No my normal period was on 12/21/13. On january 10 i started the light pink/brown discharge. It has been continuous since then with only 2 days it completely stopped. My periods come every 27-30 days and last about 7 days with heavy cramping from endometreosis. I generally havw heavy cramping, clotting, and bleeding. Ive never had this before.

Brief Answer: possibilities Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for additional information. I suggest following are possibilities for continuous bleeding and treatment options : 1. Please rule out pregnancy by doing serum beta hCG. Unknown pregnancy or abortion could lead to such bleeding. 2. If endometrioma is large it needs to be operated and removed. 3. Get scan to rule out fibroids. Let me know if you have any more questions Regards
