Less bleeding during menstruation

05/04/2009

Question:

Hi, I am 29 yrs old. Recently got married.I am active too. I have less bleeding during my periods. They last only for 3 days maximum. Infact by 3rd there is no bleeding at all. Maximum blood goes while i urinate and less on my sanitary napkin. This has been the case with me from last 2-3 yrs.Is this a problem?

Answer:

The amount and duration of periods is extremely variable. Some women only bleed for 2 or 3 days, and some for 7. Your situation does not sound like a problem.
