My 13 year daughter will be 13 in about 6 weeks, She has been having her period for about 10 months now. this month she has been on her period for two weeks. even though there is little flow... I am concerned. Help
At the onset of menses, it is typical for the bleeding to be light and irregular. If she remains abnormal every month, you might want to see a physician. It is not uncommon to start young girls on hormonal birth control to control the cycles either.
