Hello Nor Aini, Thank you for the question.
Normal menstruation occurs for 2-7 days with menstrual cycles between 21-35 days. Menstruation that has occurred for 3 weeks is known in medical language as menorrhagia. Menorrhagia can be caused by a number of the following conditions:
polycystic ovary syndrome
uterine polyps or cervical polyps
You should not wait any longer, please consult your obstetrician and gynecologist immediately for further examination. In addition to knowing your complaints and menstrual history and other gynecological history, your doctor also needs to do an examination on you such as blood or ultrasound examination. After knowing your medical condition, your doctor can determine the next treatment for you.
Please keep you rested enough, consume lots of nutritious food, and consume water at least 2 liters per day. Also avoid physical activity that is too heavy.
Hopefully this information is useful.
