Brief Answer:
It is normal to menstruate more than a month

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

It is normal for the children to get bleeding more than a month after attaining menarche. Bleeding is initially excessive and prolonged. Later cycles after about 6 months generally regularise themselves.

If bleeding is very heavy you can get progesterone tablets prescribed which will help to stop bleeding.

Let me know if you need any more help.
