    About 3 days, but I’m on a bcp that shortens periods. Little to no cramping.

    In my teens and my 20s, it would take about 4 days. Now that I’m 30, they’re usually 2 days with a 3 day max and only 1 day of heavy bleeding. I talked to my gyno b/c I was afraid this was early menopause or something, but she said not to worry about it. They’ve also been late recently, but I think wedding stress has something to do with that. 🙂

    Heavy bleeding first day then pretty moderate to light. Sometimes before I even start my second pack of BCP it is gone already. Love it. I am 4 days MAX.

    I get about 3-4 days of heavy bleeding and then another 3-4 days until it’s completely gone. I’ve always been a heavy bleeder but over the last few years my cycles have been around 40 days so at least i get a decent break in between.

    I have really irregular periods and tend to have 30-37 day cycles, which makes me wonder if that’s why my periods are so dang heavy.

    First two days are super heavy flow. Day 3-5 is medium to light flow, and then days 6-7 are some light spotting.

    Seriously my period lasts a whole week. Super inconvenient.

    Off BCP for 3 years. (And had only taken it for about 6 months.)

    On BC– Two or three days of spotting every couple/few months

    Off of BC– Bizarre cycles lasting from 15 to 50 days period-to-period, periods from 6 to 10 days, occasionally twice a month!

    Yeah. Miserable.

    Mine last about 7 days (between the first spotting and the last spotting, the middle days are heaviest)…even though I’m on Nuvaring, which should shorten my periods. It’s very annoying.

    Mine last 3 days. The first day is miserable and heavy; the last two are really light. My cycles range anywhere from 27-29 days, so I guess I’m pretty average? I’ve been off the pill since July.

    5 days.  Day 1 and 2 are hell with every side effect possible.  Days 3-5 are regular days, feel fine, light flow.  No BCP here either.

    not on BC- 6 days. Days 1-2 and day 6 are usually fairly light. Days 3-4 are typically heavy and day 5 is normally moderate. Cycles are usually 26-29 days for me. 

    When I was on the Nuva Ring, my periods were normally only 4 days and were light each day.
