Hello Anonymous,

Don't worry. The flow may pick up in the next day or two.

Hello Anonymous,

I think you are experiencing normal irregularity in your menstrual cycle. This happens, especially in the first few years of menstruation.

Thank you but now I just got simple light bleeding and a few cramps but nothing heavy. It was so light it looked almost pink?

Hello Anonymous,

Have you had unprotected sex since the end of your last menstrual period? If you have, then there is a chance that you could be pregnant.
If you have not, you may be experiencing a slight irregularity in the length of your menstrual cycle and the start of your period. This is common among young girls who have not been menstruating for very long.

You are young. Are you really ready to be sexually active? It is very important that you protect yourself from becoming pregnant and contracting a sexually transmitted disease.
