I apologize if this is the wrong forum, but most questions of this nature seem to end up here. And I didn’t see a previous thread on this particular issue after looking at about 100 related threads.
My young daughter (almost 13) has suddenly started having a continual flow after 2 years of regularity. It has been 30 days now. I just found out about it yesterday (from her classmate’s mother…yes, I’m a single father).
She does not have cramping and pain during this unusual flow.
The unusual flow is constant, but ranges from light to heavy.
I set up a doctor appointment but my experience is that he is prescription happy with an emphasis on alleviating symptoms. We live in a small town so I don’t have a lot of choice. My concern is that he’ll try to put her on the pill. While I recognize that it is morally licit (in this instance), I am concerned about long-term effects (among other things) and identifying underlying causes.
My question: where can I find out about alternatives?
I just want to be prepared to steer the doctor properly.
