Then it changed to twelve days. that period ended nd it has been six days and I am on my period again. I recently started having sex again but this started before I started. I can't afford to go to a doctor and my mother refuses to take me. In in desperate need of some medical expertise. Plz help

Your bleeding is not due to a menstrual period and it is rather incredible that your mother will not take you to get this looked into medically.

Whether you can afford a physician or not is soon not going to be the question. It sounds with all this bleeding you will soon be facing some pretty severe symptoms of anemia and may end up in the ER. Tell mom that and she may rethink her decision not to do anything about this medically.
