Hello everyone,

I too have been experiencing a prolonged period. My period started mid-February. I went to the doctor after two weeks of bleeding and prescribed birth control pills. I am 35 without children. My periods prior to this lasted about 4-5 days maximum. I am very concerned. I requested an ultrasound but the doctor won’t order it until I try the birth control for 3 mos. Needless to say, it’s almost a month later and I am still bleeding using about 3 tampons per day. Along with bleeding, I have been experiencing bloating, pelvic pressure, along with some discomfort on my left side. The doctor seems to think it may be a cyst. This is very draining. I pray my body heals. God help us all. I feel like the woman with the issue of blood in the Bible. I never knew her pain until now. I have been reading up on this and its horrible reading about the women who have dealt with this for years. My heart aches for them. I pray that everyone here be healed. <3
