Question:

hi...good morning....i am experiencing a problem with my period this month....every month during first 2 days of my period my bleeding used to be very heavy...but this month during first 2 days my bleeding is very very less...does it mean that i am pregnant?or is there any other reason for that problem?

Answer:

Menstrual periods can vary quite a bit and be considered normal. A light period does not mean that you are pregnant. However, if you are concerned about being pregnant, you may want to take a pregnancy test. Thank you for visiting NetWellness.
