For the past couple of months I have been getting brown spotting a week prior to my period. Not enough for a tampon but definitely old blood looking when I would wipe. I made a doctor appointment and went in last week. My doctor ordered me to have a ultrasound to see what was going on. That is scheduled for next week since we needed to wait until my period is done. I got my period this last Sunday morning. It lasted one day. The prior days before I had the brown spotting that would be on and off. Is it normal to sometimes have a one day period? I have never had that before. My period usually last 3 days on average of full red blood and then spot after a little. I dont know if this could be due to stress because my stress level feels to be the same all the time. I did get blood work done the Thursday before me period to test for pregnancy and all my hormone levels. Everything came back normal and I was not pregnant. Should I consider testing again? Would it have been too early to detect a pregnancy in my blood that Thursday? I guess I overall want to know if a one day period is ok sometimes?
