18 days of Vaginal Bleeding!?

My girlfriend has informed me that she was sick a while back, and during the sickness she experienced 18 days straight of vaginal bleeding.. I hadn't heard of it every lasting that long, and haven't found anything on a website. Her dad lost his job and she's in college, no insurance, so she never saw a doctor. I know she had severe depression and a couple sexual partners during a low point in her life, but I didn't know if this could be STD related? Or just an infection that she was sick with? I don't know, but would like some help, thanks!

Re: 18 days of Vaginal Bleeding!?

It could be anemia. Vitamin/mineral deficiencies can prevent blood from clotting.

Is she feeling well now? How long ago was this?

In New York state, there is a program that provides FREE sexual health care to low-income residents. It's much easier to get than Medicaid. She can go to her local Planned Parenthood to get checked out and find out if she is eligible.
