how-long-does-menstrual-bleeding-normally-take1-How many days will menstrual bleeding last?

It is accepted to be normal if the bleeding is seen between 2 to 7 days. If the bleeding only 1 day or less the female should see a specialist as soon as possible.

The amounts of bleeding will vary according to every individual. It is also very difficult for it to be detected. Using more than 5 hygienic pads is considered to be too much. The sufficient amount that should be used during the day should be around 1 to 5. The most important detail in this condition is how long the menstrual bleeding will last.

Menstrual bleeding will occur approximately every 21 to 35 days. There is no rule pointing out that the bleeding should occur between 28 to 30 days. For this reason, seeing menstrual bleeding every 21 to 35 days is considered to be normal.

2-What should be the normal amount of blood seen during menstrual period?

To determine or measure the amount of bleeding is a bit difficult under normal conditions. The reason for this is every woman’s hygienic pad replacement frequency is different from another. If needed to speak generally using more than 3 to 5 pads during the day is considered heavy bleeding. This is not stated for the patients who are extremely uncomfortable of blood and change their hygienic pads even if there are only two drops. If only 1 pad is sufficient during the day, this is considered to be normal too. The important part is that it lasts for 2 days or more.

3-How frequently should menstrual bleeding occur?

Between the beginning of the female’s last period, there should be minimum 21 days up to 35 days maximum. Every female’s cycle will not occur every 28 or 30 days. A 21 or 35 day cycle, is considered to be normal. What needs to be noted at this point is the first day of the last period and the first day of the next period should be noted in order to calculate the menstrual cycle.

4-How should the menstrual cycle be during puberty?

It is considered to be extremely normal to have menstrual irregularities during puberty. After the first menstruation, within the first 2 to 3 years no intervention is required. For this reason, girls who have started seeing their first period will not need to panic about menstrual irregularities. However, if heavy bleeding occurs or the bleeding is severe, a specialist should be contacted as soon as possible. If the bleeding lasts more than 7 days because it is intense it can cause anaemia.
