It varies. I have been cursed with like 7 day heavy periods, but thats my normal. Also things can affect how long you bleed, like when I went on the birth control patch for a continuous 3 months (because of my bad periods), when i got off it and started bleeding, it was horrible, i had to miss school cuz of the cramps too. Also, my mom said it can change as you get older, get short, longer, lighter or heavier. all part of the glorious gift god gave women....
