Hi. My daughter celebrated her 11th birthday on August 10th and started her period shortly afterward. It has stopped for a couple of days, on and off, but for the most part it hasn't gone away. It isn't terribly heavy, but I don't think this is normal, and I know it's very frustrating for Laelle. I have 9 children, 5 of them girls, and Laelle is the youngest. I haven't experienced this with any of my other daughters, if anything they started later and for the first year or two skipped a few. She is afraid to go to the doctor, because of what they might want to do, so I thought before I make that decision, I'd see if I could get some advice. Has anyone experienced anything like this before with an 11 year old, and maybe could tell me what I should do. Thanks.
