Pregnancy

Menstrual cycle

05/06/2009

Question:

Can a menstrual cycle be only uterine lining only, without blood?

I have never had a menstrual cycle without blood before, and I just had one like that, it lasted my typical 5 day cycle, and I am trying to concieve, could I possibly be pregnant?

Answer:

Periods can normally range from dark brown to bright red.  The appearance of the bleeding during a period cannot predict if one is pregnant or not.
