Question Posted Thursday August 16 2007, 10:22 am

ok. when i first started my period it use to last on average 5 days. and recently it has only been 2-3 days. is this bad? how long does yours usually last?
i havent had sex or anything like that so that wont be the cause. and im not on birth control. i havent changed anything either and this has been happening for about the last 5 periods.

If you arent having sex, no birth control, etc, then its one of two things.

1) Lifestyle change. More stress or less can cause this, eating or sleeping changes, etc. Different people react differently to stress and such, so a shorter period could be a result of more or less stress depending on you.

2) Age. Your body changes over time. Its possible that your body shortened its period just as part of your natural developmental process.

Well a normal period can last 3-7 days, like the person below me said. And if you have been active in sports and exercise and been drinking alot of water then this certainly plays a role on your pd. days on getting short. Exercise and drinking plenty of water is very healthy for you while you're on your period, and it makes it better for cramps too. Some girls get the idea of them being in a bad mood while on their period and eat more foods. Its healthy to stay active in sports or exercise while your on your period, it REALLY helps, trust me I have experienced it, plus I'm sure you don't want your period lasting that long, NOT any girl for that matter. So 2-3 days is good and still healthy. Hope I helped and story so long.

Don't worry, mine is 2-3 days long too! It's actually WAY better then having it for 5-7 days, haha, believe me you're fine. Be happy, you have a short lasting period! :)

oh dont worry, this is completely normal! 3-7 days is the normal range for any of them to go, so your doing alright. this happens to me especially during the summer or any time im in sports. getting out there and doing a lot of physical activity makes it go away this may be the cause for you. if not dont worry becuase your body might be evening out and two to three days will be the normal time span for yours
-lucky you!!
hope i helped
