Hi. I'm 15 Years old. I'm over weight, I'm 230 pounds almost. I skipped my period for over a year. But I was still having discharge.(Ywllowish) Last month, I came on. My peiod. It was Very light. I was on for seven days, and then came off as was on again for about four days. And was off. Now this month, I came on from the Decemer 29th. very light to the 6th lightly. Ever since the 5th I've been on my period heavy. My mom, asked her doctor about it. She said here Im regular it's possible to be on longer then 7 days. Is this true?

Hello Kendell1234567,

Thank you for sharing your question with the community.  I'd love to give you some advice on the matter.

First I think it is important for me to say that being over-weight can greatly effect your cycle because it can create hormonal imbalances in the body.  This is most likely the reason why your period has been irregular.

Since your bleeding is very light most of the time, it is nothing to worry about.  However, if you experience heavy bleeding for more than 7 days, it has become a more dangerous situation.

At this point however, it has only been 5 days.  Therefore, you are still experiencing a healthy cycle.

I hope this helps.  Let us know if you have any more questions.
