Hi! I'm 33 years old and a mother of 2. I've been menstruating since Feb. 26, 2008. It was heavy for about 5 days and now it's just a light flow. I've done researched on what could have caused the irregularity but had no luck on determining the cause. I don't have any other symptoms and pregnancy is out of the question unless my husband's vasectomy 3 or 4 years ago healed miraculously. I have a Doctor's appt. on Friday. Does anybody have any thoughts on this matter? Thanks a bunch.
Has anyone found out about prolonged menstruation? My period has lasted two weeks and is light to medium flow today. I have regular 31 day cycles (on ave). I had two 35 day cycles, which is normal. Then started menstruation after 15 days (very short!). Since I've started, it's been "light-medium" to "spotting," varying day to day, but fairly continuous. The cramping has been fairly continuous too. It's not as sever as my typical menstruation cramps. The cramps are light and in the front on the left, like an ovulation cramp. I am not on birth control, but am on a low dose synthetic progesterone (prescription). Anyway, I'm worried. It's been two weeks and usually I only have 6 day periods.
