    Unhappy Period lasting two weeks.


    Hi. I am 16 years old, and my periods have been lasting longer than they should recently. They last for two weeks and sometimes even a day or two longer. The first week the flow is very light, but after about five days it gets heavie than it even nomally would. I have never been sexually active and I view myself as a generally healthy individual. This all started when I got back into my workout regimen, after Christmas. I had myself convinced that it would go back to normal, but it hasn't yet, and I'm really starting to get worried. Could something be seriously wrong?

    Your period should be around 7 days or so, you shouldn't be having a period lasting longer than 2 weeks. Your period should last just long enough to shed the lining of your uterus. So since it is lasting longer you should really go to a doctor. If you aren't sexually active I'll assume you aren't on a birth control, because birth control tends to help with cramping and irregular periods. So it might be something simple that can be fixed with a birth control, but you won't know until you go to a doctor.
