    If you don't like descriptions of periods be warned.
    So on April 23rd(ish) I had my normal, scheduled period. It was, however, a LOT lighter than normal (dry and brown, not bloody :\), but I shrugged it off. Then, May 9th I had an abnormally heavy period, about 15 days before it should be due. Then, May 31 I started having signs of another period, and now (2nd June) it is INCREDIBLY heavy, to the point where about 3 times I've nearly passed out (I've never had a problem like this before, and I have 0 fear of blood so it's not that). Also intense cramps all day. I should mention my periods have been regular for about 3 years now.
    I've also had about 6-8 unexplained bruises this month (and one where I know i bashed myself but it normally wouldn't bruise), I've been very very tired (although is is exams, who isn't) and I've been getting unusual amounts of head rush/lightheadedness when standing up sometimes (blood loss?).
    I'm 15 if that helps.
    Is it worth visiting a GP, or is it probably nothing?

    I would go to the doctors just to be on the safe side if i was you x

    Go to the GP, at least then, if it's nothing, you'll feel comfort in knowing that, otherwise you'll probably be worrying about this for a while..

    If you notice any changes with your periods (which you have), then I'd definitely recommend getting it checked out by a doctor just to check it isn't anything serious
