Period question adult content

Normally I have normal periods lasting 5-7 days. Most often 7. This time I started normally. It was an actual flow, not just spotting, and then it just stopped on day 3. It was like turning off a faucet it was so weird, but I'm still cramping a little and I've been off my period for almost 3 days. Has anyone else experienced this? This has never happened to me before.

  • It's fairly common. Stress can change your cycle, or sometimes nothing in particular but it changes anyway.

  • Yeah that's true. Is it weird that I'm still cramping though? I guess that's the main thing that's bothering me.

  • It's common. Same happened to me the older I got. It reduced down to average of 3-4 days. I'm not complaining though :) If your hair, nails, and skin seem normal, then I wouldn't worry about it. However, some people on birth control do have problems with hormone balance.

  • I'm not on birth control. It's the cramping that's weird to me. Did that happen to you?

  • have you thought about getting on birth control? it might help it become regular. also if you had more blood then normal thats prob why it stop early.
