User:mean after 28 or 29 days
User:its happens
User:every month

Doctor:since you have your periods regularly, it is ok
User:to have periods for less days
User:yes, every month I get around the same date
User:one day plus or minus..
User:hope its OK
Doctor:But, I would advise , you to get checked for conditions like anemia, (low hemoglobin levels) , as this could be a cause
Doctor:other issues like hypothyroidism also need to be ruled out
User:I have got my hemo test done two months back, its was 13
User:thyroid test was also normal for me, have got that done as well
User:and untra sound too
Doctor:so all tests were normal
User:yes it was all normal
Doctor:In such a situation, there should be no reason to worry
User:ok, hope in future I would not have any problems in conceiving
Doctor:no of days a woman bleeds, is cyclical, and it is ideal for a specific woman
Doctor:and sincE ALL YOUR tests are within normal , i do not expect such issues in your case
User:also someone told me that if periods are for lesser days, then I might enter under menopause in my mid 30"s only
Doctor:you need not worry about them
Doctor:No, thats not right
Doctor:early menopause, means, you do not get cycles regularly
Doctor:the no of days you bleed, does not matter
User:ok also, should I repeat any of the test's
User:as per you
User:may in one or two months time
Doctor:yes, you can repeat it in 3 months time
User:pls suggest
Doctor:in case it is normal, there is no need to repeat it more often
Doctor:just once a year is fine
User:so , as per u I should repeate Heamoglobin, & throid test
User:any other thing which I should get it checked
Doctor:No not needed
Doctor:You are fine
Doctor:yes , i mean to repeat the tests - Hb and Thyroid
Doctor:not other tests
User:I also take lot of stress most of the times, so does that effect the cycle's as well
Doctor:less likely
Doctor:since your cycles are regular, it is ok
Doctor:but stress is likely, to be a cause in your case, as your cycles are regular
User:2 days + or - in the cycles should be considered OK
User:coz that happens in my case
User:but it happens every month,
Doctor:yes, the no of days you bleed do not matter
Doctor:as you have the cycles regularly
