Hello everyone! I am 30 years old and my husband and I have been TTC since March of this year. I am wondering if we have been unsuccessful so far due to my periods suddenly becoming lighter.
Some background...my periods have always been like clockwork since junior high. CD1 starts without warning, very heavy bright red bleeding for about 36 hours before it lightens and then waxes and wanes throughout the next 4-5 days.
Last November, 6 months before my 30th birthday, CD1 started with very light brownish spotting for about 12 hours and then much scantier than usual flow throughout the next few days. I thought it was a weird fluke and even wondered briefly if I was pregnant, but then forgot about it, since we weren't TTC at that point.
However, the same thing has happened every single month since then.
Does anyone know what might be causing this? I haven't experienced any major changes in stress levels, weight loss or gain, diet, etc. My bloodwork (CBC, BMP, glucose, thyroid) is all normal!
Thanks in advance.
