Is what I have the opposite of amenorrhea(absence of

menstruation)?My period started last year in June and

has never been irregular until May 23rd.That was 18

days after my last period.My mom saw nothing wrong.

I told my mom on the 5th that my period has been on

for 12 days and she said it shouldn't be on that long,so she took me to the doctor.They gave me an

ultrasound of my uterus.I'm not pregnant or sexually

active.They didn't find any thing wrong and said to

come back in two weeks and they are going to put me on birth control.Do you have any ideas what this could be?Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

You could be anemic... But I think that the doctors would have seen this. Try not to worry, the doctors will sort you out. If it doesn't get resolved then keep going back until they've found out what is wrong.

Good Luck. x

I used to get really wierd periods when I was about your age, and in fact, they carried on until I was 15 and finally went on the pill. I'd have one massive period which would last sometimes 2 weeks, and then go for like, 2/3 months without one. However, there was apparently nothing wrong, just my hormones going nuts (I looked at it this way - at least my hormones going crazy resulted in something people couldn't see, rather than giving me spots).

When I went onto the pill, they settled down, as your body is given hormones which control when you have a period, and will counteract any imbalance you have. It did make my life much easier.

I hope this turns out ok :)

Tremor agony auntTwo weeks? Aw, that's got to suck.

Because you are only young, it is very likely that your periods will be irregular. Some girls, like you, will have unusually long periods, and others will only get them once every three or four months, like I did. It takes your body a while to get into sync. Since your doctor said there was nothing wrong, I can only assume that this is what it is.

Birth control is a very good way to regulate your periods - these days I can almost time mine down to the hour. I personally am not sure about putting a 10-12 year old on birth control, but that's just me, and I'm very sure your doctor has more training than I, so I woulnd't fret about it too much.

Good luck!
