Long period
andersonk81110 posted:
My periods are usually 3-5 days. My last period lasted two weeks. During my period i got dizzy spells, headaches, and had odd blood clots that looked a little purple tinted. As I said, it lasted two weeks and just stopped today. Should I contact my doctor anyways or just let it go?

It is not normal for a period to last two weeks. The question that needs to be asked is whether this represents a menstrual period or abnormal vaginal bleeding due to some other medical issue that has nothing to do with menstruation.

Your dizziness and headaches are also a concern and a possible symptom of anemia from all of this this blood loss.

Yes; it would be a good idea to make an appointment with your gynecologist.
