How long does your period last since having children? I remember when my periods were only 3-5 days long and now it goes any where from 6-8 days. It drives me nuts at times. My cycle seems to stay on the 30 day cycle.

This is how mine goes and it drives me nuts:
Day 1through 4- spotting (barely)
Day 4 medium flow
Day 5 heavy flow
Day 6 medium to spotting
Day 7 through 8 spotting to none.

  • Mine is heavy for 7... I even have clots. Sometimes there are 8 or 9 days and the extra 2 are spotting. I used to have 4-5 day light periods.

  • I always had heavy flow and they would last about 7 days. And then I would skip a few months and they would last even longer and more cramps. (Nope, that wasn't a miscarriage...it was when I was still a virgin,.)
    I am so glad I have been through menopause and I don't have to worry about that anymore!!! Menopause is your friend,ladies!
