My periods are always random, painful, and heavy. Sometimes I will go 20 days between cycles, and others it's 30 days. I have friends who say they can pin it down to 1-2 days of when they will start. I can never do that! This month, I had my period 28 days after my last. Then, 14 days later, it came again! My period always last a minimum of 6 days, and sometimes 7! I bleed heavily throughout the entire time. I hear most girls say they only bleed heavy at the beginning, or either at the end. I've never heard anyone say they bleed heavy the entire time. I also have severe cramping throughout my entire period. I have not had a pap smear in 4 years, because I have no health insurance. This has been happening for about 2 years. Do you think this is normal?
