Period For Two Weeks: Find Out the Causes

Too Long Period

The normal duration of the woman period is a few days and up to a week. Of course, there is a lot of individuality in this, too, but you should definitely pay attention if your period suddenly becomes longer than it usually is. If I’ve had my period for two weeks, I would definitely be worried because it is not normal for me. Some women usually have very long period and this might not be something new for them but this still is not a normal condition and you should take measures soon.


The gynecologist is the specialist to whom you should address the questions “Can you have your period for two weeks?”, “Is it normal to have a period for two weeks?” and “Why have I been on my period for two weeks?”, if you want to receive the best answers. Your organism is unique and your prolonged menstruation could be caused by a condition which is not common and easy to recognize.

Causes of Prolonged Menstrual Bleeding

This condition is called menorrhagia and it might be caused by several factors:

  • Unsuitable birth control therapy;
  • Dysfunctional uterine bleeding;
  • Pregnancy;
  • Uterine fibroids;
  • Endometrial hyperplasia;
  • Problems with clotting;
  • Thyroid function problems;
  • Glandular issues;
  • Infections;
  • Cancer;
  • Bleeding disorders and others.

As you see, there might be a very serious reason for your condition, so it is essential to consult a doctor. Only after checking your condition, the specialist will be able to suggest the reason and advise you what therapy should be started. Your problem will then be solved with the appropriate medications or a surgery, but you should not try to guess your condition and/or prescribe yourself a therapy because the result might be really bad for you. Only a specialist could give explanation for your period for two weeks and help you cope with the problem.
