Periods vary: It is absolutely normal to have a 3 day period. Women vary quite a bit in the heaviness and length of flow. It is also just as likely that your own period will fluctuate over time as well. However, if your period suddenly stops or your bleeding becomes extremely heavy you should see your ob/gyn

Wrong: Sorry for providing wrong answer because of-interpretation. Therefore I am editing it. The ovulation day varies with the length of the cycle and the days after ovulation are mostly constant, at 14 days.
