My period has always been a bit irregular mostly just skipping a couple of months which I've gotten use to. This month it started out light but was fairly consistent. It seemed to last the usual time for me, about 7 days and two days later it came back and was a little heavier. It's now going on 3 weeks and while it's back to being a lighter flow it still hasn't really stopped. The last time something like this happened was back in April and it pretty much lasted for the whole month. I moved from New York to New Hampshire in May and I still don't have Medicaid yet which is why I haven't seen a doctor. My main concern is the fact that I have very little energy which I think is a result of this prolonged period. I recently started watching what I eat to help me lose weight but now I'm wondering if that's such a good idea at this particular time. I'm not sure how to keep my energy levels up while not straying too far off course with my "diet"View Thread
