Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us with concern regarding a prolonged menstrual period. This would be considered abnormal vaginal bleeding, specifically hypermenorrhea, which is bleeding for too long of a period.

The menstrual cycle is regulated by a precise balance of four hormones. Possible causes range from an endocrine or hormone disturbance to ovarian or endometrial polyps .

Thankfully the flow is light. But, please contact your gynecologist or primary care physician to determine the cause before it continues next month.
