Hi nattybabyy,

If you are going on 13 days with your period and it does not seem to be lightening, then you should call your doctors as soon as possible because you are at risk for haemorrhaging. If at any point you have a heavy increase in blood flow please go to your local Emergency department. If you are feeling light headed, tired, with no energy then you may have a low hemoglobin count due to loss of blood and should go to your ER for this as well. 

Best Wishes,
