My sister is 12.6 years old. She got her first period about six months ago. Just about four weeks ago, she got her second period. I know when you go through your first menstrual cycle it can be on and off, so that did not really bother me. But then, her second period just keeps coming back every day. Some days, it would only be blotchy and very dark. The other day, she bled heavy in bright red with severe cramps. It usually starts and ends at the same time every day. It starts around 10 AM and ends around 3.30 PM. She has PE in school three days a week and she would get plenty of exercise. My mom thinks that she has been taking Guanfacine and it has something to do with my hormones. Do you think that she should go to my local Endocrinologist? What do you think could be wrong? My mom heard of people taking low dosages of birth control medication. Is it advisable for my sister?
