Thanks for writing to us.
The irregular cycles are very commonly seen during the puberty. The excessive bleeding can cause iron deficiency in your daughter. Youn need to consult a gynecologist to control the bleeding and for appropriate treatment to regularize her cycle.
Meanwhile start giving her iron supplements to avoid deficincy.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
