Hi. I do not understand what is wrong with me. My period in July, stated on the 3rd. It was about 5 days early. And it was a bit normal for me to be a bit IRregular. so, i didnt think anything about it. Then in August, it came on the 3rd as well. I thought "well maybe it is regulating." and didnt think anything of it. Until September came around. I was expecting it on the 3rd, but apparently, it wasnt regulating. It was jsut playing tricks on me. I started to get worried when it hadnt appeared after my 37 day cycle. Then, on the night of day 38 of my cycle(which was September 9) I got it. Now, on the night of September 20, I still have it. I am getting so worried. It has never been this long. And it is still going strong. I wouldnt be surpirsed if it was still there in the morning. Has anyone experienced this before? It has lasted, so far, 12 days? Anyone help me. Please.

Oh, and I guess I should add, it isnt like my normal menstruation. My normal one will last for 4-5 days and be heavy. This one isn't light, nor heavy. Kind of in the middle.

Any help appreciated. Thanks!

Hello,

Welcome to ehealthforum

Your symptoms are suggestive of hormonal imbalance in the body which may or may not be due to any underlying abnormality as PCOD,Endometritis etc and it would require an examination and evaluation to rule out the exact cause.Usually for irregular periods Birth control pills are advised.
Kindly visit a gynaecologist for pelvic exmaination and USG scan which would help in ruling out the exact cause.

Taka Care!
