    @MrsHoneyC:  I’m the opposite. On bcp, 2-3 days light flow. Now… 2-3 days heavy flow and then the never ending period. I think last month I was 8 days… UGH. the two months prior were like 7 days.

    I’m on a BCP, and my periods are usually four days long. Day one and day four are usually pretty light. Day two and three are heavier. I might have a little spotting on day five.

    I’m pleased! As a teen when I wasn’t on a BCP my periods were so irregular and would come every three months or so. And when they did it was often an 8 day ordeal.

    @MrsHoneyC:  Mine are the exact same way. When I was on bc they were 5-6 days but now are usually only about 3 days.

    @MrsHoneyC:  Mine were slightly longer on BC, but they were much lighter. Now they are a bt shorter, but oh man does AF whip my ass once a month.

    Wow am I jealous of all of you! Mine are 7 days, 5 of which are extremely heavy. BC made them much lighter and somewhat shorter but I had too many side effects so I don’t take anything hormonal anymore.

    Not on birth control and mine last 7 days. About 4 of them are extremely heavy. The last two days are weird because it seems to almost completely stop on day 6 and then on day 7 it comes back full force for a last sort of “hooray.”

    3 days now that I am on hormonal birth control. They used to be 7+ off birth control. Off birth control my periods were excruciating — cramps so bad I would often have to call out of work or stay home from college. Very heavy, very gross.

    Now they’re super light and I have cramps the first day and even then, they’re like an ache in the back. Nothing like they used to be.
