i am an 18 year old girl and have been overweight my whole life. i currently weigh 102kgs and stand 164cm tall. have been on a diet my whole life and am gradually losing weight. i have never had my period ever as i have unbalanced hormones (more male) and also am anaemic. never been sexually active. for the first time i got my period and it was extremely light, but its been over 3 weeks and i am still bleeding.

Dear suhaylah_hussein,

Thanks for your question. Sometimes when you first get your period, it is normal to experience irregularities. However, since you have been bleeding already for 3 weeks and you mention being anemic, please consult with your doctor.

Best Wishes,
