Hi, there is no problem in that. Actually at this age sometimes ovary doesn't produce eggs, so the endometrial thickness increases on its own and when it increases to the maximum, it starts shedding which results in heavy periods. So, it is anovulatory bleeding. Generally progesterone is given to stop that bleeding which has been prescribed to you by your doctor. She can take some hormonal treatment for 2 to 3 months to get her periods normally. After some time this problem will resolve on its own.
