My period starts, stops and then comes back a day later. Normal?

My period will start off light. Get heavy on day two then usually by the third or fourth day it will stop completely anywhere between 13- 36 hours and then come back for another day or two. Does this happen to anybody else?

  • that is how mine have been since i was 14! i am 40 now and they are still like that, when i am not pregnant or breastfeeding. even my heavy is not that heavy. anyhow, it is normal for me. if this is a change for you, you may want to investigate why.
