1 Bump

Short Period

I have always had a 7-8 day heavy period since I was 14. But last week it was only 3 days long and very light. I am not pregnant that I know of (took an AHPT).
Any ideas on what can cause this?
I have not been any more stressed than usual. I am at a loss.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

  • You may not feel more stressed and actually be stressed. Being under weight can do it and i think even dehydration.

  • As you get older your period changes. Mine used to always be super heavy and long. As I have aged, it has decreased.
