Long period while TTC?

I am going on day 9 of my period. This is our 6th month of "not trying, but not preventing". I have never had a period this long before. It is usually between 5 and 6 days at the most. How long should I wait before I worry about this? It doesn't seem to be letting up at all either...

Mine was like that last month, it did stop though. it just seemed to just keep coming and was totally abnormal, much heavier than usual as well. I would think if it goes on for more than 10 days and doesn't start getting lighter you should def see your doc.

Did you take provera or anything to start up your cycle? Like PP said regaurdless I would call the Dr. after 10days of no slowing. SS you are having to deal with the hag so long. Praying all is well.

It's not necessarily having a long irreg period that's a problem, but if you're bleeding fairly heavily for that long you could become anemic.

Nope, I haven't taken anything. This just is totally abnormal for me. I am actually still a little bit crampy even tonight. I guess I'll call the doctor tomorrow and see what they say. Hopefully it's just one of those weird things that happens and it's not something else...

I had a strange AF this last cycle, and ended up here now. AF wasn't heavy the whole time, there were days of spotting and even one day of nothing in the middle, but all in all it lasted 13 days.

Something like that happened to me before. I'm actually on CD7 with red bleeding still, even though it's not much. Usually it lasts 5-6 days for me. Several months ago I had bleeding that lasted about two weeks, but not heavy. Just kind of brownish, little bit of red. I never went to the doctor bc I didn't have insurance.. so I have no idea what caused it.

I called and talked to a nurse this morning and she didn't seem concerned. It is the same today. It's red and it's not spotty, it's regular flow. She said she would leave a note for the other doctor in the office (mine is gone till Tuesday) and see if she wanted to do anything about it and I haven't heard back from them yet. If it was starting to be brown or slow down I wouldn't worry about it so much, but it's not slowing down at all.
