long period
An_249216 posted:
I am 43 yr old. I always have a regular period, however, this month I been having period that last more than 20 days. The first 2 weeks it discharged dark brown blood and now it has become red. I started having cramp on my right side of my abdomen and it runs down to my right leg. I also have painful nipples, sour taste in my mouth and chills running along my upper spine. Does anyone has ever experienced any symptom like this? Please give me some advice.

You are not having a 20 day menstrual period. You are experiencing abnormal vaginal bleeding due to some issue that has nothing to do with menstruation.

It would be a very good idea to contact your gynecologist to get this abnormal bleeding looked into medically.
