My longest was about 3 weeks, when I was 16. I had to be put on BC to keep it regular..I was on that for about 8 or so years and I came off of it about a year ago. It’s just now starting to get regular. When you say long, how long is long? And is this the first time it’s been super long for you?

My longest was a 59 day cycle, almost 2 months! I mean my periods can be slightly irregular but this was ridiculous! My average is a 34 day cycle and I bleed for 3 days.

How long has yours been already?

ETA: LOL. Totally misunderstood your question. I’m sorry!

I think 10 days right around when my period started so about 16 yrs old?  Normal before BC was like 6 days (3 pretty heavy)… and super irregular, anywhere from 4-12 weeks.  Since going on BC…. 3-4 days.

Do you mean what’s the longest we’ve bled?  Or the longest total cycle?

My longest bleed was 11 or 12 days (they were always 9 or 10 days before I went on BC pills).

@CarolinaCola:  Mine used to be like that as well. It would just show up whenever it felt like it, and last for as long as it felt like it. BC helped me a lot with it. Have you talked to your Dr about it? They can really be a pain in the ass. Who wants to bleed that long???

My periods have never been regular.  My longest continual period (ranging from heavy bleeding to spotting every day) was 5 weeks.  I actually got anemic.  And I was on BC to regulate my periods too.  Go figure.

The longest it’s ever stopped was an entire year.  That was without any BC.

I have an Implanon implant, and my periods have gotten really long since I got it (except for the period that I should have been on on my wedding night, thank goodness.  That one stopped the day of the wedding after only four days!).  I average around 25 days per period.  Fortunately, they’re very light periods overall, so I don’t think I actually bleed much more than I used to when I wasn’t on BC.

@CarolinaCola:  Yea. I think you should..Based on my own personal experience. I mean there was no cramps or anything, i was jus bleeding..and it sounds gross lol. But yea, definitely talk to your doctor about it.

Naturally, 8 days.

First BC pill I tried, 2 weeks (ironically that pill is marketed as causing shorter periods).  My body did not like that pill!

My longest period ever was probably 7 days or so, but that isn’t normal for me.  However, my normal cycles are anywhere between 30-60 days!!!  PCOS here!
