Normally my period lasts 7-8 days, this time it only lasted 3 and a half days. It was heavy and then just completely stopped. Is this normal?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Possibly

Women experience variations in their menstrual cycle and flow all the time, due to hormonal fluctuations caused by things like illness or stress.
Are you always regular? Was your period at the exact same time as usual? Was the blood clotted? Have you taken a pregnancy test, if this has never happened during your cycle before? That would be the 1st thing i would do. See your doc for further symptom.
