Need evaluation: When you are on the birth control pill, there is often good control of when your period occurs with occasional breakthrough spotting. Daily bleeding unrelated to your cycle or pill-free week needs to be evaluated. Check a pregnancy test now and schedule a visit with your doctor! ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
My normal period is only four days long, but i am now on day 9 of my period. why is it lasting so long?
Could be many things: A few things could be at work here. First, you're young and still prone to having random irregular periods that can include either longer than normal or heavier than normal. Also, if you are on any hormonal birth control, this can cause this kind of cycle to happen once in awhile while you adjust to the hormones. If you bleed more than 3 weeks, see your doc for a drug to stop the bleeding. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Im on bcp and i started my period 2 weeks ealier than normal and it is lasting a long time. Almost at the 2 week mark. What is goin on?
Had a LEEP procedure done a week and a half ago and just got my period. It's a lot heavier and lasting longer. Is this normal?
It's ok: I'm not sure if this period was early or at the expected time. Either way I think you could consider this normal. The cervical lesion created by leep is healing at 10 days. The accompanying hormone changes and blood associated with menses could easily lead to a heavier and longer period. Bleeding is expected for 4+ weeks after LEEP. However, if the amount of bleeding concerns you, call you Doc ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

A : A regular period occurs once every 24-35 days (3.5 to 5 weeks) and should last 7 days or less. The two most common reasons for abnormal cycles are abnormal hormone levels or problems with the uterus. In order to check your hormone levels, you should have a hormonal evaluation to look at your thyroid function (tsh/t4), ovarian function (fsh) on day 2-4 of your cycle, pituitary function (specifically prolactin) and your testosterone levels (to see if you have polycystic ovarian syndrome). If any of these are abnormal they can usually be treated with medication. In order to evaluate the uterus, the best test will be a sonohystogram (pelvic ultrasound with saline water infusion into the uterus). This will allow the doctor to "see" inside the uterus to see if you have any polyps (abnormal growths of uterine lining) or fibroids (non-cancerous tumors) that can be causing the bleeding. The ultrasound will also allow the doctor to check for large ovarian cysts or many small ovarian cysts (polycystic ovaries) which can lead to heavy or prolonged bleeding. If you have anemia due to heavy bleeding you may consider taking a multivitamin or iron tablets. You may consider seeing a reproductive endocrinologist to help resolve your bleeding issues.

Hi, I went to a doctor, did some blood work and turns out I have some signs of PCOS. I've been working on eating healthier and now I got my period but it's been lasting much longer than normal. It's over a week and I still have it.
