See Gynecologist: Any menstrual cycle longer than 1 week is abnormal. See your gynecologist for evaluation. Depending on your age, there may be different investigations or interventions. (see my previous answer to another similar question). If you are soaking/bleeding through a pad an hour, you need to go to the er for evaluation.

A 18-year-old female asked:

Brown blood two weeks before my period. Whats wrong?

Probably nothing: Midcycle bleeding is not rare. Brown just means old blood that has been sitting in the back of the vagina for a long time. If this is not normal for you then it should correct itself over the next few days. Consider taking birth control for cycle regulation and contraception.

MANY causes: A 2 week period is abnormal and is usually caused by 'hormonal imbalances' . However, many uterine abnormalities may be the cause, including : uterine polyps, fibroids, adenomyosis and uterus cancer. So it best to get checked out by your gynecologist. You may need an biopsy. The treatment may include 'hormones/birth control pills' or a procedure 'hysteroscopy' and/or D&C (scraping of utrerus).

Dr. Carolyn Quist
Gynecology 36 years experience
Something: Menstrual cycles generally occur every 21-45 days apart, and anything more frequent than this indicates a medical problem that needs to be treated. There are many potential causes and only a thorough exam and evaluation will make the diagnosis. See your physician.
