I started bleeding a week before my period and it has been going on for 10 days now. It's like heavy spotting, one moment I'm fine and a few hours later I'm having almost a heavy flow that slows down to nothing then starts back up again a few hours later. I really don't have any cramps but I didn't have really bad cramps on days two and three. Those days were more like regular periods. I have been on birth control for the last our years but the last few months I haven't taken as well as I should have. I know I don't have any STD's so that's out of the question. I am not sure if I should go to the doctor or wait it out. I don't think I've ever had an early period before and it's kinda scary its lasting this long because this has never happened before either. Please help!View Thread
