For background I started getting my period maybe around the age of 11. I had extremely heavy periods that would last longer than average and then come back again in two weeks or sometimes shorter so my doctors put me on birth control at the age of 12 because they were afraid it would lead to health issues. In February of 2018 (Age 1Cool I went off birth control and my periods were normal up until around July 2018 when they started to become more frequent and heavier again. (Age 19) then in October (14-1Cool I had my period but didn’t get another period until 23rd of December! (Took pregnancy tests and was neg on everyone of them). And now I have my period again but heavier than I’ve experienced it ever before besides when I was so young. Is this something worth the trip to the doctors or no?
