    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.
