I have this friend who she had a period for 1 week so Saturday and Sunday she skipped it because she had started on the 14 of this month so on the 19 and 20 she didn't have it thinking it was all over then she said she came home to day and used the restroom. She said she then went out side to sit on her front porch. after that she felt a little wet so she went to the restroom and sit down to wipe again only this time when she looked down blood was on her underwear so she went to wipe and found a blood clot and now she's scared. what could be happening to my best friend?

Please go to a trusted woman friend, family your mom. I am a school nurse and I see girls with problems like this all the time. The nurse legally can't tel your parents without your consent. Are you sexually active? Do you use BC? Have you had more than one partner? Have you ever been pregnant? What happened to you six years ago? Were you sexually assaulted? Your mom loves you and she will help you. She may freak at first but in the end she wants what is best for you! If you are scared to face her alone, go to the nurse and come clean with EVERYTHING! Ask her to call your mom to come in and the three of you can talk this out. I have done this dozens of times. Moms tend to get a bit riled up at first but in the end they leave with their arms around their duaghter.
Another option is to go to Planned Parenthood, as Lauren suggested, and have an examination done. If there is no PP near you, there must be some sort of clinic you can go to for a small fee. I cannot stress the importance of complete honesty, tell the doctor everything! that is the only way to get the best help for your health.

Tell your mother and go to the doctor. Are you sexually active? You could be having a miscarriage... your body could just be being wacky (especially if you haven't been having your period for very long)... or it could be something else that no one online could even begin to guess....

If you can't talk to your mother... talk to your school nurse or guidance counselor... or a mother of one of your best friends... or something. My girls are in the 9th grade and I would 'hope' that they would come to me w/ anything serious... but if they couldn't come to me they have several other women that I know and trust to help them.

You NEED to talk to someone though as you are a child (teenager or not... yes, you are still a child) and if you have ANY concerns about your body or if something serious happened to you 6 years ago... you NEED to talk about it.

Take care of yourself by seeking help from an adult who is actually IN your life instead of a bunch of random women on the internet... we could tell you what to do or what we think all day long, but none of us can actually HELP you here.

You can always contact Planned Parenthood for women's health information. They may encourage your friend to come in for a pelvic exam and it might be worthwhile.

You should talk to the school nurse or talk to your parents and make a doctor appointment. Strangers on the internet do not know what is happening to you. We don't know what happened to you 6 years ago, and we don't know if the two things might be related (which you seem to think they are). With very little information to go on, there is no other advise we can give.

We understand that you're scared, and that may explain WHY you lashed out at someone who had a very legitimate question, but it is still no excuse for you being hateful toward people you're asking for help. You're a teenager, you're nearing adulthood, start acting like it and speak to the people that can actually help you (parents, nurse, doctor, etc.)

Well, you SHOULD tell you mother what happened 6 years ago and you SHOULD speak to the school nurse. This is not something you should be seeking advice from strangers for.

Well, I WOULD have answered your question if it weren't for your user name being obviously troll-like....and then your post here that was cussing me out. Tell her to go and see the school nurse.
