Hi moms,



My daughter is almost 11 years old and she had her first period last December 2011. My daughters period was regular for 3 months but from March 2012 ,she is having an irregular period. Her period started March 3 and it stayed for 8/9 days and then 8/9 days off and then started again and she still is having her period without stopping. I am very worried about this. Please let me know if anyone of you is having same experience with your daughter like me, and I appreciate any advise from you.



Thank you.

My 14 yr old has been irregular since her first period which was about a year or so ago. it comes at various intervals...every 2 wks..sometimes 3. It last for a 7-10 days....she gets alot of pain,etc. I took her to the gyn who said she may regulate with age or they can give her birth control pills to regulate it, I opted for time!

I agree with taking her to the doctors. It's supposed to be "irregular" at that age, but that sounds drastic. Maybe it's something hormonal.

Aww poor thing. Well I really have no different advice - just take her to the doctor. Which you already did.

Thank you Angela. Actually, we already did all the blood tests and 1 ultrasound and the result came out normal. But, still she just got a little bit of spotting from today after 2 days off. Her doctor will send her to a specialist soon.



Thank you again.

Irregular periods are quite common in menstruating females of all ages. Also remember that a "regular" period isn't necessarily always 28 days. I thought mine were irregular right through my teens and then starting counting the days and checking the calendar - they were VERY regular - but came every 39 days!



During the first 3 years after periods start they are likely to be irregular anyway. They can stop altogether for several months for no apparent reason.



However, I appreciate that 8 or 9 days menstruation followed by 8 or 9 days break then 8 or 9 days menstruation again must be worrying and certainly inconvenient. Check out with the doctor or practice nurse at your local surgery. Also this weblink may be helpful:

I would take her to the Dr. and have her checked out. I could be any number of things. But for your peace of mind and your daughter's health I would take her to the Dr.

I had a very irregular period until I was 16, but it took many doctors visits and even a low dose birth control for a year for it to regulate. Most likely it will even out (I missed a lot of periods when I first started and had month-2 month long ones). I expect my daughter's will be the same. Knowing family history really helps, the doctor usually asks about it.
