Scanty Periods

How many days a menstrual period lasts, how much is the flow during the duration of the periods-it all varies according to individual patterns. As long as a woman has her periods every month, regularly, the cycle being anywhere between 26-35 days, it is normal. The bleeding may be for two, three or even six to seven days. The rhythm and duration of the periods is person-specific, depending upon a woman's individual hormone settings. Sometimes the cycle may change after a D&C (dilatation and curretage) or childbirth. The amount of bleeding depends on the thickness of the lining shed, and the thickness of the lining depends on hormone balance, diet, exercise, emotions, stress, etc. As long as a cycle is regular, it is not considered abnormal or scanty.
