Have you shared this with your mother? I know you must be scared, but sweetie, you are only 15 and you need to find out what is causing this. You can become anemic because you are bleeding for so long. Anemia is a condition in which there are not enough red blood cells in your body. By going to see the doctor, you can find out the cause. The doctor may do a blood test to check for anemia or to check your hormone levels. The prick and pain of a needle will last a few seconds. Please get checked out:)

I did some research on Beyaz. Though menstrual irregularities are a side effect of this oral contraceptive, a period that lasts for 3 weeks is abnormal and needs to be evaluated by a gynecologist. There should be another gynecologist who is covering the practice while your doctor is away. Call your doctor's office right away to be evaluated by the covering physician.
