If you have lots of bleeding for 2-3 weeks on end then perhaps you will need to shock your hormones into resetting. A healthcare provider can help. ...Read more

Having : Having a long, heavy period is typical when you haven't had a period for a long time. This happens when a woman doesn't ovulate regularly. This can happen when a person has gained or lost weight, has a hormone imbalance, or is getting close to menopause. Not having regular periods also puts a woman at risk for a uterine pre-cancer or cancer. Consider the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud to protect against a pre-cancer or cancer. ...Read more
