period for over a month, a bit graphic.

On the first of December, 2008 I started my period but it was spotting. ( I am scheduled to see my OBGYN on Monday) So, I wanted to write here anyway. And then again the following day and now it is Jan 2009 and still bleeding. The spotting stopped but it went from that to bleeding. I have all the period symtoms and it is annoying to keep wondering when I will stop. This never happened before. It always was regular and only lasted 4 days ( bleeding days). Does anyone have this happen too? I am only 33.

  • I haven't experienced this personally but when my friend had her son and had her IUD put in every time she peed she said she had to wipe away a little bit of blood...I don't know if that fits in with your situation or not, but its probably for the best that you're going to see your GYN.

  • I am only wearing panty liner or small tampon. It is not enough to just wear nothing. Just enough to see blood. I have not been on birth control since I was 19. I am 33 now.

  • Hmm, Idk then. Is anything else unusual?

  • A couple years ago I had my period for over 3 months. I went to the doctor b/c I was confused, I had been on the same birth control pill for 5 years. They did an ultrasound, tons of bloodwork, even did a glucose test....nothing was wrong. They switched my birthcontrol and it stopped. Are you on any form of bc?
