First, don't apologize. Periods and female health are natural and really need to be de-stigmatized.

Second, it really depends on what a normal monthly flow is for you. If you've always been light, then it's not irregular. If it's a recent change, there may be something up, but it easily could be other factors like stress. Freaken stress screws up everything. But just in case, you should definitely talk to your PCP or gynecologist.

Especially if you're planning to start babying up in the near future. We all know stress can impact that so it's good to chat with your doctor, get some answers, and hopefully some peace of mind. Good luck!

That was how mine were all my life until I hit ~35 and they became long and heavy. I thought that it was just my age but turned out to be massive uterine fibroids. I also never had cramps or pms.

Did you get the fibroids removed???

Please consult with your physician.

The answer to this question is highly dependent on your age, genetics and health history.

Second SA1.

Congrats on moving towards the planning stage. Talk to your obgyn. They are really helpful making sure you get prenatal vitamins (even before you start trying), can do a full check up and answer any questions you have. You can look up your fertility window with online calculators if you know how regular you are.

Yeah, sometimes I have just 2 really heavy days that appears and disappears all at once , others a more moderate 3-5 days that tapers in to start and fades out at the end. My GYN said it’s totally normal. I conceived naturally with no issues within just a few months of not actively trying to conceive. I’m 33 and had been on BC for 16 years prior to 2019.

Nope you’re good. Periods change and as long as you’re getting them regularly it’s no problem. I had this same concern. I used to get them for 5 days but then they changed to 3 days with a day or two of spotting. Totally normal.

Same. Was diagnosed with pcos a few years ago (pretty sure not related to blood flow lol) but even after the diagnosis, no heavy flow. 1st day horrible cramps, 2nd day heavy flow, 3rd day spotting, 4th day poof gone lol
