i was told that palmetto pills will help the pain. have you asked your mom can you get on birth control pills to regulate your period and stop you from having pains, it also prevents you from having cyst on your ovaries.

you may have hormonal imbalances and have to see a ob/gyn doctor. you have to find out you have amenia for loss of blood. usually iron pills will help you from becoming anemic.

you have something doctor's call menorrhagia. i m going to email you a few websites that tells you why your period is heavy and what you can do about it.
good luck

i have had 10 day periods from the time i started at age 9. i am 37 now and just last year i found out i am severly anemic. i take iron pills and believe me they help take one every day and you will see a difference. and i agree get on the pill make your mother understand that it is for this reason only and in the long run its not a bad idea anyway. i have a 17 year old and from early on i have been very open with him always stressing safe sex. hed be on the pill too if one existed. your mother should respect your maturness to make this decision. i hope this helps you. good luck sweetie

Some girls get heavy periods and cramping pretty much through their menstruating years. The pain can be severe with clotting also. Some get headaches, stomachaches. lots of crazy symptoms. Any pain reliever should help, and heating pads when the cramps get too bad. Birth control is about the only thing that will get rid of those problems for you. You are young, and I don't think they should be an option at this point unless you are sexually active, which I HOPE is not the case. Ask the druggist for some Midol. That might help.

when i was in high school i had a girlfriend who had bad cramps and heavy periods. she said she would take off of work and not go to school, and be in bed in a fetal position in pain.
she said aspirin doesnt help her. just like when i get migraines nothing helps me.
i just hope this young lady can find some relief, because i know how she feels.
