Question: Period


 WishxStar - Sun Oct 28, 2007 1:48 pm

Hello. I am 18 years old female. My period is acting never strange to me. It is because I got my period around late September and I still have it (October 28) so it's probably around a month and a few days. I was wondering why my period isn't stopping. On September it was normal. But after a week starting in October it was dripping very lightly, so I thought my period would be a couple days more. The light drips continued everyday. I never had this kind of period before. Never had any diagnoses or surgeries and none of my family members who are females had this kind problem. I exercise everyday and I'm healthy. Also I do not take any medications. I hope you can help me :) Thank you!

User avatar Period irregularities can be very normal but usually when a period lasts longer than 7 days it is good to see a doctor who can check on hormone levels. There could be an imbalance or even a thyroid condition so diagnosis is important in order to find appropriate treatment.

Best regards
