    I had something similar to this happen to me a few months after I started taking birth control. My period lasted for almost 2 weeks. I ended up going to the ER because of it. They said it was just because of my birth control and my body getting use to it. It is def a good idea for you to talk to your doctor about it though just to be on the safe side. You can never be to sure about things like that.

    You need to see a doctor/GYN if you do not have insurance, is there a free clinic or planned parenthood you can go to?
