    Hi

    My periods are really short, always have been so seem normal to me but is it? I usually only have 3 days, which is great for me.

    Mine are normally 7-8 days, sometimes longer. I think I got unlucky when they were handing out the periods.

    I'm the same, mine are always 3 days which suits me perfectly! When I was a teenager I used to get really heavy 7 day periods so I'm sooooo glad they are short and light now.

    I had really heavy, week-long periods as a teenager! I have awful cramps (runs in the family) and was on birth-control pretty early to alleviate the cramps and shorten my period, which worked. I haven't been on BCP for years now and although I'm still plagued with painful cramps, it's much shorter and not nearly as heavy as before.

    Now my periods are about 4 days long: 1 day of spotting/light day, followed by a heavy day, then another light/spotting day.

    About six or seven days, although the last couple days are pretty light. Used to be more like ten when I was a teenager. I'm glad there are other ladies on here that are the same. I always feel abnormal. :)
