Bleeding at mensesoccurs due to shedding of the uterine lining. Mostly it is shed over 3-5 days but at times it may be shed over longer days. This happens due to immaturity of the lining due to hormone disturbance or as a result of some medicines or infection or hormone disorder or ovarian cyst. She needs an urgent evaluation by gynec to - Rule out infection - Rule out pregnancy is she is sexually active - Do sonography to rule out cyst etc So the best bet would be to consult a local gynec

Hello There. I can understand your concern. is she sexually active ? did she take any medicines? such things need to be examined and some tests like a ultrasound needs to be carried out to understand what is wrong. kindly take her to a gynaecologist As Soon As Possible and get her checked out in person. cannot suggest any medicines without examining such a case. best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain

It's a sign of hormone imbalance if pregnancy is ruled out. Please  read my blog on PCOS. Hope that helps.
