Yes: 1 week is getting long for a common type of viral illness that can cause diarrhea, and you become more at risk of getting dehydrated and acquiring electrolyte abnormalities with chronic diarrhea. See a dr. For an evaluation, diagnosis and treatment. Best wishes.

I would be concerned: And contact my oby-gyn. You can easily get dehydrated. I would also be concerned of the etiology of the condition.

Get it checked: May be something, may be nothing. Could be irritable bowel, could be parasites, celiac sprue, inflammatory bowel, tumors, hormones, etc. See your doc.
