one of my friends told me she's been on her period for two weeks. her normal period usually lasts about 5 days.
she's 13 and started having periods when she was about 11.
I told her to go see a doctor but she doesn't want to.

Can anyone help?

You were right when you suggested she see a doctor. Two weeks of steady bleeding is cause for concern and she needs to get it checked out. Are her parents aware of the situation? Why doesn't she want to go to a doctor?
