Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Bleeding for three weeks is not normal and don't accept any health care professional who tells you it is. We have spoken to many women who have been dismissed by doctors this way.

You may have fibroids - uterine fibroids are benign (noncancerous) growths in the wall of the uterus. The uterus is the reproductive organ where a fetus grows. Fibroids often grow into the uterine cavity. In rare cases, they may protrude from the uterus toward nearby organs. Fibroids may be very small or may grow to eight or more inches in diameter. Usually more than one fibroid is present. About 20%-30% of women of childbearing age, and as many as half of all women, have fibroids. Many do not realize it. Most do not have symptoms until their late 30s or 40s. Symptoms include pain and very heavy or long term bleeding.

You may have cyst or hormonal disorder - testing or scans will let you know more. Please schedule an appointment.
