    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.

    Extended period concerns
    An_256851 posted:
    I have had my period for the last 9 days. I always have a weak first day and a strong second day that continues for about 5 to 7 days at the most. but it has continued still steady to the ninth day now and is not showing any signs of letting up. as well as my chest is still extremely tender. im concerned if i should just allow it to run its course or if this is something i should be concerned about and make an appointment to see a doctor. if there is any advice or possible options that would be out there, that would be of great help

    Bleeding that lasts longer than 7 days is not normal and should be checked out by a doctor.
