    I have been bleeding for over a month
    thefatdiplomat posted:
    On average, I have a 9 day period every two to three months. The last doctor I visited said this was perfectly normal for someone my age, size, and level of activity and that I should really only worry if I start having periods really close together.

    Well, in September, I had a twelve day period. For two weeks after, I spotted with some pretty gross clots. Then I started a second full period. It has been going on for two weeks now.

    I don't know if I should be worried and because I don't have insurance, I'm leery about going to the doctor for something that might be nothing. Any advice?

    Bleeding for over a month is not nothing and should be checked out by a doctor.
