I’d definitely go in for an exam–I bled for 21 days straight when I was very young (15) and ended up going on the pill as a result. Now, I’m regular as the almanac (which I love).

Are you on B/C pills by any chance?

I’d go to the doctor to have an examination.  Wish you the best!

I would go get it checked out. Even if it is light you could become anemic with bleeding too long.

I don’t have regualr one’s either.  Did you start on the pill or any other medication?  When i started on the pill after pretty much not ovulating or getting a period all thru college, I bled for about a month.  My dr said it was normal.

Hmm do you have PCOS or anything?  I’ve been known to have mine for months on end.  The Dr just gives me some pills to stop it.  Sometimes it doesn’t come for months at a time too.

You should see a Dr asap.  Uterine health is so important.  Be careful of cancer etc.  Sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you!

It is possible that it is something….or nothing.  Something similar happened to me once and it ended up being fibroids.  However, I had very heavy bleeding for about 1 month.  If the bleeding is light there probably isn’t much to worry about while waiting for the appointment in 2 weeks.  Even if the bleeding stops you should keep the appointment.  There are lots of things it could be…or not be (as in, it may just be a random thing).
