The full menstrual cycle is usually counted from the first day you bleed(day 1), through when it's stopped, until you start to bleed again. So the day before the next bleed is the last day of your cycle.

Menstrual bleeding though can last for a little more than a week without there being anything wrong.

Why would menstrual cycle of five days go down to three?

Your menstrual cycle is the entire reproductive cycle including ovulation and menstruation - I think you mean menstruation of five days, not menstrual cycle.
