Heavy period in teenagers

Common Questions and Answers about Heavy period in teenagers


Avatar f tn To make it worse, the heavy flow lasts a long time, though I generally only get cramps right at the beginning of my period. The heavy flow can last a week and a half (during which I have to do heavy duty tampon AND pad at the same time, changing them 2-3 times a day) then it turns into a drizzle for the last few days/week. I want to get rid of the horrible, painful and ridiculously heavy period. I'm considering going on birth control because maybe it's a hormone thing.
1729804 tn?1310023728 Blood just showed up in my underwear for about 2-3 days. I thought it was my period or something. The most part is that, I never had my period before I am 13 and scared. I'm afraid I will never get my period. I do not know if it could be a symptom of a period or whatever. I so afraid, it happened about 5 months ago and never happened again. Could somebody please just give me answers cause I am so afraid I won't ever get my period. Please Help!!!
Avatar f tn He was grinding on me, like pressing his penis into mine with his underwear on. On April, I had my period. Normal flow, normal color, with the usual heavy blood clots, normal duration. No symptoms of pregnancy. On April 23, we went to the pool and had some grinding there too but I was wearing my bikini and some swimming shorts and he had shorts on too and the water had chlorine in it. Now it's May 11, I started my period on May 7. BUT IT WAS LIGHTER THAN NORMAL.

Avatar m tn "Dangers: The “game” has lethal consequences. Brain damage or permanent neurological disabilities due to the lack of oxygen is a possibility and each year is responsible for a large number of juvenile deaths." --Michele Borba, Ed.D. So, to answer your question: Yes. Absolutely. It's every bit as dangerous as drugs and alcohol. This quote is about the choking game.
Avatar m tn Other causes can be hormonal imbalance(can be due to PCOS),hypothyroidism,cigarette smoking or underlying Chlamydia infection while on birth control,ectopic pregnancy,miscarriage after pregnancy and ficroids and polyps(rare in teenagers). If you have started using patch recently,then wait for some time.If the repeat happens,then pls get yourself evaluated by a gynecologist. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn Thiz time, I am on day 7 of heavy bleeding_ gushes in the toilet when I pee, and smelling strange esp today. No fever, or cramps. A lot of bloating and gas. I had a baby 10 weeks ago, is it possible my body is going through changes from the birth still? I have an overall healthy record, no diseases, or infections....although this could be one, have to go to dr. Soon ...I have lost my appetite and without coffee, I swear I could sleep all day!
Avatar m tn Recently, I've noticed 8-9 floaters. Should I be worried? Is it going to get worse? From what I've read, floaters in younger people are located in the premacular bursa but what exactly causes it?

Avatar n tn Hi, I'm 47 and i having problems like yours. For the 2-3cycles my bleeding period last for 22days.I was worried and went to my Gyne.I told him all my symptoms and was controlled,had paptest plus transvaginal ultransound and found out that my uterine wall is 27mm thick. Endometrial hyperplasia is the right term for uterine thickening.hearing those complicated medical terms..I went panicking and had crying crisis. My fear is too high coz my mom died of breast cancer.
Avatar f tn I gave birth 3 months ago and got my first period the second month after birth it lasted 5 days now 2 weeks later I have a heavy period.I have to change pad every 1-2 hours.I also have lower back pain and abdominal pain.Is this normal?
Avatar f tn right now though im on my period, the first 2 days were really light with hardly any cramps (didnt need to take tylenol or anything) and now its the 3rd day and its really heavy (well, heavy for me, so heavier than it normally is even the first day or two) but i still have no cramps... is it normal that its heavier on the 3rd day? and is it normal that i usually have cramps but this time i hardly feel them even though my period is heavier?
Avatar m tn Having a heavy period is normal, drink lots of water, try walking for 30 min everyday and just remember to change when you need to
1416390 tn?1333901604 I found a website that talks about heavy periods. I hope that it shows up in this post, because MedHelp usually deletes links. womenshealth.about.
Avatar m tn Hi Joey, odd name for a mum, he can start by doing weight lifting, and lots of heavy work outs, for him the safest thing for his age would be Tribulus as its just a herb and would take around 8 weeks to get to full power. But just get lifting weights in a gym, and he or you need to tell his trainer why and what its for, and let them work on him.
Avatar m tn I fingered my girlfriend for 4 days straight. Shes supposed to have her period in a week but It started now, 1 week early. Is this a sign of pregnancy? Im so worried, were teenagers and we dont know much about these things.
Avatar n tn He had no memory as to putting them there. Yesterday I put in some laundry and then later put my clothes in the dryer. I left the house. He then came home and did his laundry and when it came time to dry them he took my clothes out and put them in a basket without folding or hanging some of it up. I came in and asked who did that and he swore it wasn't him. I knew it wasn't me nor my wife so that left him. He swore up and down that he didn't do it.
1681883 tn?1332961338 I had my period my period on the 9th and had it for a week. Me and my boyfriend have sex almost everyday and sometimes unprotected but we want a baby. So yesterday and today I have been spotting a light red and its not every time I go to the bathroom. I also have been javing pains in my lower stomach area...
Avatar f tn I just started the nuva ring and my gyno highly recommends it. She said they use it all the time in teenagers your age. You only have to worry about changing it once a month and you don't have to get a period with it (or you can if you want) I've noticed a significant difference already in my mood and my appetite seems to be going down. Plus it's the lowest dose of medicine you can get and still 99.9% effective.
Avatar m tn I started my period the 13 of June and it has been so heavy i couldn't go 45 minutes without going to the bathroom. i am still on it but its not as heavy, but still not normal..I am 19 a virgin and my periods are normally only 5-7 days..
Avatar f tn Hello, my period was between 4 and 5 days late this month and is super heavy for me. I haven't been nauseous, or noticed any breasts pain but felt a little dizzy/foggy for a day. I also noticed a drop or two of clear liquid from my breast if they are squeezed and I have never had any breast discharge. I have had some uncomfortable cramping but not anything terrible. Could I be pregnant? Or what is going on?
Avatar n tn s what got me through that period of life. Unfortunately my depression came back in my mid twenties. Sometimes these depressions are chemical imbalances. So see that doc, and have a chat.
Avatar f tn Most likely - and somewhere in their room are two towels or wash cloths that are in desperate need of being washed. Relieve some of their anxiety - and some of yours - by telling both of them that, if they are "spunking", you're not going to alert the newspapers and radio stations or have them arrested for doing something entirely normal for teenagers but it isn't healthy for them not to clean whatever it is they're using to wipe themselves off afterwards.
