Irregular extended period

I'm 19 years old, I've had implants for 2-1/2 years. Recently my periods are starting to e around three weeks long and I only get a week or so break before the next one starts. I've been losing some weight, so I thought maybe that was the problem but I started again today and my blood is dark red and thick, like there's mucus in it or something. I don't know what to do and I don't have insurance or the money to go to the doctors. I need advice and this is really making me nervous.

Unfortunately, no one on an internet board can tell you what's going on. Bleeding for 3 weeks is definitely not normal and needs to be checked out by a doctor. Look for a Planned Parenthood in your area; they offer low-cost gynecological services.
