    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

It's still bloody but it's like it's watered down...It's weird and I dont know if I expressing it correctly but is this something to be concerned about?????!

    Jane Harrison Hohner, RN, RNP responded:
    Dear Whoa_as_me: If your flow is now lasting longer than seven days, that would be considered out of the normal range. A more "watery" flow MIGHT be caused by a number of things including: mixing with increased vaginal discharge, an infection, or a problem with the lining of the uterus. The only way to know for sure is to see a GYN or your local family planning clinic. They can give you an answer after checking your age, risks for abnormal cells of the uterine lining, etc.

    Yours,
    Jane
