No, this is not normal and you should speak with your doctor
. There are many potential explanations for prolonged or abnormal menstrual bleeding
, and you need to determine what is the cause for yours. There are several conditions that can affect the lining of the uterus and can result in prolonged or increased menstrual bleeding. There are other conditions in which benign tumors of the uterus can intermittently bleed and cause symptoms similar to what you are describing. There are also causes such as trauma, which you do not describe but can obviously result in bleeding as well. In some other situations, the lining or mucosa of the vaginal and cervical regions can be affected by viruses or other causes that can lead to an increased tendency for the mucosa to bleed. In the worst scenarios, this can even be an early sign of changes that can lead to cancer. Given that there is such a wide range of possible explanations, it is important to speak with your doctor to make sure that you are well and find an answer to your problem. Please speak with your OB or your primary care doctor
soon to get the help you need.
