Preteen irregular menstral cycle
An_195142 posted:
When should I become worried about my preteen (11 yrs old that began menstruating about a year ago) having a very irregular menstral cycle? She has her period at least twice a month and they can last for over 1 1/2 weeks. Should this be brought to her doctor's attention?

My daughter is having the same issues at 11 years of age..I think it's normal to have erratic periods during the first year, but I too would be interested in Jane's response..I plan on asking my gyn at my next appt if this is indeed's bad enough they have their periods at such an early age, but too have it twice in one month? ugh..

Ask her doctor.

Yes, I agree with having erratic periods during the first year or two...starting late or even missing a month. I did not ever have 2 in one month which lasts 11 days. I'm beginning to think the younger generation does not have the same nutritional guides as we did. I too am wondering what Jane's comments will be on this.
