Can call her doctor: An unusually long menstrual period leads to excessive blood loss especially if beyond 10 days. One should contact her primary care doctor or Ob-Gyn doctor to ask when she should be seen, in case she needs medication to stop the excessively long period. If she has no doctor, and has continued menstrual flow, she can visit an urgent care clinic and might need a pregnancy test or hormonal medication.
