Have any of you fallen pregnant with particularly short periods of 2-3 days that were light?

Currently having this investigated 6 months after mc and my periods are lasting 2 days and used to be 4-5. Worried my lining isn't sufficient enough but I do still need to use tampons for them two days.

Everyone I ask who I know seem to have 5-7 day periods. Mine have never been that long. 5 days at most.

I had extremely short periods never longer than 3 days and I have one beautiful daughter and another on the way.. fell very quickly both times in fairness but .. my perilous became a lot shorter after I come off of my contraceptive.. I don't think 6 months in the grand scheme is really too long as most people i know have been try about a year before they worried! Try to relax and hopefully it will happen for you soon x

Sorry I missed the bit about mc, sorry to hear that as I say mine were extremely light and short, good luck x

Before I went on the depo contraceptive injection, my periods were around 5 days. After coming off it, my periods were noticeably lighter, lasting just 2-3 days.

I raised the same concerns with my GP and she told me flow has nothing to do with fertility and not to worry about it.

Before I got pregnant, I had a really light period lasting only 1.5 days. I got pregnant the next cycle, and I'm currently 14 weeks pregnant and baby is doing well so far.

Hope this helps reassure you a bit

I had 3 day long light periods and have fallen pregnant 4 times easily. 2 ended in miscarriage sadly but I don't think it was in anyway related.

I did. I have had 2 pregnancies, 2 daughters, thankfully no mc. My periods are 1-3 days, and light.

I hope you get some answers soon, wishing you luck.

Wow quite a few of you then. Clearly a light period doesn't always mean anything then. It's helped to put my mind at ease a bit. Thank you ladies

Yup before I had my third child my periods use to only last two days and pretty light.

I feel pregnant super easy with all three kids. Only since I turned thirty do they last 3 days sometimes occasionally four.
