How long should ones period last?

Is it normally that after your period ends you get some spotting a day or so after?

I get really bad cramps and I feel dizzy, since I have a physical coming up two days from now, should I bring this up?

Hi there,

A normal period can last anywhere from a few days to about 7 days.

Yup, it's normal. Your discharge might carry some residue of your period from the previous days.

It's definitely a good idea to bring that up with your doctor. Really bad cramps can be a sign of something more serious, so it's a smart move to get it checked out.

Here's a handy article of menstruation: On the Rag: A Guide to Menstruation

If you've got more questions after that, feel free to post them in this thread.
