Hi Anon

Thank you for your post. 

It sounds like you had a bad month in terms of PMS and a longer than usual period. A hormonal shift or a change in body chemistry may be the culprit. This can happen for any reason - sometimes it's gradual, sometimes it happens as quickly as over the course of a month. 

If you are testing negative for pregnancy then you can likely rule that out. 

Have you stopped bleeding yet, Apon? The average period lasts from 2 to about 7 days so you are running a little long but for some women, some months can be shorter of longer.

You can read more about the menstrual cycle here:


Evaluate your cycle in the next four days - you may go have to normal again. I hope this has helped!
