I have a daughter that is almost 13 years old and has been going thru puberty for 2 years now, her periods are quite irregular now and becoming more difficult for her. To top this off she also has Aspergers Syndrome and the bigger problem is she is Schizophrenic. Over the past 4 to 6 months her periods have been as late 3 weeks, 2 weeks and 1 week late. The later her period is the worse her PMS is, actually the day she starts her period is when the problems start - she becomes extremely paranoid and then she also wants to hurt herself and she also has suicidal thoughts. It all seems to stem from the hormonal imbalance. My question or advice that I am seeking right now is : I am seriously thinking about putting her on birth control pills so that she has a period every 28 days. I'm trying to get the doctors to listen to me but to no avail yet. I haven't given up yet but after being on a 4 day suicide watch last week I didn't have the fight in me, but trust me - they are gonna here from me starting today. But, what do you think? Should I put her on the birth control?
