So my periods are a little irregular nornally, lasting anywhere from 35-45 days apart normally lasting about 7days. I had gone to my yearly obgyn appointment, period was still late at the time. About 4 days after I had a light period that lasted about 4 days compared to normal and since then I have been having the same sort of light period every 12-13 days. Could I be pregnant? Or something else be wrong? Really not sure.

Hello, and thank you for sharing your question.  I'd love to give you some information on the subject.

From what you describe, your body is has some hormonal imbalances.  Having a periods less than 28 days apart can be dangerous and I suggest that you see your doctor right away!

You could also be experiencing implantation bleeding.  This is bleeding that happens while you are pregnant. If you have had intercourse recently, then there is a possibility you could be pregnant.  To find out, you can take a pregnancy test.

For now however, you need to see your doctor in order to find out why you are having periods so often.  Do not let the doctor send you away without solutions because it is a serious issue.

Let us know if you have any more questions.
