2 day period for the last couple of months

I have been experiencing light and short periods my whole life, but always regular 28 days. I took birth control for about 3 years and have stopped using the nuva ring over a year ago. The last year was crazy, too short, too long, from 1 day bleeding to 5 days. Since a couple months now I am finally back to my 28 day cycle, however it is only like a day of normal flow and then more like spotting for 1-2 days.

I had a leep done last august and have no more cancer cells, thank god! But I still think this is not really normal. does anyone have any ideas about this? I'd like to hear them, thanx.

May I ask what a leep is, and how it is preformed?

or wait, maybe its a loop? idk, its when they take a loop kinda thing heat it and scrape away the cancer cells from the walls inside...

The reason I asked is because any burning or scraping of the uterine wall an cause scarring.   This could cause your periods to be abnormal.  If i were you, I would ask your doctor to preform a saline induced sonohystogram to rulenthis out.  This may be difficult to accomplish, but i would push until they did one.  The scaring I am talking about is called ashermans, please research it, and see if you fit the profile.

Your welcome.  I just think you need to start by ruling things out, ie: scarring, then you can start figuring out what is going on.  I am here for you if you need someone to bounce things off of : )

Hi,

your short period could also be your normal.

I have always had very short periods.  Just 1 heavy day and then only a couple of days of very light / spotting.

I have 1 daughter, and after several miscarriages am pregnant again.

no, this is not normal for me, my period was always at least 3 days light-medium, and then a day of spotting, now its a day short, that cant be right...

i just want a little girl that looks like me, to much to ask?
