unusual LONG PERIOD

Ok, so my period came a few days late this month. If this helps in me getting answers to my question,  I must also say that I was diagnosed with pcos. Last cycle I was given menopur by my doctor due to the failure of clomid in my ttc journey. The menopur was unsuccessful as well with the first try. I didnt respond to it at all. I injected 150iu for 5 days. After using menopur my cycle and bbt has been like crap. My bbt is all over the place, my period came few days late and it finally came but its been a week now with no end and it is usually 4 days long. Now could someone tell me why my period has been so long? A week with no sign of ending. The flow is between light and medium and a few little clots now and then. Please someone tell me why my period last for more than the usual 4 days. For the last 6-7 months my period has been 4day long. Could menopur have affected my cycle?  I am very worried now.

HI,
PCOS as well as exogenous hormones can be responsible for affecting the natural menstrual cycle. Hence further evaluation will be necessary to pin-point the exact cause. Hormonal panel and an ultrasound scan should be done. Hope this helps.
Take care and good luck.
