Some periods are different. There is no rhyme or reason for it. It just happens.

If you think something is wrong, it does not stop or it happens every month, it is time to see your doctor.

Best of luck!

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.Normal menstrual periods last3 to 7 days.Longer than normal periodscan occur because of stress, a hormone imbalance, pregnancy, infection, a thyroid condition, and othercauses. You should make an appointment with your health care provider.

Take care
