    I’m on the pill and mine are about 3-4 days long and really light the whole time.  Before going on the pill, they were 7-9 days long and really, really, heavy for at least half that time.

    I’m going to HATE going off the pill when we start TTC if my periods go back to that! 🙁

    Im off the pill and they last about 6 days. Although 3 of those are usually very light almost spotting.

    6-8 days, considering what you consider AF.

    Want the TMI?

    1 light day + 2 heavy days + 2 1/2 light days + 2 1/2 days spotting.

    It’s like clockwork, especially since I went on the pill.

    I don’t think thats really unusual. Before I was on BC it was like 2 or 3 days and on BC it’s a day or so.

    I’m on the pill and mine lasts 4 days. Before I started the pill it was at least 9 days long, every time…horrible. Now, 1 day of spotting, 1 light day, 1 “heavy” day, 1 day of spotting. I have heavy in quotes because my heavy day now = my lightest day before i was on the pill….soooo thankful for that. I totally agree with FutureKMM on the whole TTC at some point thing if AF goes back to what it was before…

    @floridabride12: Yeah – my heaviest days on the pill were definitely light days for my period pre-pill.

    I have PCOS and I have it for six days….. I’m not on BC at all.  But i jump around, this month i’m two days late … which sucked.   And my doctor asks me … when i go in there … Well what did you hit web md for and what did it tell you that you have?  (so embarassing) lol.

    7 days pretty much every month. No BC, and I wish mine was shorter!

    @hedgeknits:  I could’ve written the same thing!  And ever since my tubal ligation, it’s a lot heavier.  🙁

    On the pill they’re about 4 days.  When I was off the pill last year and since middle school they were about 6 days.
