Menses: Normal menses is every 3-5 weeks (10-13 per year ) lasting 1-8 day (if longer thant10 days, see docotor) . Sometimes you may skip a period. Home pregnacy test is quite effective in telling if you are pregnant or ot. See you doctor if no menses after 8 weeks or if you have a positive pregnancy test. Normal amount of bleeding is about 1-5 pad per day, but if in doubt see doctor.
