See your doctor: That is really too long to go unless you have birth control on board. If not, you should see your doctor to induce a period. That first period may be a bad one though, so talk to your doctor first.

See your doctor: The normal menstrual cycle varies in length from 21 to about 35 days, and last on average 3 to 5 days - over ten days of bleeding is clearly abnormal. You may have a problem such as infection, polyps, adenomyosis, fibroids, neoplasia, etc. After 1 and 1/2 months of bleeding, you should see your gynecologist for evaluation and treatment.

Irregular periods: Your question is a good one and has many answers from thyroid and hormone problems to pregnancy, even sometimes caused by medication. If you can, you should check another pregnancy test. If you have problems with weight gain, fatigue, feel cold or hot most of the time then you may need to have your hormones checked by your doctor.

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
