  • Are you on birth control? It could be hormonal with or without them. I was on BC and had a period for about 18 months. Once I quit taking them, my body regulated out. After DD was born, my hormones wouldn't take the BC.

    If you aren't on BC, you need to see the doc. It could be hormones, it could be PCOS, it could be cysts.

  • I'm on my second period in less then 2 weeks. My first one this month lasted 10 days then 10 days later I started up again. I think it's because of the depo shot. Maybe if you're on BC it's causing your cycle to go all out of whack

  • I had this happen when I took the progesterone-only mini pill years ago. I would have 9 day periods, 5 days off, 9 days on, etc. I went like that for months until I just couldn't take it anymore. I had to quit using that pill. Not sure how reversable provera is or even exactly what it is. But I would check with your doc. With this much blood loss, you will get very anemic.

  • I don't understand how something can bleed for 5 days and not die! LoL! Something can be really wrong or is there a reason why you're not going to your doctor? I mean, think of how your husband or boyfriend must feel? Grandma can't stay in town forever!
