Hello,

I would recommend that you see your gynecologist for this.

You will probably benefit from a course of a progesterone to help stop the bleeding

Has this been a recurring problem or is it a more isolated incident of this prolonged bleeding ?

I hope that this is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback

Thank you and Best Regards,

Anthony Bray MD

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
