Will I have a heavy period forever?

Today, I had my first period, and it’s heavier than I thought it would be...

My mom says that when you have your period that you have to go to the doctor to check for cancer and stuff. I am kind of freaking out because I am not sure what they do, does it hurt? Thanks!

Hey babe! 

When you're sexually active, you should start seeing a gynecologist - a kind of doctor who specializes in womens' bodies. The doctor will give you an exam and check for cancerous cells, but you don't have to go when you start your period. Don't worry about it, it probably won't happen for a while! xoxox

I've had light periods since I started and now all of a sudden it's super heavy, why does that happen? and is there something wrong with me?


Hey chica! No, there's nothing wrong with you. Your period may not be the same every month--this is normal. As you get older, it will start to be more consistent. When you are bleeding heavier, be sure to take the proper precautions, like changing your pad or tampon more frequently.

Okay, so I have had my period for like, er, about four months. Whenever I get it, there is always a funky smell coming from "down there." I wear pads and liners, but no tampons. Anyways though, is there a way to get it to stop? Thanks! Smile

Hey girl,

This is totally normal! (Gonna be gross for a min, sorry chickie...) - It's the blood coming out and sitting there in the pad/drying on your skin that gives it a funky odor. Just make sure you bathe regularly and, if you need a lil refresh, wipes of feminine cleanser (like the body wipes from Playtex Sport or Always Cleansing Cloths) can help keep you feeling clean in the middle of the day Smile It's just a few days a month, so try to get through it! <3

I get a really heavy and painful period, and i even take pain killers and they don't do the trick. My mom is considering anti pregnancy pills, to make my period lighter. Is that a good idea?

Hey girlie,

I went on birth control pills to lessen my cramps, make my periods lighter and, most importantly, to make them more regular. I went from having periods off and on (once I had one for a MONTH straight!), to knowing exactly what day it will start. It really helped me! Discuss it with your mom and your doc, then decide if it's right for you too Smile

Hi! Hey, every month, for a few days, my lower right side hurts. My mom says that it's just because I'm ovulating, but why does it hurt?

Because right below that your ovaries are releasing an egg. It takes a bit of effort and muscle work, so it hurts a bit. Dont worry about it though! its a nice sign that youre gonna get your period soon Smile xoxo kerra

I have my period but every month it's coming at leat a week earlier then the month before. What's going on??


Hey girly! It's totally normal to be irregular in the first few years after you start your period. I wouldn't worry too much about it!

Hey girlfriend, for the first year your period can be irregular, meaning it's lighter sometimes or last longer other times. Check out our period page on here to learn more about your cycle. Smile Smile

My first few periods were heavy, too. But by now (about a year and a half later), they aren't as heavy. Either that or I've gotten used to it!
