I forgot when my period is due, but I think it'll be due on the 15th. My last period was only two days long. It's usually 3-4 days, but it just stopped on the second day, and the third day I only had spotting. My symptoms beforehand were dizziness, mood swings, lightheadedness, fatigue like when you have a cold, nausea and feeling sensitive to smells. Am I pregnant or was that just part of my PMS?
Something unfortunate about PMS is sometimes it can feel a lot like early pregnancy! Since your last period was short and not what it normally is, I would take a pregnancy test now (granted, you haven't started your next period).
If the test comes back negative and your periods continue to be extra short, talk to your doctor to find out if you might have a treatable hormone or thyroid condition affecting your cycle.
