My periods have always been 3 to 4 days but if yours are normally longer it couldnt hurt to test. Good luck.

I say it never hurts to try but every now and then I get short periods so it could be just that. Good luck!!

My periods were always 7 days before I had Robert, but now they are 4-5 days which isn't a big difference, but I'm not complaining. It might just be a short period, but testing won't hurt. Let us know what you decide to do.

Mine are always 3-4 days, although they are heavier since I had Maddie.

Before I had Riley I used to have very long periods. Once I had her my periods changed drastically. They were shorter (around 3 days instead of 7) and they weren't painful. This could be one of those post baby changes happening in your body also.

Good luck and let us know what you decide and how things turn out.

My periods only last three days - every time. I think that this just means you can start trying sooner. Good luck.

It could be that this is just a short period, every now and then I have a very short one as well. If there is any doubt though, it never hurts to test.
