    What causes prolonged periods for eight days continuously?

I am 35 years old. Normal ht . Wt 65kg.l had bleeding only for one day for last 7 years. But l had regular periods 28 to 30 days. Last October I had bleeding only half a day. November only spotting. Then after 40 days spotting lasted for 10 days..then bleeding started and continued for 15 days. I changed 4 to 5 pads per day. Then I went to doctor. Scan report is normal study of uterus, ovaries and adnexae. But endometrial thickness is 11mm. She recommended for dnc , but I refused. She gave injection annd tablet for 3 days . bleeding stopped. After 35 days spotting started and lasted for 5 days and started bleeding. This time normal bleeding ,2 to 3 pads per day. But it is continuing even after 8 days. What I have to do now?

Hello,

Bleeding lasting for 7 - 8 days is not that concerning. It could possibly be due to the effect of hormones. If bleeding persists, follow up with your ObGyn.
