Okay, How Long Will My Period Last?

Most women have a regular menstrual cycle that comes approximately once every 28 days. When periods first begin, it could vary from three weeks to six weeks before the next. It could also be as short as 21 days or up to 40 days and may come at an irregular pattern. Eventually, the pattern will become more consistent.

If you want to be more confident, create a period calendar for yourself. Simply mark the first date when you get your period; and the date when your next period starts. Count the number of days between the two dates, and you’ll get the number of days for your menstrual cycle. Thus you can keep track for your next period and you can be prepared by having a StayFree® napkin with you on the days before your period, so you can avoid surprises.
