I am 16 years old and I am not sexually active (nor have I ever been). I have been on my period for now 5 weeks, and it is sometimes ridiculously heavy and there are days where it is significantly lighter, However recently it is just heavy all the time. I have previously had several problems with my period before, with it being long and ridiculously heavy. To control that I was put on birth control. I have been to a doctor and they switched my birth control but that is pretty much it. Any suggestions or ideas on what could possibly be happening? I have heard that this is possible "mennorhagia metro" but nothing has been fully 100% diagnosed. All help and thoughts are appreciated. Thank you.

    If you've been to a doctor, and it has continued, go back again!

    Anything more than 10 days is very unusual, more than 2 weeks means there is something wrong.
