OK, here's a question for you experts out there... I have PCOS and really irregular AFs. Haven't had AF for almost 3 months now, but I'm pretty sure I'm not PG, it's just my usual irregular cycles. Have been having acupuncture for the past week and drinking yukky Chinese herbs in an attempt to regulate my cycle. Wierd thing is, AF finally arrived today, or so I thought. All day long it's been very light, almost nothing, with mild cramps. Now I've got myself all excited that I am in fact PG (miraculously) and this might be implantation stage. My question is - are there any other reasons for having an unusually light period? Any ideas? Good luck to all you TTCers out there - hope you're putting those long winter nights to good use! :xox NN

Hopefully you are pregnant, but it could just be breakthrough bleeding, wihich can happen when you are a little low on progesterone (I think!)

Thanks Shorty, you're just the kind of expert I need! What's breakthrough bleeding? Is it still a proper period? I was told that I'm low on progesterone. Are you TTCing yourself? NN

Its not a proper period, no, but it is the first sign that you are low on progesterone. Better to go the docs and tell them. There is medication you can take that will stop it and boost your progesterone levels (can't remember name right now). I was ttc, now I'm expecting (early days though). I'm no expert, but uou could log on to fertilityfriend.com. You could find out a lot more there! Good luck! :xxx

oops typed reply to wrong one...ignore last entry Naughty I also have PCOS - on clomid and take all those yucky herbs... yup think it could be a low progesterone thing. Or could be a period without ovulation. Did you check online?
