See a gynecologist.

I posted in this thread a few years back, didn't know what the cause of my period lasting so long was then.

I found out a couple of years ago because I bled so much that I hemorrhaged and I had to go to the hospital and have a transfusion. While I was there, they did a biopsy and said that I had precancerous growths in the lining of my uterus. Taking meds for a couple of months cleared up the problem and my period has been heavy since then but only lasts a week at a time.

I'm actually glad that I reached a crisis point and had to go to the hospital...my gynecologist said a lot of times women with the problem that I had ignore it until it's too late and it's turned into cancer and spread to other parts of the body.

So please don't ignore your problem or think that because it's happened to other people, it's nothing to worry about. Go see a gynecologist, let her tell you if it's nothing to worry about. And take care of yourself!

I've been on my period for 4 months straight too. Bleeding with a flow and spoting. I'm on birth control. I'm not able to go to a Dr. Because I don't have insurance

Do you mean you don't live near a doctor or that you can't go to one because you don't have insurance?

Check with your public health office. Are you in school? Maybe ask your school nurse for help finding a doctor. They may know of a women's health clinic that offers lower cost services. If you read the thread, you should realize that this is not normal and needs to be checked out.

An ultrasound will show what's going on.
A uterus biopsy is another.

The OB can clue you in. It could be fibroid tumors. Those aren't cancerous and can be controlled with birth control pills. Do your research but yes, like everyone else said, go to your doctor. Having a mild flow is one thing. Having bright red clots or bright red flow is something else. Take your concerns to the doctor. This is not normal.

You're able to go to the dr...not having insurance doesn't mean you can't see a dr. I'll never understand this logic...people would rather die of cancer/disease before taking money of their pocket to see dr.

Do you have insurance and a potentially chronic/serious medical problem that needs to be treated? Just curious.
