Just like five I have had a heavy period for years(since i was 11, i'm 29 now) but 2 months ago for oct and nov months my period has changed from 7 days to 4, its very light, not thick, and with lil to no clots in it.I was pregnant before and i did not know it cause i got my cycle every month like clock work with no symptoms,i had a miscarriage because of this. could i be pregnant or is this normal. i have never had cycles that did not have clots in them untill now should i be worried.and i am not on any type of birth control.

Christine you are actually incorrect. For both my children I bled for three days on implantation for my first, and 28 hrs for my second.

You can bleed while pregnant, I almost lost my youngest due to an imbalance in hormones. The test did come up pregnant. So I say if your bleeding and a test is negative your not pregnant..

Hi Anonymous,
Having a period, no matter how heavy or light it is, and as long as it lasts longer than a few hours, generally means you are not pregnant. Our cycles can change over time, and it is normal for that to happen to a certain extent. Here is an article about menstral cycles and what's considered normal:
What's Normal Menstruation?
Good luck and let us know if you have other questions.
