Confusing question: Is this what happens every time you have your period? On time, heavy and then 3 days later a light period? Or just this one time? Assuming this is something new, why else would you ask. Did you have intercourse? Could there be a small vaginal tear that bled? Could this be something else like a urinary tract infection that sometimes has bleeding? Your next period will likely be normal.
