My period has lasted 2 weeks, never happened before. Started very light, just spotting then heavy with a lot of clots. Do I need to see a doctor?

Prolonged Menses: with 2 weeks of now heavy bleeding I would recommend that you get in as soon as possible. You are getting to the point where symptoms from blood loss and anemia are distinct possibilities. Any shortness of breath, dizzyness, lightheaded feelings should be followed by a trip to an ER. ...Read more

I took a plan b and my period has lasted almost two weeks!! Is this normal?

Not unusual: Plan B has a bolus of hormones that interferes with your normal cycle and fortunately, prevents pregnancy. Menstrual cycles may be off for several months. Plan B is best used as Emergency med only, and I recommend a regular contraceptive plan such as the pill or depo for routine use. ...Read more

Hi Scarlett, : Congratulations on your baby girl. You're describing something that is common after having a baby. Continue your birth control every day & usually your cycle will stabilize by 2-3 months. Two weeks of spotting is normal; 2 weeks of heavy bleeding with clots, dizziness, and/or weakness should be evaluated by your ob. Continue your prenatal vitamins if you have any left & good luck with your baby. ...Read more

2 months: 2 months is too long for you to bleed. If you have heavy bleeding you could have developed anemia. This is called dysfunctional uterine bleeding and the likely cause is an imbalance in your hormones. Other problems such as a low thyroid and trouble with clotting can cause the same problem. See your doctor very soon for an exam and investigations. ...Read more
