Not normal: Vaginal bleeding for 15 consecutive days is not normal. It is best to seek evaluation with gyn. There are many etiologies depending on a variety of factors - pregnant vs. Not pregnant, ovulatory vs. Not ovulatory, endocrine abnormalities of thyroid, prolactin, androgens, etc. Thus, best to seek gyn evaluation.
