Heavy periods lasting 2 weeks

Common Questions and Answers about Heavy periods lasting 2 weeks


Avatar f tn However, within these past few months, I had a period two weeks apart and this past one was 7 weeks apart both lasting only 2 days and staying moderately heavy and then just ending. I wasn't even sure that last one was a period because it was so short and so close to my last one but it was this same length this time as well! I've taken multiple pregnancy tests that have all come back negative. I am not stressed but have increased my workout frequency.
53833 tn?1234996629 This is at age 46 after a lifetime of regular, heavy flow, intensely crampy but predictable periods lasting 5 to 7 days every 28 days, which last year turned into periods lasting 8 to 10 days with extremely heavy flooding. When will there be an end to this madness? It seems like I get about 3 days a month where I feel like my normal self, then it all starts again.
Avatar f tn I used to be a regular 5 day cycle. Easy to to spot and tell how my cycle would be(heavy, light,spotting) I'm TTC #2 and paying attention to my cycles I became more aware each cycle has been regular in timing but flow has gone to three days, obgyn is not worried about how long period is lasting as much as at least I am having one. Which was important. always good to see a Dr if you need the reassurance. Every woman is different.
Avatar f tn Usaully my periods last a week .. The last two month my periods has been lasting 2-3 days starting off heavy then getting lighter ... Could I be pregnant although my period is not late?
Avatar m tn These weird things happen at the start of and during menopause. So are heavy periods that go on 2 weeks or more, and 2-3 months or so without a period. Ovulation gets all messed-up so intervals between periods go wacky. But it's always best to have an obs/gyn referral from your doctor, and get checked out thoroughly so you can rule out any other problem first. (I was a regular visitor to my ob/gyn specialist for a couple of years!! They got sick of seeing me!
Avatar f tn I have always been medium sized. I started my period when I was 11 and from that time on into your age I was having a 2 week straight period with a very heavy flow-- to the point where I had alot of embarrassing accidents. Then it would stop for two weeks, then the cycle went for 2 more weeks and so on. I don't think it regulated until I was out of high school. Now I have a 7 day cycle and very heavy in the middle of the cycle-- to the point I have to change my pad every 2 hours.
Avatar f tn Hi I'm 29 and for the last two months my periods had come early but has been its usually light self until the day it due and then becomes really heavy. My period would normally only last a day or two but now it's lasting the week. There is cloting aswell. What could this be? I have been dieting for the last 9 weeks and have lost a total of 17lb so far maybe this could be why?
Avatar f tn Me and my fiance have been having sex a lot lately. And I have had my period but they've been a day or so late, but they've been short and heavy... usually my periods last five days but they've been lasting about 2-3 days... what can cause this or can it be a sign of pregnancy? I've taken tests but they've came up negative.. any help?
Avatar f tn You could have ployps or fibroids - both can cause heavy bleeding and long periods. Go see your general practioner for a referral to a gynaecologist.
823438 tn?1238591223 Thats actually incorrect. Having PCOS myself and from talking to other moms & women who have PCOS... your periods are heavy and long... not short and light. It could also be an estrogen problem. Are you on birth control?
Avatar n tn She feels like she is going to bleed to death at times and it scares her. Her periods can also last almost two weeks with these heavy days lasting 2-3 days and sometimes another heavy day during the end. She is wondering if it is best she get a hysterectomy because the fibroids do not seem to be going away and the fear of bleeding to death during her period is always there. Her cardiologist does not want her going off the warfarin for any reason, but these periods are getting intolerable.
Avatar f tn Most times, my periods would be heavy for a few days then I'd start to get a brown discharge that slowly turns into my regular discharge(this whole thing usually lasts a little over a week). Sometimes(this is happening now), I would have excessive black/brown discharge after the normal bleeding. However, this time around.... it seems to be lasting forever. I'm coming close to 2 weeks now. Is this okay?
Avatar m tn i have always had regular periods, lasting 5days on a 28day cycle, but in the last 10 weeks my cycle has suddenly changed dramatically. in the last 10 weeks i have had 5 periods each lasting 7 days, they have all been very heavy and quite painful, with only 7days between each period. what could be causing this? is this normal or could there be something wrong.? will i still be ovulating? could this be a sign of pregnancy? ovarian cancer? or is it normal for this to happen?

Avatar f tn I also have a slightly underactive thyroid which i take medication for. Over the last year and a half my periods have been irregular. Sometimes lasting 5 weeks with heavy flow and then not arriving for 8 weeks. Over the course of the last 4 months i have began a healthy eating diet and have lost 4 stones in weight. Over this period i have been spotting between periods and after sex there is bleeding.
Avatar n tn Like another comment said, birth control can help with long or heavy periods. It has been prescribed by many doctors for those specific reasons.
Avatar n tn Hi i am only 19 years old and have been having irregular periods that have been lasting for weeks at a time with only a few days break. at the moment i have been bleeding for two months and it hasn't slowed down at all and i haven't had any pain with it either.

Avatar f tn Hi, I'm 14. I had my first period in mid January. At that time, I was bleeding like HELL. heavy bleeding.. and it lasted 3 1/2 weeks. My mom didn't say anything was wrong, but just the fact that it was probably heavy because I was older and only got it now. But I'm still kind of freaked out. Since then, I've had 3 other periods. One lasted a normal week, while the other, 2 or 3 days. I am on my period once again and heavy bleeding LIKE CRAZY. any help? Is this just normal..??
Avatar f tn I had my period that month but was very strange, my periods are normally always on time and medium to heavy flow lasting 5days. This one tho was 2days late only lasted 2 days and was very light watery and pink, not like blood at all. I did take a test which showed up neg, took another one a week later again neg. Therefore thought just a weird period. Although this month again my period was very light and started off brown spotting and again only lasted a day and a half.
Avatar f tn My normal cycle is usually 7 days of menses with the first 2-3 days heavy. This month I have had 3 very light periods lasting no more than 5 days with about 12 days in between. Today is May 21 and I am on day 3 of my 3rd light period. My last period was about two weeks ago but before that period I had a very light period about 10 days before. I have never taken the pill and although I am sexually active with my fiance we use protection.
Avatar f tn I had unprotected sex 3 months ago and now my periods are only lasting 2 days at the most and are extremely light. My periods are usually heavy and last a minimum of 5 days. I hhave been gaining weight and having really weird cravings. My boobs are growing and nipples are showing bigger bumps on aerola and browning. I have taken 4 HPT and they have came out negative. Can i still be pregnant?
Avatar f tn the last 2 months I have been certain I am pregnant! My periods are usually 5-6 days long extremely heavy the first day and then a pretty heavy flow through til the last 2 days when its still bleeding but light. October I was nauseous on and off headaches lasting for 15 minutes very randomly and then they're gone. My period was 13 days late and was mildly heavy but spotting none the less. Next month way more symptoms then the last. NAusea and headaches got worse dizziness started.
Avatar f tn my first symptom of being hypo was periods were lasting nearly two weeks and very heavy then ten days off and back on again.
