Period Won't Stop! 5 Weeks+ HELP!

Posted In: I cannot get a diagnosis. DesireeH | January 18, 2014 | 01:27 AM

I'm only 15-years-old. I'm not sexually active. I'd say I do everything pretty normally.

A week or so ago I got curious about why my period was lasting so long. I'd have clots and would go through a "heavy flow" pad every hour or so. Depending on the day. Anyway I went to the doctor and got an exam. Nothing was wrong. Everything was fine. I got put on a pill that was suppose to regulate me. Had to take one for ten days. I took my last one today and I'm still bleeding. It's let up a little but not too much. I don't know what to do. The doctor said I was fine but I don't think this is fine. I just want it to stop.
