Is this unusual? Day off during period?

Since having DTs a year ago i've noticed every period I've had since lasts at least 6 days but I always have a days break around day 4. Nothing there, no dishcarge at all, no smudges when wiping, nothing. Caught me out the first few times, thought I was having a hosrt period only for it to return with gusti the following day.

This never happened before I had children - does anyone else have this?

Yes I have it too. Had it before DC as well. It's a nightmare - as sometimes it is just a short period but I can never tell until 2 days later LOL

Me too - three days on, day off, back again just to fool you... Nice to think that I have a reproductive system with a sense of humour.

It happens to me a lot, can be a right pita!

Don't think it happened before I had children, wonder why that is?

Do you know what, I've been meaning to post about this for ages. YES - I get this too. Three to four days on, one day off and another two to three days on again. Bloody annoying (bloody...get it?? hohoho)

Ha ha yes - same here too and only began after ds!! and I was meaning to post about it too!

so it's not uncommon then... thought i was going a bit odd and am hugely worried about getting nearer the menopause... don't feel I've finished having babys yet!

Thank goodness! I thought my body was being weird to freak me out. I should be grateful for a day off in the middle that other women don't get I suppose smile

I've always had this too. Heavy, light, nothing, then spotting.

I have no idea what it is or what it means.

Wouldn't worry about it being th menopause wabbit, I'm only 26.

Seems it is pretty common then.

My periods always have been like that, 3 days moderate-light on, 1 full day off, few hours of light flow on day 5.

Thank you, I posted about this last week but didn't get any responses. I thought I truly was a freak
It is wierd though.
