Post Shorter Periods - Please Help

Hi, for the last 2 cycles my periods have lasted only 2 days. Usually
my period last 3 days (very light on the 3rd day and tiny spotting on
the 4th day). Should I be concerned & go to the doctor? My husband and
I are trying to conceive and dont want to take any chances if this is
going to be problem. I am 26 yrs old and not on any type of birth

So long as your periods came on time and there were no other problems you should be fine. Could you possibly be pregnant though and not know it? Many women have light periods the first few months of pregnancy.

Thank you for your reply mlgable. I guess pregnancy could be a possibility however I dont feel pregnant and dont have any symptoms of pregnancy. You are right about the last 2 periods being light to medium (definitely not heavy). Its all very weird.
