I'm 36 and my husband and I have recently started to try for our first baby. On the 2nd of November I started my period but it wasn't normal. It was very light ( didn't need to water anything)no cramping just felt like my lower abdomen was being stretched very wide and period only lasted 3 days. I started my period again on the 26th of November but it still isn't normal. It's a little heavier this time but it's bright red and has long stringy stuff mixed in. Still not as heavy as what I usually bleed. I only had some cramping yesterday but only on my right side and it went away after taking midol.
