Q: heavy vaginal bleeding 1 day then light the next

I had heavy vaginal bleeding yesterday, and early this morning I had a bit of light bleeding over two hours and then nothing since 1 am. What could be the cause of this? I would be very grateful for any advice.

Hi there


When did you start your period?  Just yesterday?  Periods can really vary with flow and when they start and stop.  I am not sure I would worry too much, but if you are concerned, please give your gynecologist or doctor a call. 


Hang in there, and thank you for your question.

I started between 2345 and midnight on the 5th Dec,it was moderate/heavy that day then light from 2330 on the 6th - 0100 on the 7th then nothing since then until some light bleeding late this afternoon which I noticed at 1600 (9th Dec Aus time).


So,are you saying they can stop for a day half way through? Usually I bleed every day for 5 days. I have never had no bleeding for one day then more the next. What could cause that? Could it be caused by poor diet?


I have been very regular since I started at 16 (I am now 20) and have never been even a day early or late except for a few rare occasions when I have it twice a month in 21 day cycle.


My partner and I were hoping this was implantation bleeding as we are trying to get prregnant, and have been since January.


Thanks for your help.
