Lighter Than Usual Period

    Q: Could I be pregnant even though I had a light period?

    A: Yes, you could be pregnant and you should do a pregnancy test to make sure. Some pregnant women report a lighter period than usual. Other pregnant women may have some spotting and think the menstrual period is about to start. If you experience any form of abnormal period, and you think you could be pregnant then you should do a pregnancy test. Only the pregnancy test will tell you for sure.
