Are you still helping me?

I am sorry for the delay, I was in an emergency.Bleeding for 3 weeks worries me. Dark color indicates old blood. I am more worried for 3 weeks of bleeding.The cause can be varied. Before putting it on contraceptive device I would like to rule out - abnormality at the uterus - fibroid/ ovarian lesion like cyst. I would get ultrasound for pelvis to get more answers.As of now - You need to stay hydrated/ have balanced diet, more of green vegetables would help to avoid anemia {secondary to excess bleeding}.Wish you well.Best
