my menses do lasts for 5days, but for months now it took a different pattern. heavy for the first two days, and d 3rd and 4th day, light stains or no stains at all. then on the 5th day, it just resumes again, and could be heavy. And even lasts till 6th day with stains.is this break and resume thing normal?
in addition please, I only have 20days interval within periods, is it OK? as I m trying to conceive now

Hi, Anon.

Having a regular cycle means that the interval between periods is consistent. For many women, it’s usually 28 days, but depending on the individual woman, can range from every 20 to every 35 days. As for the stop and resume in flow, the uterine lining doesn't always separate at a steady pace, you can have a lighter day and then have a heavier one near the end. As long as your period lasts 3-7 days or so, the day-to-day variations in flow are normal and can change. Of course, if you are still concerned about it, speak to your doctor.
