I missed a cycle currently on but it's lasting more than 5 days? Should I be nervous or is it just catching up?

Hi Anon

A normal period can last 7-8 days or even take a couple more after that to taper off completely so this may be the case with you. If it doesn't stop in another few days, contact your doctor in case you are bleeding for other reasons.
