An_253860 posted:
had my period on sunday and it was super heavy i was vomiting and i had massive headaches and now that is wendsday my period ended i spotted in the morning and thats it it was over, now last month my period was on and off on and off and well there was a posibility i was pregnant, i took 5 pregnancy tests through the month and they were negative i also checked in to the hospital due to an asthma attack a week and a half ago and they made a pregnancy test and it was negative. is it normal for my period to last 3 days or could i be pregnant? thanks
georgiagail responded:
Yes; it's perfectly normal for a period to last only 3 days.

Why would you believe you are pregnant when at least six pregnancy tests have shown otherwise?

What it appears is that the first few days of your menstrual period were very heavy which shortened the number of days you normally bleed through this.
