Bad Aunt Flow

My daughter started her cycle a few months ago, but now she has had 3 in a month. She has no pain, but she went through about 7 very full pads just while she was in school. Im so scared thats not normal. Im trying to decide to take her to the doc or not. Any advice would be so helpful.

I started when I was eleven and my first period lasted for 65 days. That kind of thing is not unusual with menarche, but you should consult her doctor, because depending on the amount of blood loss, they may wish to monitor her or give her vitamins etc.

I had to take zinc and B6 supplements for about 6 months till my flow settled down.
