What do I do if I'm 14 years of age and have my period twice a month with heavy flow, with no family doctor to turn to?

Hi, i've been getting an irregular period aswell. About twice a month, only i'm 14. It happens between the 3-24 of any month. It's been happening for 4 months now, and it goes from either 4-14 days, usually a really heavy flow aswell. I don't know if it's from having my period alot too, but I seem to always be tired, and am getting headaches alot frequently, which i rarely do get.

My dad won't do much about it and I also heard that the "pill" could regulate it more, but my dad doesn't want me on it.
I talked to a lady at my school about it too, and she said it's be in my best interest to get it checked because apparently "that's loosing too much blood", though ALSO i don't have my own doctor that i could go see at a walk in clinic or anything of the sort, so I don't know how I could even do it on my own time.

You need to see a health care provider. This isn't about birth control, this is a health issue. If you bled from your arm for half the month, you would see someone. This is a similar case. You can end up anemic, plus obviously something is going on here.

If your dad refuses to let you seek medical care, that is a huge issue. But we'll leave that for now. If you are in the US, go to the Planned Parenthood site: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/. Enter your zip code and it will show you where the nearest clinic is. There you can get a low or no cost exam and medical care to help you with this issue. It is important you are evaluated to find out what is happening. It may be a hormonal quirk, but there are other possibilities as well and some of them can be serious.

Please get checked out and let us know how you are. Thank you for writing.
