My period seems to be refusing to end. I had a similar problem about a year ago. My menstrual bleeding lasted for an entire month. In the beginning, the flow was regular for about 5 days as usual. Then for the next few weeks, I had a slow and continuous light flow that was light-ish red to brown in color. However, after intercourse, I would find that there was a pronounced amount of red blood present. The flow would then return to the slow light flow.

It was extremely stressful, and it seems as if it is happening yet again. I am not feeling any pain at all, and am not feeling ill or in any other way impaired. I searched the internet for some sort of idea of what was happening, but unfortunately you can never find anything specific anywhere, even from this website. So I wanted to throw this question out there to see if anyone has had the same crappy experience I am having.

I'm ashamed to say that I am far too freaked out by doctors to ever go to a gynecologist. I would just like someone to share if they have had the same experience so I can feel at ease.
