Irregular period
Hi Doc,

I have been menstruating for 3 weeks,which is most unusual because I normally menstruate for a week.In that period bleeding has stopped for 1 full day.When bleeding stopped for that day.we have tried having intercourse but penetration seemed impossible.I am a newly wedded for a week and have never had sex.I am experiencing heavy burning sensations and discomfort.I'm currently on Marvelon and have been for the last four months.Please advise me as to what action I need to take to resolve these issues.Is what I'm experiencing normal or something to be concerened about?

This does not sound normal. It may be a hormonal disturbance or some trauma from intercourse. I would suggest that you see your gynaecologist.
