Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Menstrual bleeding a period that lasts from three to seven days. Prolonged menstrual bleeding, or menorrhagia, is bleeding that goes beyond a week.

Typically prolonged bleeding is a condition that can be easily controlled with birth control hormones. However, since you are currently on birth control pills, I would recommend making an appt with the doctor that prescribed them. You might need to change the brand or explore other options.

Call your doctor and explain your symptoms so they can give you direction.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
