NO: If you mean that you bled heavily for 34 days, that is definitely not normal and you need to be seen ASAP. If on the other hand you mean that your menstrual cycle, the time from the start of one period to the start of the next, was 34 days that is in the normal range. hope this helps. ...Read more
