Hi Anon

Periods tend to average from 3 to 7 days but can sometimes be a day shorter or longer. They can also tone down a lot at 5 days or so and spotting can continue for another few days. If this is the case with you, it's normal but if you are bleeding heavily beyond 7 days, you should see a doctor to make sure your reproductive system is healthy.

I hope this helps and good luck!
