Longer Period Than Normal?

Edited , 2 users are following.

I'm trying not to panic about this because I'm so often inclined to worry. I'm 23 years old and I've been on my period since the 22nd/23rd of June. Maybe that doesn't seem very long to people, but my periods have been pretty regular - length-wise - the last three years. Almost all of the blood as been brown and there have been a lot of small clots. Initially, I thought it was just old blood, as my period was kind of late in June. But the flow has been light to medium but steady (to the point that I haven't even really had to wear a pad), stayed brown, and the small clots have continued to be present. I've had no cramps, which is unusual for me. There is truly no possibility that I could be pregnant. I'd really like to avoid going to the doctor (as I'm sure many would with the state of the world right now), but I have no clue what any of this could mean.
