After three heavy days of my period, it goes away. I think it’s over, but then it comes back for two more days. Why is this?
Don’t sweat it. Gynecologist Dr. Duncan Turner says irregular periods are normal during the first year or so after you first get your period. It’s also not uncommon to have a heavier flow toward the beginning of your cycle. But your period shouldn’t go longer than seven days.
Keep a calendar to record your periods, including how heavy or light the flow. Bring the calendar with you to your next doctor’s appointment, and talk to her about your irregular flow.
