Have you just started a new form of birth control or is there any chance you could be pregnant (if you're having sex... the answer is yes)? Call the doctor to get checked out.

This happened to me once I bled for a month straight finally the light bleeding turned into the normal heavy flow and it hasn't happened again since and this was 2 years ago. I did make an appointment but by the time they got me in everything was cleared up and done. The nurse practitioner still had me take a blood test to see if I miss carried but it came back negative.



I would still try to get in to see a doctor or nurse practitioner if it will get you in faster, I told them I didn't care who I saw just get me in.

Yeah, so did I until I had been bleeding 'weird' for over a week and my NP told me to take a test and it was positive right away... I was miscarrying.



Bleeding for 18 days is definitely a reason to go to the doctor...

no i dont use birth control, how can be pregnant when im bleeding, i have been trying 2 half years with my husband for a baby but never had any luck, so i ruled out pregnancy straight away x
