My most recent period was late by a week. I started and it was very light bleeding for a week (which is not normal for me, I have really heavy periods). Now it's been three weeks since the start of my period, and I'm still spotting. Enough that I can get by with wearing a panty liner. It is very brown (looks like old blood) and I'm passing a ton of tissue.
Two possibilities come to mind. Of course, there's the question: are you pregnant? Could you be pregnant and having a miscarriage. For my own patient, I would certainly recommend a pregnancy test.
If it is not pregnancy--then you are probably having an anovulatory cycle. (no ovulation this month) Depending upon how long the heavy bleeding and-or irregular bleeding has been going on, I might want to do a biopsy of the uterine lining looking for polyps and other pathology. I would probably also recommend some progesterone for 10-14 days to cause everything that has built up in there to slough off.
