Hi. I have been experiencing periods lasting anywhere from two weeks and one moth for some time now. I have been to the doctor and I have had an ultrasound but I appear to be fine. I don't know why this is happening. It isn't extremely heavy and there are not a lot of clots but it is irritating. No one in my family has dealt with this issue. Any help would be much appreciated. [Smile]

HI IHeartDappy and welcome to Scarleteen!

This sounds incredibly frustrating.

Since the ultrasound didn't show any problems, did your doctor say what it could be or suggest any treatment?

It sure is! Lol. She basically just told me to "wait it out." I got the impression that if it doesn't stop on its own I'll have to take BC.

Have you seen this article, IHeartDappy: On the Rag? It talks a little about taking vitamin suppliments towards the end that might help with this? Also, it has some info on the other ways to manage periods - other than disposable pads or tampons - that might help make your periods a little easier.
