Why did i only have my period for three days?

I got my period early this month which isn't abnormal i have had it early before. But the weird thing that happened was i only had it for three days i usually have it for a week. I have been feeling sick most of the week tho'e like i am coming down with something.

If you are on the pill, that is normal. Some people take the pill to normalize their periods and to scale down the days to 3 or 4.

If you aren't, then there maybe hormonal changes that are affecting your period to scale down abnormally. It could be a factor or stress, late nights, less sleep, travel, strenuous activities, etc.

That's how it is for me at least. I'm no doctor, but I watch my period and observe changes when they happen.

hey anna.... are you on birth control, or did you switch birth control.. there is nothing really abnormal getting your menstral for 3 days.. i got mine for 3 days since the begining, and when i got my tubes tied then it went to a day and a half.. i loved it.. don't worry but just to clear things up and take some of the worry from you talk to your gyn... stress can also add to a change in your menstral... good luck girl.
