Period Fact #4 – How may days will I bleed?
This is fourth in the series about period facts, helping you help your daughter with what she needs to know about periods. Today’s question is ‘How many days will I bleed?’. A period can last anywhere from 3 to 5 days each month. For some girls, the first day or so is the heaviest and then the “flow” gets lighter – remember from Period Fact #3 that blood and tissue really come out in dribbles.
Every girl’s period is unique to her so your daughter will have to wait and see to know just how long her periods will last. She may even skip one which is normal too. Periods are often irregular for the first couple of years.
