My circles are usually fairly regular 28 day cycle and I usually bleed for 5 days, this month my period started 4 days early and I only bled for 2 days, has anyone else experienced similar and is this something I should be concerned about?

How old are you? Cycles can get shorter with age

This was the start of perimenopause for a couple of friends but obviously unlikely if you're very young.

I'm 32, maybe it is just that, was more concerned about it lasting for only 2 days rather than the fact that it came 4 days early

Any chance of pregnancy / implantation bleeding rather than actual periods?

We are TTC, I didn't experience implantation bleeding with my first 2 pregnancies so no experience, but from what I've read implantation is just light spotting? The two days I bled was bright red blood and was a slightly heavy bleed. I've been looking online and some sites suggests low progesterone which can impact ovulation? so getting myself in a panic now

Have you had covid jab recently that can affect it. Or had covid I had a really heavy period after having covid which is usual for me.

Ah yes, I had my booster less than 3 weeks ago so perhaps that's just messed with my cycle. Thank you all. I'm probably just overthinking it, I've got terrible healthy anxiety

Same happened to me after my vaccines and boosters - early and short period every time.
