My period only lasted a day...why could this be?!?

I just had what I think is my period but it didn't even last a full day...for at least a year I have been on a very regular cycle so I am a bit worried...I have been looking online for possible answers which got me to take a home pregnancy test that came back negative...I should also add that me and my boyfriend have not been using protection for two months...what I want to know is if it is possible that I could be pregnant and took a test to early or could something else possibly be wrong?!?

Yes, false negative test results are possible.
If you used the test too early, there wouldn't be enough of the pregnancy hormone in your urine to be detected. I recommend getting a 2nd test if/when your period is around a week late & use that test with your first morning P. If present, the concentration of the pregnancy hormone is strongest then.
If the one-day period happened at a time when your period wasn't due, that's not unusual. Sometimes spotting happens between periods, typically not a cause for concern. If it happened when your period was due, it's possible you had a very short period, also not unusual & can happen for many reasons, same as missed periods. Stress, changes in weight, &/or your exercise routine, hormone fluctuations, dietary changes, illness, etc... can all cause you to miss a period, or have a very short one... BUT... since you've been having unprotected s ex...
Get another home test & use it with your 1st morning P. If it's negative again, chances are, you aren't pregnant. If you don't want a baby, please start using reliable protection. :)
