Hi, I'm 19 I've been having periods since I was 13 or 14 they have always been regular. I miscarried in December but my periods have been regular since then. I am not on any type of birth control but I have had unprotected sex. I've been bleeding for almost a month now when my period usually only last for about five days.. It started off as spotting and a very light pink with some blood but has gotten heavier like my usual periods these past two days. What is going on with me? Can anyone help? Am I pregnant? Could I have miscarried again? Any advice would be appreciated! Ill answer any questions to help you give me the best advice, thank you!

hey, Edgehead here again, forgot my log in details so I'll need to do this anonymously. it finally went away but then the same thing happened a whole lot worse in February 2012 i was bleeding really heavy as though i was haemhorraging so i went to the doctor and she gave me northoristerone and i'm back on my regular cycle. I am however about to move house and since no one is telling me anything i think the same may happen again. I still don't trust doctors and I stopped going to Irish Dancing, that being said however i am still active.

Hi Anon

This is quite common toward the end of a period - one can stop for a day or so and then have another day of a period until it ends. If the period ended after that last day, it's normal.
