    Not worried, just confused I wonder if it will disappear again. Its only pretty light (i use a cup so can see). Its supposed to go for another day or so.

    Default Short AF?

    Anything else happening in ur life? like moving changed stressful job, family members causing giref? the weather we are having recently in qld? My friend had a period like that a few years ago. They were moving house. Then 2 weeks later had a proper period then 4 weeks later found out she was pregnant.

    Im moving interstate, but its all being handled by a company so all we do is get on the (prebooked) plane and fly to my mums house (Im in NT at the moment, moving back to QLD, but no where near the floodingect). Its not really stressful. Apart from that nothing is happening. Ive had worse stresses in my life (house fire, best friend passing away) and my AF has never been short, its always been at least 5days. I guess this is just an unexplainable random occurrence.

    Nothing else to add in terms of advice indigo, just that a similar thing happened to me last cycle with no explanation - normal is 5-6 days heavy, this time 2 days light with a little spotting either side.

    Hasn't happened before but it seems like it's a normal thing to happen occasionally, so just letting you know you're not alone in going WTFAF?!

    Current cycle has been wacky temp wise, AF is due in a few days so we'll see if it's any different - not really having anything in the way of symptoms so I'm not even planning to test this month.

    After my first m/c (i got utd 2nd cycle off the pill for 17years) my afs were about 1.5 to 2 days long. It freaked me out completely and after several more m/cs I saw my Ob. I ended up getting put on aspirin for a minor blood clotting thing - first cycle on it my lining was perfect (dont know about before but can only assume it was dodgy lol as 7/9 possible months I have got utd) and I ended up with dd. Before the pill I had severe menhorraghia and my periods lasted anything up to a month of incredibly heavy bleeding with associated horrid pain (right from the first one at 13 which kind of sucked) so having them sooo short freaked me out completely...

    Anyway (essay nearly done) since dd my lp was scary short so I took vit B6 to help with that (and it did) and once more, first month on aspirin and im utd again lol. Sooooo have you been to docs and had complete blood work done? Theres loads of really really random things that can screw all this stuff up xxxxx

    So, even weirder, last night i would class as spotting. Then when i went to redo my cup, it was empty again. This morning i have a bit of brown stained cm. I wouldnt even class it as spotting.
    My af went, medium, medium, light (for half a day), MIA, spotting, brown cm. So 6days long in the end, but really really weird.
