Period two weeks and going

I am 25 and a little freaked out.I have always been on time with my periods each month they have always been manageable.I had my tubes tied not long after i had my daughter. And for some reason this time around my period has been longer. It has been two weeks to the day and still going. Keeps going back and fourth between old and new blood on top of light and heavy. What could this be?

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Please get a pregnancy test done to rule out pregnancy first
In case of abnormal vaginal bleeding Pregnancy must be
ruled out first.
If pregnancy is ruled out then workup for dysmenorrhea
and anatomical problems can be done.

wishing you best of health

I also agree that pregnancy test would help you in knowing the exact reason behind bleeding. So go for it first, in case you can also consult your gynecologist to help you in knowing this issue more properly.And to stay comfortable in this heavy bleeding you can make use of Cupissima .

Could also be a fibroid. That's usually more common in older women near menopausal age. But worth checking out, so it can stop stress worries. Most fibroids are benign/ non cancerous.
