    Default Short Periods

    Good Morning ladies,

    I'm just a little worried and what better way to vent and maybe get some advice than good ol' bubhub.

    *TMI Zone*
    So my cycle is generally about 26 days and pretty regular give or take a day or so and O happens around CD12-13 calculated by app and O pain. I was having between 3-4 days bleeding BUT my last two have been 1 day medium flow and 1 day blood stained cm. I haven't had my usual backache and very minimal cramping.

    September was my last proper period lasting from the 22nd to the 26th. On 30th September we had unprotected sex but I have had BFN since. October I had as above and thought maybe I was pregnant and O'd later and implanted later. But BFN.

    On 7th November we had unprotected sex again and period has been the same as October.

    Any of this sounded like there is something wrong or am I just worrying for nothing.

    Background - We are both 27 and have two girls aged 4 and 2 years.

    Thanks in advance

    Might not be what your problem is but in my case I had really short periods and it was because I wasn't ovulating.

    You could try opks (ovulation predictor kits).

    Lol that was a silly question wasn't it. Perhaps I should try that this cycle and see. Currently CD3 or 4 need to check app.

    lol that's ok. Other than that the only way to find out if you are ovulating is by getting blood tests done.
