Why is my period lasting 12 days...and counting?

I am 22 and I don't take birth control, I exercise 3 times a week but not heavy exercise. I had a normal period on February but missed Januaries and Decembers. Started my period the 24th in March. I have heavy bleeding and I usually have it on the 2nd-3rd day of my period but this is getting ridiculous. Is it ok to go trough such experience not having to worry? Husband is out of state so i cant blame him lol

its normal i would have a period for months and that was the norm for me at times it would last for up to two months and i was young i was like 16 and this was happing so i put myself on b/c to even it out but since you want a baby i wouldnt go that route i would talk to your doc and see what she/he has to say just to be safe but alot of women just have long periods i was one of them and seems like you are too so if its a big concern for you than talk to your doc
