User avatar Hi bently,
Hormone inbalances are frequently related to menses irregularities. However, 13 days and still counting, certainly warrants an evaluation. I would suggest you call the physicians office and speak with the nurse or ask that your physician return your call. In my opinion whomever instructed that you could not be evaluated until the bleeding subsided was incorrect.
