Is a 12 day period with heavy bleeding normal?

In brief: No. Stressful times?

Sometimes events in our lives or the lives of our family and friends can affect our cycles.
Perhaps seasonal events, like at school, can make a couple of periods irregular. If there is no history of stressful events but one of unusual bleeding, then a call for appointment with obgyn might be considered. At this point starting a "diary" showing date, events, time and amount of bleeding helps doctor.

In brief: Probably not

Occasionally a woman will have an a heavy or extended cycle.
If this continues it tells me you may have a hormonal imbalance. Go to a4m.Com and use the physician locator to find a functional medicine doc in your area who can help you evaluate your hormones and then get them back into balance for your long term health!
