Period for over 2 weeks!! Help?

I normally have a pretty regular period, quite heavy and sometimes very painful, but all normal. On my last period, i got it on time, it was a little heavy, and I had some bad cramps. 10 days after i finished, it came back! It was brown and very light, hardly anything, it's been over 2 weeks now and it varies in flow and colour, but mostly light and brownish/red. I'm not sure if this is normal, and I really don't want to go see a doctor! Has this happened to anyone?

Hello,

Welcome to eehalthforum

Spotting and bleeding after periods is unusual and is suggestive of hormonal imbalances due to any underlying disorder.Mild spotting sometimes occurs during ovulation and is quite normal but prolonged bleeding requires an evaluation.
You require a complete examination and USG scan and Hormonal analysis to rule out the exact cause.Consider visiting a Gynaecologist and start the appropriate treatment accordingly.

Take Care!

Heavy bleeding or bleeding in between periods will be suggestive of either hormonal imbalance or may be due to any medication like oc pills. It also depends on age in pubertal age group it is physiological where as in married female many times due to IUCD induced. If you will same complaints in next cycle also there is need for USG to rule out any pathological cause. Consult gynecologist if you are suffering with heavy flow .
Have a happy healthy day.

Hello, i am new to the forum. I am a 37 yo with 2 kids, the youngest is 2. I am having the same issue (prolonged menstrual cycle) so I saw my gyn today. She thinks it's probably hormonal imbalance and gave me 3 months worth of Beyaz. I have never wanted to get on "the Pill" and even though she takes this brand, and i trust her, i was wondering if anyone knows of any non-hormonal remedies? I looked up herbal remedies and there are a lot, so i was wondering if anyone had any experience with any of them and which ones seem to work best? Thanks in advance.
