My periods was very light

I'm 16, my periods fairly regular except this last time. It came on time but was very light, basically brown and didn't fill a regular tampon even. I had been at camp and wasn't drinking very much and it was really hot out. Also I normally excercise a lot and hadn't been. Is this normal? I've been freaking out! I'm not on birth control and I haven't had sex.

Hi littleswimmer,

Sometimes a period can be lighter some months than others-- especially when there is a change in your environment and exercise habits. This is normal, next month your period should return to normal and may be a little heavier than usual since you had a light period this month.

Good Luck,
