How many days does your period go for?

  1. Typically mine would run about 5-7 days 28 days in between. I also had terrible cramping for most of my life…like lay down with a heating pad on my stomach and back kinda pain. As I got older and had my kids that changed. Pain wasn’t nearly as bad from cramps and after tubal my period is a little wonky. I’ll bleed heavy for three days and it will stop for two days and then come back for four more days…kinda a pain to deal with. Wish I had my old cycle.

  2. Mine are 5-6 days on period, only the first day do I get period pain. My cycles last usually between 25-29 days. Not being on the pill makes them move around a little more so I've read. I try to go without pain killers but if it's a particularly bad one I'll take paracetamol.

  3. Mine were fine through my 20s, no cramps, lasted 5 days tops. Once I hit 30, my cramps got really debilitating and my period lasted 7-10 days and got really heavy. I started birth control to see if it would help, and it sort of did but my cramps were awful and the birth control (or so I had thought) made me gain 40 pounds in 2-3 months without changing my physical activity level or diet which isn't normal. I stopped the birth control to see if it would help me lose weight, as working out and counting calories didn't seem to do much of anything (though I LOOKED like I was losing weight). I ended up having a period that lasted 93 days. I got an intrauterine ultrasound that found a large mass inside of my uterus, which ended up being a fibroid. It was the cause of EVERYTHING, the weight gain, the changes to my cycle, etc (all caused by hormone issues).

  4. Mine are 5-7 days, terrible cramps on days 1 and 2, sometimes early day 3 too. I'm 32 now but it's always been like this

  5. I have a really heavy and painful 1st, 2nd and often 3rd day, then it stops on the 4th and then starts again for a 5th, 6th and 7th day. In the last 6 months the last 3 days have been hell too. I started seeing a new doctor, got an ultrasound and a referral to an OBGYN. Turns out I had a massive endometrioma cyst on my ovary and has to have surgery last week. Long story short, if you don’t feel like your concerns are being taken seriously find a new doctor who will listen.
