Heavy period.


An hour ago I woke up from a 1.5 hour long nap and i found that i had completely bled through my pad, underwear, pants, and onto my sheet. This all had happened in the time of an hour and a half. The blood stain was about the size of a hand. When I went to the restroom and wiped myself, i found a large thick string of blood. My flow has settled since then. Was all of that normal? I'm only 16 and not sexually active. Please let me know, thank you.

Re: Heavy period.

Hi there! Try not to panic. When I was your age I had REALLY heavy periods. I remember bleeding like that. It scared me too. It is fairly common to have heavy periods as a teenager when you are getting started with having periods. It will straighten out. I am in my 40's and getting the heavy bleeding back and some of this is from hormone change as I come into ending my periods. fun fun huh? Well we will make it through. If you get too concerned do see your doctor. Just know it is common ok.
