. If you're not charting, then you can't know for sure, but that's what it means for me.

  • You might have not ovulated last month. Its not "old" blood,its just so light it dries up on the way out.
