I'm headed to my doctor on Tuesday. I have been bleeding for over 13 Weeks.  I had finger-like growths removed August of 2010 and this was the first since then.  I would suggest seeing a doctor ASAP.  It is never good for that long of a time.  I will let you know what my doctor says and whats going on and maybe it can give you some help as to a possibility in what your experiencing but I would definitely go see a doctor.

What you are having is menorrhagia. Causes of menorrhagia are hormonal imbalance, fibroids(benign (non-cancerous) tumors that often occur in the uterus of women during their thirties or forties), uterine cysts(ovarian cysts) and polyps(cervical or endometrial.They are small, fragile,non cancerous growths in the cervix or uterus), some forms of cancer and certain medications. Intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUD’s) and pelvic inflammatory disease may also lead to excessive bleeding.

In my opinion, physical and pelvic examination along with blood tests and ultrasound pelvis are required to make a diagnosis.

I hope it helps. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
