Hi FairyGirl

Thanks for your post!

If you have not been having unprotected sex, then you should have no concerns (if you have them regarding pregnancy). A period for only 24 hours would be considered very short but if it came when expected, then that was probably your period, albeit not one you usually have.

If you do not get your next period then take a pregnancy test (if you have been having unprotected sex). Please keep us updated!
