Period Stops But Comes Back Multiple Times

Hi. I got my period last month, and it was for 4 days. About two days after it ended, though, it came back for another day and then ended for that month. It came back in 27 days, so it is regular. It lasted 4 days, ended, but in two days, it came back for a day, went away, came back, and left again. When it ocmes back, it is kind of heavy and red, but only sometimes partially brown. Is this normal, and is there anything I can do about it?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

This is actually not all that uncommon. 

Some women get a days break at the end of their periods and then suddenly it comes back. It's almost like the body had forgotten it had some left. 

The brown blood is the old blood - again, the end of your period. 

There isn't much you can do about it other than perhaps go on the Pill in order to shorten your periods and regulate them better. 

You can talk to your doctor about those options .
