Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 2 years ago.
It's unusual that a young woman with regular periods would get prolonged bleeding such as you have. Usually that kind of bleeding would occur when periods have been irregular for a while, which can result in a buildup of the uterine lining that then results in prolonged bleeding.
I would recommend that you see your doctor for evaluation. Perhaps you have a polyp or some other growth that is causing the bleeding.
Often prolonged bleeding is the result of hormonal changes, and can be easily treated using hormones, such as the birth control pill. If your doctor finds no other cause for the bleeding, that's what will probably be suggested. It will likely clear up the bleeding fairly quickly. Otherwise it could go on and on. Best wishes.
