What are your menstrual cycles like?

Just wondering what "normal" is.

I am light the first day, medium to heavy the second day, very heavy the third day, medium the fourth day and light to nothing the last day. My cycle normally lasts for five days.

  • I may or may not spot(meaning only have it on the toilet paper) the day before. Day 1is heavy, day 2 is heavy to medium, day 3 is medium to light, day 4 is light to spotting.

    4 days every 28 days. Except for last month, it was a day early and lasted only 2.5 days and was medium to light. And, I spotted for 8 days ahead of it.

  • I don't have periods any more but before everything went awry, I was 2 days heavy, 2 days moderate and 2 days light.

  • I get mine every 22 or so days BOO. I spot for a week before (when I pee and when we have sex it's all brown and gross)
    BUT they only last 3-4 days day 2 is the worst and the last day is very light

    It has been the same for me since I had my son 14 yrs ago... before that they were about 24 days apart-lasted about 5 days and no spotting
