My AF lasts a whole week now. It used to be about 3-5 days. The way mine used to be was 2 days of heavy followed by three days of light spotting. Now it usually starts with spotting and then like two to four days of heavy followed by three days of spotting. It is really irritating me how long it lasts. I have even been known to have it last as long as 10 or 11 days before. Not of heavy bleeding but spotting. It is driving me crazy!

My AF used to be 5 days before being on BCP and while I was on BCP. Once I stopped BCP it reduced down to 2-3 days and has become lighter - so I guess I got the good end of the stick there huh

My AF last 5-7 days. The second and thrid day I bleed SOOO heavy that I become anemic and I am in bed for those 2 days. My AF got heavier when I started having children.

NOW THAT I AM A LIL OLDER AF IS ONLY 3 DAYS MAX. AND THE WHOLE THREE DAYS IT IS EXTREMELY LIGHT ( I MEAN TO THE POINT I USE THE LOWEST ABSORBANCY TAMPONS AND IT WORKS ) IT WILL START AT NIGHT AND BE DONE WITH BY THE MORNING OF THE THIRD DAY. PEOPLE HAVE SAID THAT SIGNALS A PROBLEM BUT I DONT THINK SO I AM STILL GETTING AF LOL

On average 5 days (that includes the spotting after flow) but it is really light. My dr said I should have a normal heavier AF after the clomid if I ovulate. I am not really looking forward to that.

Mine is always longer than a week, usually 7 days of heavy bleeding and a few days of spotting. I hate it but I think it lasts so long because of my endo.

Ugh-mine is super long too. It used to be about 5 days with 1-2 of them being heavy. Since Will was born it's gotten out of control It is 10+ days including spotting. It's so annoying. I'm hoping that after the next baby it will be nice and short; probably wishful thinking, but that's ok!
