Normally, a woman normally releases ONE egg per menstrual cycle. On occasion, a woman will release two, which would result in fraternal twins if both eggs are fertilized.

Is it normal to have a light period when your period is normally heavy?

Yes, most certainly, not every cycle is going to be exact everytime. It could possibly mean that your body didn't have as much to flush out as normally or it very well could mean that you are pregnant and your body hasn't ajusted to the change yet

Why don't boys get periods?

Why does your period stop after a day and start again?

As every woman's body and menstrual cycle is different, there is no straightforward answer to this question.

How do you get rid of menstrual odor?

Menstrual odour is most commonly due to the types of products that you use to manage menstrual flow - tampons are internal so prevent blood hitting the air to cause odour during use but they are bad for vaginal hygiene so can cause odour when you switch to pads, and commercial pads cause sweating as well as contain chemicals that cause bad odour in contact with bodily fluids.It's best to use hygienic menstrual products such as menstrual cups, softcups, or cloth menstrual pads over tampons or commercial pads and change often - pads have to be changed at least every 4-6 hours, but menstrual cups and softcups can be worn safely for up to 12 hours.Make sure to shower regularly and to 'freshen up' during the day use a little bottle or water or toilet paper moistened with water when you use the bathroom - DO NOT use vaginal wipes, baby wipes, or hand wipes on your vulva as this will cause bad odour as it will change vaginal pH and flora.
