Last month when I got my period it was only about 2 days long and it was really light. I've taken multiple hpts and they all came back negative. On the 28th day of my cycle (Wednesday), I got my period again just as expected. There was enough that I went through two pads. It wasn't a MUST to change them but obviously it was enough blood for me to want to. I also went through one tampon last night. It seemed like a normal period to start and now it's the second day and I'm finding it's tapering off again and it's really light. Is this normal? Most of my periods last about 3 days and the past two times they've been weird. I take my birth control on time and other than that the only thing that is different is I've been having vaginal bleeding after sex for the past few months (already made an apt with the gyn). Just wondering if that would have anything to do with my short period, or if I have anything to worry about? So far I've had my period for a good day and a half but it still seems kind of short to me!!

A difference of a day or two in the length of your cycle is pretty normal. So, going from 3 days to two with a withdrawal bleed isn't anything to worry about.

But you can certainly mention it to your OB/GYN when you go in.
