    I'm not quite sure where to post this, admins feel free to move to the correct topic if need be.

    Hello,

    This question is about about my younger sister.
    Shes 14 years old and shes had her period for 2 months now.
    Being a terrible/suck up teenager that she is, she's refusing to go to the doctors.
    Has anyone else experienced this?
    What could it be?
    Should be just drag her to the doctors?

    Thanks ladies x

    Take her down there just to be sure- 2 months is a long time to be bleeding- could have under lying health problems!

    I know when I was 14 it wasn't going to the docs about that stuff that was the issue- it was talking to a complete stranger in front of parents etc about it

    Approach it sensitively-and if need be tell her you'll go with her.... She may be more forthcoming

    I had a 3 week period a few years ago and was given tranexamic acid to stop it before I became anaemic. She needs to see Dr ASAP.

    It could be a number of things but it does need to be checked out sooner rather than later. My friend had continuous periods like this growing up and they got worse and worse and longer and longer and then she suddenly stopped having periods altogether for 6 months. I can't remember what her problem was called but they told her she may never have kids - funnily enough she is now 6 months pregnant but it is better to get these things sorted early x

    Agreed, if she is bleeding that heavily for this long she may be very anaemic by now so it is best to get it sorted, especially in this heat with it being so hot and easy to get dehydrated I am sure that won't help her feel great either x

    A and e is a little extreme I think- you should have booked an emergency appointment with your gp...

    No wonder the nurse got funny -

    I don't know the phone numbers of any GB, plus my parents are away too, and I doubt they would let me make one as I'm not her parent? I don't know. My patents just keep leaving it so I've taken it apon myself to get this sorted.

    when I was that age I would have 40 day cycles and my AF would last 15 days and be very very heavy! and I thought that was long! so af for 2 months is not good- she really does need to see a doctor - surely it's getting her down by now - she's probably more shy/embaressed to be going to the doctor about periods I know I didn't like it much = but I was given medication to make my bleeding less and shorter.

    hope she gets it sorted.

    I had this. Awful irregular periods where they wouldn't appear for months on end and then would turn up seemingly all in one go. They gradually got better as I got older to the point where it would be just the case of missing a few here and there but not very often.

    I know she's 14 but is she on any contraceptive such as the injection? Because I do know from various friend's accounts that they had ongoing periods whilst on them etc.

    After all of that she refuses to take a blood text and the problem has miraculously stopped. We've got a hunch that she was just attention seeking.
