my granddaughter is 12 and has extreme periods - is on the 4th week of this round. she used 10 pads at school yesterday and in about the 3rd week it starts to clot big time. my daughter (her mom) has suffered since 15 for the same thing and is terrified her daughter will have the same problems (including vonWillibrands 4. ergo she does not want to put her on the pill at this early age and I am in the middle of the debate. I have heard from a friend in England who took mefenamic acid . Any suggestions? she has an appointment next week with a GYN for the first time and we are doing some exploring before she does that. she is very tiny and the thought of a GYN exam is really scary to her.
