See a doctor: A normal menstrual cycle (from the first day of one period to the next period) lasts 21 to 35 days. It is normal to bleed for up to seven days. Bleeding in excess of seven days or bleeding in between the two periods is considered abnormal. Better see a doctor to get checked. S/he may want to do an ultrasound and/or a biopsy.
