Short cycle and periods?

I am 20 years old and am wondering if my cycle is normal. It is averages only 21 days (ranging 18-24) from the start of one period to the start of the next. My period usually only lasts 2-3 days (one day heavy, one or two light), and I don't have cramping or any other adverse symptoms. It's certainly nothing to complain about, but I'm wondering if it's normal or if I should ask my doctor about it. I'm not on hormonal birth control.

Re: Short cycle and periods?

Every womans period is different. Some have very short ones like you, where as mine is 35 days long. If your periods have always been like this, I wouldn't be too concerned. If they were longer or shorter and changed, then maybe you should see a doctor. But if it has always been like that, i'd say its normal. Your aunt flow just can't stand being away for too long
At the end of the game.. The king and the pawn go into the same box.
