The period that never ends!

I started my period on September 8th, and it's still going on. I do have an appointment to see my doctor on Friday. I was just wondering if anyone else had experienced anything like this. Hoping to have some idea what is going on before I go in.

This had happened before, but not to this extent. Every few months I'll have a longer period, usually about 2 weeks. But this one is showing no sign of stopping.

Does anyone have any advice or stories to share? Any ideas on why this may be happening?

Thanks to all!!

  • You may have uterine fibroids which you can have heavy bleeding with your period.

  • No, no birth control. I had my tubes ties about 5 years ago. Because I have high bleed pressure, my doctor felt it wasn't a safe option for me.
