2 day period??

Hi everyone! I went off of the pill in January for health reasons and got a normal period as soon as I stopped taking the pills. Then 42 days later I got another period that was normal. By normal I mean, 5-6 days, light in the beginning and little heavier in the middle and then light again towards the end. Now I just finished my period again, this time my cycle length was 36 days and it was extremely light and only lasted two days. Does this sound normal? I am not really concerned, its just weird for my periods to be that way. Thanks in advance!

Re: 2 day period??

Since stopping the pill in June, all of my periods have been very light. I've run across lots of women who experience light periods after stopping the pill. I think gradually they get heavier for most women as their hormones start to balance out. In the beginning, I was lucky to need tampons 1 day, it was mostly pantyliners for spotting. They have gotten a little longer in that I now need tampons 2-3 days (though light tampons) and then just pantyliners. I think this can be normal for coming off the pill. I think it can be an indication of a thin uterine lining (which could be an issue when trying to conceive).
