Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

If you were pregnant, it would be related to conception during your last cycle. Given that you are now into the next cycle, IF you were pregnant a pregnancy test should be positive. You need to do a home test now to figure this out. Otherwise, assuming you are not pregnant, this might simply be related to a systemic illness, such as the flu.

I hope that this helps and good luck!

Profuse flow during the first day of your menstrual cycle mostly excludes the possibility of pregnancy. Also, it could be the reason for scanty menstruation in the following days. If you are still suspecting the possibility of pregnancy, you may take the blood test and follow it up with a trans-vaginal sonogram to be sure. Also, check if your hemoglobin levels are below normal as anemia can also cause the symptoms you have. Please consult your doctor for further suggestions. Take care.
