It is possible.  A short period is not something I've heard of as a sign of pregnancy- the period is the releasing of the tissue that the body has made to provide a place for the fertilized egg.  If there is burning when you use the bathroom, you may have a urinary tract infection.

 While it's certainly possible that you're pregnant, a shorter period isn't necessarily a sign that you are - a shorter period could just mean you didn't have as much tissue to slough off this time. If you're having digestive troubles, that could also shorten the duration of your flow. I suggest talking to your doctor and/or taking a test to determine whether or not you're pregnant or have an infection or something going on.

A lot of things can make your period shorter. Stress, diet (or lack of food if you're not eating), caffeine even. Wait a week and take a test. You may have to see your Dr. You could also not be eating enough to get a normal period.

Hi,

I would suggest taking a pregnancy test, but also talking to your doctor about the digestive issues you've been experiencing.

Good luck!

Nobody here can answer your question,  I would guess NO.  Take a test like everyone else!
