You should probably call your OB-gyne as this might be a symptom of an illness. Having 2 weeks menstruation is not normal, you should get yourself checked. - J. Kale Flagg

Hi Anonymous,

I am sorry to hear that you are having long periods. This is not that uncommon though. Women are very different and have different short or long periods. You indicated that you are on birth control? This wouldn't be so common as birth control usually regulates your periods. Go back to your doctor as you may need to change the strength of your birth control pills. Good luck.
