<p>My period came on time this month (Friday), and started after a brown spotting/discharge on the day it was due. It was a very heavy three days of bleeding with some heavy cramping. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Normally, my periods last 5-7 days straight.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>On Monday I had a very, very light spotting.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Tuesday and today I spotted once each in the afternoon and nothing other than that.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Could this be caused by some time of hormonal imbalance?</p>

<p>I'm not sure what causes it, but I've had that recently.  When I first came of BC earlier this year, my periods were five days, at least.  In the past three or four months, I have three days of bleeding, but TONS of spotting (pre and post AF).  I thought maybe it was just my body adjusting to being off the BC?  I'll definitely be checking back to see what the other ladies have to say! </p>

<p>My period is always 3 days. It used to be always 5 days. Its not a hormonal problem, 3 days is still well within the range of normal. It just randomly one month switched to 3 days... I think it went back and forth for a bit though between 3 and 5 before settling at 3. My doctor said to be thankful lol.</p>
