Long period Watch

I know TSR is not the best place to this but I need some advice and am asking if anyone else has suffered similar.

I have been on my period for 26 days so far. I was like a week late so didn’t really take any notice when it went a few days over initially. However it hasn’t stopped. It is now light and hasn’t given me any other symptoms. I know I should probably go to the doctors but I’m embarrassed to broach it (I haven’t even told my Mum) and I’m terrified of blood tests- I know they are not bad, I have had one before but the thought of them gives me a lump in my throat.

My question is if I leave it, because I’m feeling absolutely fine would that give me any adverse affects later? Or would it like fade away? I’m thinking it could just be a hormone imbalance or something so perhaps it’s not serious at all. I’m defo not pregnant nor am I on any contraceptives. Has anyone suffered anything similar?

How old are you and how long have you been getting your period? It's likely just your hormones going a bit out of whack. You could pop to a pharmacist and ask them for advice and they'll let you know if you should see your doctor.

I’m 18 and have had my period since I was around 12/13. I never thought of going to the pharmacy, maybe I’ll do that

Go straight to your GP, that's what the pharmacist will tell you to do.
