How Does a Light Period Affect Fertility? Q&A with Dr. Gleaton

Is it normal to have a light period? How does a light period affect fertility?

Period timing, amount, and frequency can vary throughout the course of a person’s reproductive life cycle. If this cycle pattern represents a change from your typical cycles, discuss this with your ob/gyn provider. They may recommend testing your egg quality and other hormonal levels.

I’m almost 34, TTC since December and my period just suddenly stopped. What to do?

Many factors can contribute to an absent cycle, including pregnancy so ensure you’ve taken more than one pregnancy test. If your cycle has stopped for greater than two months, schedule an appointment with your provider. Evaluation may include lab testing and pelvic ultrasound assessment to help determine a potential cause.
