My periods last longer than my friend's. Is this normal?

Your period, or the time when you bleed in your menstrual cycle, is usually three to seven days long. These differences can be due to hormone levels, diet, environmental factors, genetics or other reasons. One woman's period can be very different from another and still be normal. However, if your period is longer than seven days, or becoming irregular, or if you feel you are bleeding so much that you feel weak, light-headed or dizzy during your period, you should go see a doctor to make sure everything is OK.
