Why do I have a heavy period for like 2days then a whole 24hrs without anything just to start bleeding again for 4 more days?
Sometimes during a period, endometrial tissue (what sheds when you have your period) can block the flow out of the cervix. When this happens your period can slow down, lighten or even stop. Once that tissue has pushed through your period can start again and continue until it’s end. Generally, day to day variations in flow of your period are normal as long as your flow is approximately 3-7 days long.
