Less bleeding during periods

01/26/2009

Question:

Hi, I`m 25 yrs old.I get my menstrual cycle regularly without any delays each 28-30 days. But now a days i notice very less bleeding during mensus ie., only for 2 , 2 1/2 days. Is this any abnormality. I`m married and will this affect in any way to conceive? What are the tests and treatments that i can undergo? I`m worried, please help me out with the problem.

Answer:

As long as your cycles are of regular frequency, the amount of bleeding isn't as concerning. This shouldn't effect your ability to conceive. Irregular cycles are more concerning regarding their effect on pregnancy. The absence of bleeding can also signal problems with ovulation that could make conceiving problematic. This assumes you are not taking anything that could effect your cycles like hormonal contraception.
