Today, it's the 16th day of my period. FML

BagelTheOtaku Say more :
Wow I was really surprised to be published, it made my day a bit better. I held off on commenting until I knew more about my issue. I actually went to the doctor two days after this got published. The doctor said it had happened because I had missed like 3 pills(birth control) in one month. The period continued for 3 months with 2-4 day breaks in between. I'm glad to say it's back to normal and on a regular cycle. (I'm 15)

I can. Used to have the same problem. It's the reason I started using birth control pills at 13 years old. It was also bad enough that I had to change pads every hour or so. The horror!

I had 2 periods in 2011 for 30+ days a piece. I went and saw the doctor and I found out I have PCOS. I've been on birth control and metformin ever since and my periods are semi regular now

I found out I was allergic to the depo provera shot because it gave me a period that lasted for 7 months. I nearly died. Make sure you're getting plenty of vitamins and nutrients, drink lots of water, and check your iron levels. Best of luck to you!

Man, I'm the complete opposite. When I was 16, I didn't have my period for 9 months until I had to go to the doctor and she put me on birth control. Before then, I had irregular periods, so I had them every 3 - 4 months. My doctor never formally diagnosed me with PCOS.

I got on birth control since my periods were irregular and heavy. Sometimes I had them 14 days apart from each other, other times 2 months apart. Now birth control is causing an about 16 day and counting period, like you op.

My first period lasted 2 years straight. I had a billion and a half tests done and they never found the cause. They eventually just put me on birth control and that regulated it.

for the first few years of my period it was 12 days on, 10 days off. I spent more time bleeding than not. of course, blood loss lead to severe tiredness which lead to me falling asleep at 3.30 the moment I got home from school and waking up at 8am the next day still on the lounge in my school uniform.

Yup, I'm in that terrible club, too. If I'm not on birth control, my periods are usually 3 weeks on/2 weeks off. I quit a job once after being on my period for 7 weeks. I went on depo at my son's first checkup after he was born, which then catapulted into me bleeding for 8 months. no fun

It might not be a serious thing. When I had an IUD put in I bled for nearly 3 weeks straight for my first "period". If OP started a new birth control or really anything that affect hormones, that's probably why. If none of the above applies to you OP, I'd go to the doctor pronto!

OP I have to agree, go see your Dr. Even if it is a birth control issue. I had a 7 WEEK period once, turns out I had built up a tolerance to the Depo shot and it had warn off! My husband and I were lucky I didn't get pregnant as we were still in high school.

133- So I had 2 miscarriages causing me to bleed for two months and that makes me cute because yours lasted longer? Well, I have to say you're a bitch for not considering how these types of things affect other people and thinking you're superior because your vagina bled for 3 months. Just because yours lasted longer doesn't make our experiences any less than yours. Don't talk with your mouth full of shit.

I was on a bad birth control pill, could swear they were Plan B pills, they made me get my period every other week last month. I was starting on my third week period when I stopped taking them, once I did that the bleeding stopped. Now this month I'm just waiting for my regular period to come back. I know how you're feeling OP, mine was an easy fix but I hope you went to the doctors. To those who are making a joke out of this and those saying OP deserves it, you guys should go read a book, one o

I've had a period last for 4 months and 13 days; I tried birth control but it messed with my emotions too much (depression and suicidal thoughts). I go months without periods and then months with periods. It's so annoying.
