Will I have a heavy period forever?

 
Today, I had my first period, and it’s heavier than I thought it would be. I thought that your first period was usually lighter than what you would usually get. Does this mean I'm going to get even heavier periods? Will it always be this heavy?

 

Congrats on your first period, babe! That’s a big milestone. As for your questions, I wish there was a definite answer I could give you. Unfortunately, Mother Nature works in mysterious ways, so sometimes you’ve just gotta go with flow.

 

Girls seem to be divided largely into two camps: The ones who get their periods bit by bit, starting with light spotting, and the ones who get Aunt Flo full-on from the get-go. It sounds like you’re in the second group. But not to worry, babe! Your first period isn’t an indication of your upcoming periods, or the rest of your life.

 

With a heavy first period like the one you’re currently experiencing, chances are your next few periods will be heavy, too. Be prepared with thick pads or tampons. As your period begins to regulate—which can take years, BTW—it should lighten. If it doesn’t, and your flow becomes increasingly, painfully heavy, schedule an appointment with your doctor to talk it out and see if there’s anything you can do to lighten your period.
