Heavy period in teenagers

Common Questions and Answers about Heavy period in teenagers


Avatar f tn Hello, Such heavy intermenstrual bleeding can be due to 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 fibroids and polyps(rare in teenagers). Seek a gynaecologist immediately who will take a careful medical history ,a physical examination, including a pelvic examination. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
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.
Avatar f tn Hi! Once in a while it is ok to have a slightly prolonged or heavy period. However if this persists from cycle to cycle, it can be a cause of concern. One possibility is that it is a miscarriage, if you have a history of unprotected sex. Hence take a pregnancy test and see. If you are miscarrying, it will still be positive.
Avatar n tn then its happen again in march after 1 week off without period. until now it didnt stop...same (light n heavy period one week)...im going to see a doctor tomorrow & i hope everything ok...
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 n tn Why is it accumulating and passing when I would have my period....Maybe I am in a hurry and it will just take more time to stop all together...if not I am going to MAD!!!! Could I still get pregnant??? I asked my doctor this question and he told me not to worry about something like that....Well guess what, if I am still ovulating with my other ovary and there is blood coming form somewhere every month WHY NOT???

Avatar f tn My periods normally last for 4-5 days and are reasonably heavy. I got what I think was my period because it came on the day I was due but it was bright red blood and very very light, i could've used one pad and it wouldn't have been full. It only lasted 2 days and that's it.. I've never had anything like this and I'm worried.. Could I be pregnant or just experiencing a very weird period?

Avatar n tn You both have AIDS and quite possibly SARS. This is quite common in teenagers as they don't practice monogomy. I if in your situation would not seek treatment because aids meds cost about 5 dollars a day so "f" that and go live ure last days up and blow all of your / family's money this is the right thing to do. Also I highly recommend trying to pass this little nuisance to everyone u possibly can after all your dying anyway so who the heck cares. Sincerely, Dr.
Avatar f tn i saw on the news the other day that 1 in 7 teenagers has some sort of an std or sti. so you definately want to keep protected against that.
Avatar f tn The reason your friend said 2 weeks after your period is because in a 28-day-cycle (average for most women) 2 weeks after your period and 14 days before your period are the same day :) But if you have a longer cycle, like 30-31 days, you will be ovulating more like 2weeks and 3 or 4 days after your period starts, which is still 14 days before your period is expected to start again.
Avatar n tn Last month I got my period and me and my boyfriend had sex on the first day of my period. And he nutted in me. And now it's been a month later and I still haven't got my period. And I'm really getting scared. My boyfriend says if anything happens he'll make sure to keep it a secert from my family as long as he can. But I don't know what to do.. I really do not want to get pregnant and can't. Is there anyway you could get pregnant from someone going in you, your first day on it?
Avatar n tn I took several home test and I also had a blood test done this past Wednesday when I was only 14 days late for my period. Could I have tested too early and could I still in fact be pregnant. I am doing no bleeding whatsoever, no spotting or nothing. I have been having some flu like symptoms and queasiness in my stomache with very mild cramps off and on.
Avatar m tn Cannabis Use in Teens Linked to Irreparable Drop in IQ Fran Lowry Apr 26, 2013 ORLANDO, Florida — Cannabis users who start smoking the drug as adolescents show an irreparable decline in IQ, with more persistent use linked to a greater decline, new research shows. On the other hand, adult-onset cannabis use is not linked to a decline in IQ.
389909 tn?1226000452 You are right, a transvaginal ultrasound gives more detailed information about the lining of the uterus and characteristics of the ovaries. However, an abdominal ultrasound is the standard exam in teenagers and does give good information (no tumors present). Fluid in the pelvis on Ct scan can be seen after ovulation. A GI evaluation is reasonable to check for IBS. It must be so hard to watch your daughter have such distress.
Avatar f tn My son is 14 and has started this every single morning, it will be 6or7times before he starts feeling better. He has bad sinuses but we do not think it is that because he has never gotten this sick with it. He plays travel baseball and we had morning games last weekend and he would be on field and when came in he would go behind dugout and vomit. He says it's ruining his life. We have went to doctors several times and ran every test and scheduled for upper GI.
Avatar n tn My apologies but there was an obvious typo in my second sentence. It should read: "I had stringly (almost clot-like) blood in my urine and semen for a period of three days, and then it stopped.
Avatar n tn The best way to describe the sound is like a stomach growling, only in the throat. It's incredibly embarrassing and I can't prevent it from happening. It tends to happen a lot after I drink juice or soda, but also sometimes after meals where I only drank water. Along with the gurgle I feel some light pressure in my lower throat, near my collarbone, like there's air trying to get out (no pain).
Avatar n tn Now my last period was on March 28 and lasted 5 days, just like a regular period with cramps and all. Didn't get a period in April and I got what i thought was my period on May 3rd...but I wasn't due yet to have a period and only lasted 3 days and it was not a normal period,it was light pinkish spotting, but i counted it as a period. After that I've been feeling tired and moody...I took a pregnancy test but it came out negative.
Avatar n tn He said that the scans don't show any cause for this to be happening and it looks like it is curving in rather than the bone thinning in that area. At this point it isn't affecting my brain, so he wants me to repeat the scans in October and come back so he can see if there are any changes. Keep in touch if you find anything out about yours. and feel free to send me a message in my inbox - I have a watch on this post and my inbox and I recieve an email whenever anyone posts to it.
Avatar n tn 5 weeks pregnant but started bleeding lightly last week, then a bit more heavy this weekend, passing a small amount of tissue in the process. I kept one piece that was about 1 inch and in my heart of hearts I think it was the bulk of the fetus. I froze it, as I've read, and gave it to my doctor after the ultrasound he just did. He said he didn't see anything in my uterus and believes I might be in the final stages of a miscarriage.
Avatar n tn I will be EIGHT WEEKS late in 4 days. I've taken 5 urine tests and 2 blood tests. I would say at nearly 12 weeks pregnant at this point, a test would show positive. My period comes every 30-33 days like clock work and i've never missed a period or gone beyond 33 days in the 13 years I've been getting a period. It happens to the most "regular" women out there. Still no period, but i figure it's impossible at this point so I've let it go!
Avatar n tn I'm late on my period haven't taken an test yet last month I really didn't have an period I thought I was coming on, on the 9th of Oct but it was really light pink and it didn't last all day I guess you can say I was spotting it would come down but not alot for a few days then stopped and now we are in Nov and no period should I go ahead and take a test now or should I just wait to see if I come on over the weekend???
568322 tn?1370169040 Studies have shown that insulin resistance starts in childhood.....50% of obese teenagers are insulin resistant. Glucose tolerance deteriorates with age....and if you add the Hep C virus to the mix, your chances of being IR (even if the glucometer doesn't show it) are high. "Second, there have been a number of recent studies suggesting that coffee may have a liver protectant benefit in terms of liver cancer.
Avatar n tn The thinking, which sounds logical to me, is that opiates replace the brain's natural endorphins and the brain stops making them in favor of the opiates. You stop taking the opiates and there's no endorphins waiting in the wings to step in and make you feel OK. So you feel like **** instead. The Lysine is what your brain needs to make more endorphins and other neurotransmitters; the B6 is a catalyst in that process.
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar n tn Yes it is still from whats in us. Think how long we put the **** in us. Keep drinking fluids until your going to burst and eat good to this helps flush our systems out. Get exercise too.. Myself I hate this part but the more we exercise the better we feel.. I hope I helped some it take along time to get our minds and bodies back. But it took along time to get us where were at too.. Hang in there it does get Easier and better over TIME!!!!! Ill be praying for you. God Bless..

"We've got bigger fish to fry," Obama told ABC News' Barbara Walters. "It would not make sense for us to see a top priority as going after recreational users in states that have determined that it's legal.
