Hi, Having 5 days of spotting is normal because it's telling you that you should be getting your period soon. Starting a light period as a start then being heavy is also normal.

Hi Anon

Sometimes our period can take several days to start properly - even out of the blue. It sounds like you are having a regular period, but a bit different to what you may be used to.
