  • You are not alone mine has always been 6-7 days. I think shorter periods are people on the pill, but even that never shortened mine.

  • I go 7 to 8 days, and some months I have 2 in 1 month. I have even bleed for 4 weeks straight before. Yes I am not normal.

  • Mine used to go that long but after the birth of my twins my hormones settled down and I have very regular, 5-6 day periods.

  • Mine use to be before I had kids every 28 days exactly and then I would bleed heavy the first 3 days then slow down, but it lasted 8 days once I had my first DD it was very light and lasted 6 days. Then when I had my 2nd DD 17 months ago now my periods are5 days every 24 or 28 days and it is heavy for 5 days straight.

  • I'm not on the pill or any kind of bc so about 7 days, unless and sorry for the TMI, I masterbate and orgasm it shortens it to 5. I read on another forum about it, tired it, and it really works!
