    No I started when I was 9. I had that thing when I was 12 or 13.
    Okay then, that was my whole point. simple case of misunderstanding

    It was normal for you to have irregular period at that age, since the cycles doesn't become regular till 2 years (avg) after it's beginning. this can be longer if it starts at an early age.

    You had that before you even reached menarche? i.e. before you even began having your periods? Thats odd.

    also not having period for about 3 months after reaching menarche is considered amenorrhoea ( secondary amenorrhoea to be exact) and yes it is normal in the first coupld of years to be irregular but i wouldnt say no need to get it checked out.

    The best way I can explain it, is probably the when it's periods, I always have awful stomach cramps and feel the blood sort of moving around, but this time it's more just like actual bleeding.

    it's not an indication for any kind of diagnostic tests, unless there are other symptoms to suggest an underlying pathological origin.

    if you are loosing a lot of blood, that would be my major concern. As was suggest by roam, drink plenty of water--but that does NOT mean you can postpone your visit to the doctor. If you start feeling dizzy/light headed you might want to go to the A&E...although i really can't see it happening, it's worth mentioning since you keep saying that the bleeding is heavy.

    sure, a checkup, perhaps on her routine checkup, where a routine question is "has she started her periods" and "are they regular" etc....

    how could you tell i was from NA? and what year are you in?

    i guess we will have to agree to disagree!

    i can tell from the way you 'speak' its very NA i cant explain it but i can just always tell when people are from there because of the difference between me and my cousins.

    Im going into my 3rd year now.

    the fact that you are bleeding alot and are worried about it is enough to try and get some medical attention!

    just get an appointment as soon as possible.

    has the amount of blood changes at all?
