Hi marj,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

A typical "normal" menstrual cycle last anywhere from 2 to 7 days. Anything longer than that is considered to be an extended menstrual cycle. Potential causes include; fibroids, cyst, temporary hormonal imbalance, etc.

Here is an article with additional information:

Reasons for a Two Week Long Period

Call and discuss your symptoms with your gynecologist.

 

I hope this helps,

Hello Gillette,

Thanks you so much for the information.

Now I will not be worried as to why I'm having two weeks long period last month. I have another question, it's now 29th day of the month but still don't have menstruation? Normally, it will came on the second week of the month. Is this a sign that I'm pregnant?
