Shorter period days
My friend used to have a 4-5 day period but since about 2 yrs back she is been having a 3 day period. And she was quite stressed about it when she realized this because she thinks she might have a problem later during pregnancy. Is this normal or her concerns justified?

It's a sign of adrenal weakness which leads to progesterone deficiency. It's definitely not normal.

Her concerns are NOT justified. having periods regular or irregular is ok, and the same hold true whether the cycle is of 3 or 5 days. Heavy bleeding at periods is BAD, and one must get treated for it. In some young persons stress of exams, of growing up, and some medicines, and pcod can cause menses to be irregular and varied in bleeding. So Do NOT Worry. If she is concerned, she can visit a near by gynecologist and have herself evaluated for her hormone status and get assured

Hi there....normal menstrual bleeding can be between 3 to 5 days. If there is too much reduced menstrual bleeding, it could be due to hormonal imbalance caused by drugs, pcod, fibromas, stress. Then she can consult a gynaecologist for further clinical evaluation and treatment.
