Hey
I'm really concerned because I got my period almost two weeks ago (July 12th) and I still have it!
It's July 24 and I still have my period, I don't know what's wrong but it's almost been two weeks and I'm scared because I don't know what's happening to my body....

Was this your first period, hott13?

If not, what have your periods been like overall? How long have you had them? And are you or have you been sexually active? Any other symptoms?

No it's not my first period i got it like 3 years ago.

Overall, my periods last 5-6 days sometimes seven. I've never ever had sex I'm still a virgin.
No I don't have any other symptoms, I'am on Antibiotics because I had a virus last week...could that have anything to do with it?

So, no kind of genital sex at all?

And this is the only time this has happened? Are you having any big cramping with it? is the flow really heavy, still?

Also, antibiotics aren't generally prescribed for a virus, because they can't do anything about viruses: they're prescribed for infections or to prevent infections. Do you know what exactly you had?

Nope, no genital sex at all.

this is the only time also...I have no cramps or anythings, and a light/mild flow.

And the doctor never told me exactly what I had I was just really sick... fever, headache, weakness. I thought it was like the flu or some virus that was being passed around..and I caught

Hrm.

Okay, well, given you aren't having any other symptoms with this right now, I'd not sweat this too much.

However, given you don't know what you had around the same time this started, I would call your doctor and report this to them, just in case it has anything to do with your earlier symptoms.
