Bleeding for 9 days

Hi there...I'm wondering if anyone has any experience of this.

I came off the pill a few years ago and my periods bounced back to regular, heavy, painful periods.

Then last year, I had a little bit of mid-cycle bleeding. I had a smear and ultra-sound and everything was fine.

Two months ago, I didn't get a period. Then I got it on time the next month but it came again 1.5 weeks later and I'm still bleeding on Day 9. The doctor said it's 'dysfunctional bleeding' and I need to see a gynecologist but not to worry until the gynecologist gives me the once-over.

Have any of you experienced this? I'm 39 years of age and haven't had any DCs yet.

Last year I had a 16 day bleed. My cycles are irregular anyway (TTC but no DH) but the extra long period was just seen as a strange anomaly and nothing to worry about (they were more concerned about iron levels/fatigue etc). I’ve had a few around 10/14 days length since and they don’t cause any problems apart from frustration!
