It can be bad to have your period for a long time. I used to get my period for 8 days straight. But I visited a Gynecologist(person who specializes in the "under" area or the vagina) and she recommended me to take Birth Control pills. Some people misunderstand the whole birth control thing. They sometimes think that to take them you have to be sexually active, and that isn't true at all. I started on birth control pills when I was 14 years old and now I'm 16 years old and I'm not sexually active. Birth control pills also have side affects. You can get nausea or headaches from them. So it's good if you experiment with different types of pills. The point of taking them is to shorten your period. My period used to last up to 9 days. And now it's only 6 days :) Make sure to see a doctor if your periods get worse or if your getting blood clots(big chunks of blood).
