How long before your period did you have this discharge? And how heavy is "super heavy"?


This could give you a little help with a little understanding of your discharge and period.

* The entire article is helpful, but if you want to understand your discharge and period a little more, you can just skip down to "It's just a phase" and read until the end of "The Rag, When It's a Drag"

I had alot of the same problem. I never had that until I became sexually active. And I asked my doctor and he said it is normal for sexually active teeneger girls. He also said that you dont have to be sexually active for that it could be caused by birth control too. I hope that is helps.

Actually, being sexually active doesn't really have any effect at all on a woman's menstrual cycle (unless you get pregnant, that is). Being sexually active does not cause heavier bleeding.

Tric, if the bleeding is extremely heavy, you'll want to give your gyn a call and ask for an appointment.

15 days prior to my period it was happening its heavier than normal I change my pad like every 2-3 hrs normally I can wear 1 longer. I havent had sex in a month or so. So im not sure if this is anything sexual.I went to the doctor while I was still on my period and they said its probably jus switching up or getting heavier because Im getting older.
