This is my 7th year after i start period. At first my period is 2 months once. Then it change to 3 months once and finally 4 months once. When i went to see the doctor they said to me it is normal. Even though i have period after a few months it only last for 7 to 8 days. But recently after 4 months i have my period but it didn't stop yet. It almost going to be 1 month for me having period. I am so worried about this. What is the actual problem for me? Why this is happening to me?

Hello Silvermist,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. I am glad you reached out to us with your concern.

This is not normal. The menstrual cycle, which is counted from the first day of one period to the first day of the next, isn't the same for every woman. Menstrual flow might occur every 21 to 35 days and last two to seven days. For the first few years after menstruation begins, long cycles are common. However, menstrual cycles tend to shorten and become more regular as you age.

Silvermist, it is very abnormal for a period to last one month. You are at risk for developing iron deficiency anemia because of blood loss.

Please get a second opinion from a gynecologist. You need to find out why you are having such irregular menstrual cycles and to have a blood test to see if you are anemic.
