What is the average schedule for a period?

By this, I mean what happens on day 1, day 2, etc.

My periods usually have a heavy first and second day and the third day is medium and 4th day is light and 5th day is spotting.

But this period is heavier than I've ever had it before but I'm sure its normal since I am just starting and it is irregular. I am just curious about the norm.

    Every woman is different, but what you said sounds about normal. Heavy the first couple of days, then it lightens up, and by the end of your period it is light.

    Some months may be heavier than others when you first get your period. Also, you may skip a period every so often as your body tries to regulate your period.

    There really isn't a norm. Average is about 4-6 days. You sound like what's to be about average from what I've discussed with my friends.

  • It varies depending on the person. Usually from 4 to 7 days for most of us.

    Source(s): 5 days for me
