I had my period for a day, what does that mean?


Hmm…are you absolutely sure it was your actual period? Were you due for it? I’ve had breakthrough bleeding for a day or so once I started taking the pill but other than that, I’ve never had an actual period for just a day. I bet our health expert, Sandy, could help you out. See what she has to say.


It could mean any number of things or nothing at all.  An occasional irregular period is just part of life and happens to everyone occasionally. If you continue to notice significant changes over the next month or two and feel concerned you may want to visit your medical practitioner. If you are sexually active you may want to consider taking a pregnancy test.


Well… a regular period lasts anywhere from three to seven days. How long are your periods usually? What was the flow like? Did it start at the regular time? These are other questions to think about when your period comes and it is not what you are expecting or what is regular for you. Things that can upset a regular period schedule are changes in sleep habits, stress, poor diet, extreme exercise, hormonal imbalances, pelvic infections and pregnancy. It is not too unusual for an occasional change in your period regularity, but because it is important to know if there is a reason for the change in your bleeding, make an appointment with your healthcare provider to talk about what things might be causing the change in your cycle.
