I did notice that the topic has been posted before about young women’s periods going on for weeks and weeks. My situation is similar in the sense that my period will go on for 2 or more weeks before coming to an end. The pattern has been, for the last 4 months, a bit on the funky side. It started on the first on July and before that my period was very consistent so believe me when I say the change was drastic. It started coming for 2 weeks then stopping for 2 weeks then starting again for another 2 weeks. It continued like this through July and August then in September it skipped and came back in the beginning of October and is now going on 2 weeks again. Usually it is extremely heavy this time it’s been fairly light but very annoying. My body is exhausted and I have a feeling it’s not going to be over for a while admittedly I have gained a significant amount of weight since September of 2008 but since July I have resorted to consistent workout regiments and have lost a bit of weight but still have seen no changes in my menstrual cycle at all! Im becoming scared about what may be happening to my body. Confused because i dont understand why its happening to my body. And frustrated because I want to go back to my body to go back to normal and fast. Please does anyone out there understand why this happens? And what can I do to make it stop?
