@katb13 Hi and welcome to Connect. I am Carol, a retired teacher of 45 years, and I am a Diabetic 2. I am responding to your post because you are so young to have these problems and in order to know what is going on, I always think seeing a specialist is the best way to start. Do you have a gynecologist? If not, I would check and find one. Do you live at home? Is your mother aware of your situation? If you were older, there might be a reason for the length of your periods; however, as young as you are, you need to see a doctor instead of just trying to outlast the long days and nights of bleeding. I am not a doctor or medically trained, but as a woman, I don't think this is usual for a monthly period. Your Primary doctor or a gynecologist is the person you need to see. They can run some tests and talk with you about your situation and help you get back to normal. Have your periods always been as many days? There could be something simple that is causing your problem. But, whatever is going on, you need to know. I hope you will see a doctor as soon as possible and get some answers. If you feel comfortable sharing, will you let me know what you find out?
Carol

Hello! Yes, I talked to my mom about it so she is aware. Unfortunately I do not live at home since I'm at college, but it's only 2 hours away which isn't that bad. I definitely will be checking to find a gynecologist to talk to. My last one lasted 11 days so that is why I'm worrying a little more. Usually they aren't this long. And of course! Thank you!!
