why is my period lasting so long

my period has been lasting for just over 15days and its still going
im about to turn 15 years old and my period has never lasted longer then seven days
it hasnt been a heavy but its steady like it hasnt been on and off
my period hadnt come for several months before this happened and once i stated i havent stopped
is this normal? should i be concerned?

i think its because you havent gotten your period in a really long time that your body is shedding the lining. If it continues this way for another few days, id say try to make an appointment with the doctor just to be sure. To me it sounds like anovulatory bleeding. google it. good luck i know what you are going thru, except i am constantly spotting righ tnow and it doesnt stop.
