Is my period normal or not??

I was just wondering if my period is normal or not... I started my period just before my 13th birthday and now I am 18 almost 19. My period has never been heavy and it doesn't last long either. It has always been light, the first day is the heaviest but it still isn't much at all. My period normal lasts three to five days, is that normal? Not to be gross or anything but today is my third day and I am barely bleeding at all and that is how my period normally is. I have my first gyn appointment next week, so should I discuss my period with her or is it normal??

Thanks!

Hi miss kitty,

It sounds as though that is perfectly normal for you, so long as your periods aren't coming too close together! We're all a little different in this area, some women flow *really* heavy, and some barely at all. But yeah, go ahead and mention it to your gyno (and she may ask you anyway).

Sounds perfectly normal to me, but if you're concerned ask your doc about it. And good luck with your first gyn appt!! Good for you!

All the best!
