Why Am I Still On My Period
Unanswerable: This question has no history or story to it. There is too much left out for any of us here to comment with some validity. Given your age there is the added possibility that you are entering menopause. Hormone imbalances can be part of this; a miscarriage may be to blame. Your gynecologist needs to see you soon if not today. ...Read more
I've had my period for 2 weeks now. I have the Depo-Provera injection (birth control) every 12 weeks. Why am i still on my period?
It is the depo: Bleeding often becomes irregular an prolonged on depo-provera due to thinning of the uterine lining.

If you are not satisfied with your level of menstrual cycle control then consider taking birth control to regulate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why am i still cramping even tho my period has been over for two days? Is pregnancy a possibility or is it something else?
Something else: While pregnancy is always a remote possibility only 2 days after completion of your menstrual cycle, it's likely something else. It could be endometriosis, adenomyosis, it could be a polyp or fibroid (though at your age that would be less likely). I would see a gynecologist. If the pain is severe, they may order an ultrasound to look at the inside of the uterus. Good luck! ...Read more
