I'm really scratching my head on this one. I've always had 5 day bleeds every 30 days. There were normally pretty heavy the first 2 days then became lighter. I had HORRIBLE cramps that would make me cry and diarrhea.

The last 2 cycles was 29 days, and this one 28, both very light (only change tampon 3 times a day and never full, and bleeds last only 2 days, with some light spotting on the 3rd. It's great that the cramps are not as bad, and I'm not bleeding like I'm about to die, but I'm worried about fertility.

Idea as to why this is happening? This started right after my 28th birthday.

Hmm...I have no idea? Mine used to be heavier, 6-7 days, now for the past few yrs they've always been 5 days.

As you get older I think everything lightens up a bit because you have less hormones….

But that quick? Just 3 months ago it was 5 days of hell.

I think I'm going to make an apt with my ob in the morning. I'm due for my pap anyway.

Interesting.. I'm 28 now and a few months back mine changed too. I used to bleed 5-6 days and then all the sudden it went to 3 days, and lighter. The first month it happened I thought I might've been pregnant since it was sooo different for me. Guess my body just changed a bit.

It's always good to get things checked out if your worried though. I plan to make an apt in the new year as well.
