Thanks for writing to us.

Long time menstrual bleeding after starting of her first period (menarche) is not always a normal thing. Here, we need to investigate properly to rule out the exact causes.

For this, I need some additional information which helps to assist you better and give proper guideline. These are:

1) Whether amount of menstrual bleeding is quite heavy or light?
2) Exact location of pain and is it mild or continuous on a particular area?
3) Any other associated symptoms or systemic illness in the past or recent?
4) Current body weight (if recently measured) and family H/O bleeding disorder or problem (if any).

Give detail information as much as possible. All things will be discussed in the follow-up section. Waiting for your reply.
