Hi,
Thanks for the query.

The possibilities are:
-Short menstrual cycle. First cycle was of 25 days length and second one with 23 days length.
-If you had unprotected intercourse around the time of ovulation, then there is possibility of pregnancy.
Though the symptoms you mentioned are suggesting pregnancy, we cannot confirm the pregnancy just by symptoms because these can be seen in other conditions also.
So you once go for urine test or blood test for pregnancy which will rule out the possibility.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

I did the urine test and it was negative. Am confused doc. I also had in protected sexual intercourse.
So, what is the consequence of being pregnant and menstrating?

Hi,

As you had protected intercourse and as the pregnancy test is negative there is very less possibility for pregnancy.
The woman you is having bleeding in pregnancy, may continue the pregnancy after stopping of bleeding or she may abort.
So if you still have any doubt of being pregnant better to consult gynecologist once and undergo blood test for pregnancy or ultrasound which will clarify the doubt.

Thanks doc, am happy. But is there any medication for short term menstruation?

Answered by Dr. Sree Gouri SR 3 hours later
Hi,
You are welcome. The normal length of the menstrual cycle can be taken as 28+/-7 days. According to this 21 days to 35 days duration can be taken as normal.
So according to this at present no need of any medication to you.
If the length of cycle further shortens you better consult gynecologist once.

Hi Doctor, it is been three months since I have a surgery to remove only the fibroids. After my first menstrual cycle I had 7 days of bleeding which I had to wear pads. It was not heavy, when I went to see my gynecologist he put me on birth control. I began taking it two days before my menstrual period. I can say I do not have my period, but I still have painful cramps. Why do you think because I am very concerned about that.

Hi doc. Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex on december 25 2013 at around 3am. I have menstruation on that day and we both know that he ejaculated inside me. So in december 25 at 1pm I took 4 nordette pills. And on december 26 at 1pm I drink it again. My menstruation became light. On december 29 i had blood and i guess its withdrawal bleeding cause its brownish in color.. and lasted for about 4 days. How can it will affect my menstruation cycle? Thankyou!
