I don't know how really to explain this appropriately so here goes...My cycle has been getting strange. It's been lasting a little longer and it's "watery"! 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?????!

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.
