period this normal for you?

It may be just me, but I was wondering if I should mention this to my obgyn...after about 5 or 6 days of bleeding, I get one day of nothing...then start to bleed again for another 2 days or so. Is this normal? I didn't start doing this until I was in my 30's.

  • Yes I think it is! womens cycles seem to change as they get older and for me Ive gone thru exact same thing and Im 37,but ill go for a week and then stop completely but then 2 days later when I think Im completely done Ill start again for day or so and stop . Its fustrating I know ,but I think your normal. Something you might read up on is what they call " Iregular periods", thats more than likely what it is hun. Hope I helped.

  • happens to me, started happening after i had my first m/c when i was 20, its been 6 years and 2 kids later and it still happens. only now its worse, i'll bleed for like 2 days, then not bleed for like 2 or 3 days then bleed again for another 4. my doc said its just normal for me, since its a regular thing and there are no other problems.

  • This is how it was for me before i had my last child. But it was more like I'd bleed for 2 days then one day of nothing than bleed for just one more day. Of course it was so heavy if I moved it would soak my underwear.
