abnormal period, now cramping and back pain around day 18
i am a little concerned, This month my period was 1 day late, but was lighter than normal and only lasted 3, it usually lasts for 6 to 7 days , no clotting like i usually have. my period came on the 12th, and now i have cramping and lower back pain and my breasts are a little tingly and sore. I have also been tired, light headed and just feeling icky
i have been trying to conceive for a while now though.

Please tell me what this could be

It could have been an implantation bleed. Do a pregnancy test.
