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.
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.

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. [ phatdopelove's advice column | Ask phatdopelove A Question ]

hope i helped
