Common Questions and Answers about Period lasting 3 weeks

period

the docs usually tell me that after your first baby your period should get more regular, but if it isn't normal to have a long period and it doesn't go away in over 3 to 4 weeks I would suggest seeing a doctor, this isn't uncommon though, it happens to a lot of teens (it's just really annoying).

I had a medical abortion over a month ago and my bleeding lasted up to 2 weeks a few weeks later I started what i presume is my period, this has now been ongoing for 3 weeks, has anyone suffered the same symptoms and is this normal, my GP didnt tell me much as he is against abortions?

I went to the doctor, who took some blood and said I wasn't anemic or pregnant (I thought maybe it was a miscarriage because that is what my sister told me happened to her)... She said to wait 2-3 more weeks, and then to come back if I was still on my period. So it continued... After I went to the doctor, I noticed my blood clots were getting bigger, some as big as about half a fist (I have small hands, btw). They kindof looked like spoonfuls of jelly.
Hi Kitty, There is a simple exercise called edging, to find this just google pegym, on there yopu will find it under exercises, may take a couple of weeks for it to kick in, its not a quick fix. Once he gets it working he needs to stay with it, but I think he will just need to do it once a week then.

While finishing out my last month of school, I had had a period the whole time. It was light for about 3 weeks, and then the last week it was more like my normal period. I do not take any birth control, which I know can make periods longer. But after that last week I had about 3 days without a period, and then the light period came back again for about a week. Again, following that I had 4 days without a period and last night my period came out of nowhere.
Only beyond the window period results will give you the conclusive answer 6-8 weeks is the great indication of your status ( during this time Majority people develop detectable HIV antibodies where your immune system produce antibodies for the antibody test to detect ). Then follow-up at 12 weeks for conclusive result.

Last month I had my period and not even two weeks later had another one. This month I had a period and stopped bleeding after a few days and thought I was done only to come home from work a couple of days later to find I had bled through. I didn't bleed anymore until a day or two after that and have not stopped bleeding since. I have pretty well been on my period for this entire month. It started out light and is now very heavy with a lot of clotting.
I missed 3 birth control pills and I have now had my period for 3 weeks. I just broke up with my boyfriend, lost my job and had to move back in with my parents. Could all of that be a factor to why my period is lasting soo long?
Hello, I'm a 22 year old mother of a 3 year old and i've been bleeding for almost 3 weeks stright. Prior to me getting my period this month, i hadn't had one for 5 months. I just had to have cervical cancer cells removed on january 13. I should also mention that i haven't had sex since November 9, 2008. I'm confused about what it could be, and why it could be lasting this long. my normal period length is between 4-6 days. and i miss those short ones...LOL...
Your symptoms will likely last on the long side, 3-5 weeks. Get support!! Have you gone to any meetings at NA or AA?? if not, I highly suggest you give it a shot! You've got nothing to lose!! Beat of luck!!
Before I started my period lasting this long I didn't have my period for about 4 months so I thought my body was just cleaning itself out or something, but 3 months of it??? COME ON NOW. I don't have sex Ever and I'm pretty healthy as far as I know. I have an apt for a womenly checkup soon, but i'd like to know if there are other people out there who are having this kind of problem as well. Something that bleeds for 3 months strait should be dead...lol.
However, if you are normally regular and have become irregular for a few months it would be worth seeing your Ob/gyn to be sure that everything is OK. If I am reading your post correctly and your period is lasting for 3 weeks at a time, then you definitely need to get checked out. Good luck.
Congratulations on your 3 weeks of sobriety!!. I think that is awsome. I tried a while back to just drink wine on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights and did it for one week and then went right back to drinking every night. I have wondered myself if I am an alcoholic. I have heard that if you ask yourself that question, then you probably are. I came from an alcoholic family (dad only) so I know my chances of being one increase. I love to drink and really can't imagine my life without it.

I'm 41 yrs old and my period has lasted over two weeks and my breast have been hurting too my normal period only last 3-4 days I have had a blood clot but haven't had one sense then my question should I be concerned about this please help
Hi girls, I am wondering if anyone has experienced implantation pains lasting say 24 hours or so? I am 6 days past ovulation and last night I had cramps like I was going to start my period...I haven't slept since 4:00 a.m. this morning and now that it's 7:00 a.m., I feel much better. Does anyone know how long this lasts? My nipples are also very sore. Thanks!
My period came for 1st time after pregnancy on March 10 and it is STILL going on. I am frustrated. I called my ob/gyn after 3 weeks of period letting her know it was getting heavier and huge chunks of blood were coming out, not lighter...she never responded and no one from her office returned my 3 phone calls over the course of a week. I went to the emergency room (last Thursday) on the advice of a nurse hotline, and was prescribed birthcontrol pills and iron supplement.
So essentially after not having a period for about 6 months, I've now been bleeding and/or excreting brown discharge for nearly 3. It's probably past time to see a doctor, it's just not easy when funds are low and you have no insurance to cover it. The accident I had last year really kind of threw a wrench in my life ><. I've never sought free medical assistance and don't even know where to in my area for something like this.
