i am a 14 year old girl and on my period right now.. it hurts really bad, more than usual. My headaches have gotten extreme and my back and stomach hurt too. I am also feeling nauseous. i used to have my periods regularly, at the end of the month. but two months ago it changed. I now have it almost every week and it seems as i it never stops. My last period was a week ago ad the one before that was about 5 days after spring breaks and the one before that was on Spring break. I have been taking meds but they don't work, and it hurts really bad. Can someone please help? I dont know what to do....
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The exact cause for the prolonged and altered bleeding can be made out by going ahead with thorough evaluation and further investigations. Causes like endometritis, endometriosis, hormonal imbalances, thyroid abnormalities, anemia, bleeding disorder, vitamin deficiencies, endometrial hyperplasia, etc should be looked for. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation and assistance. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms and regulate your periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
