Customer Question
I have a 15...

I have a 15 yr old niece that I'm raising, she has had a pretty punctual monthly menstrual cycle since 2015 i believe. The issues are she had what i think is a VERY heavy cycle that lightens up some but not a lot, and has pretty severe cramps. Her pedo doc said she is producing to much of a certain hormone and jusrto medicate symptoms does she need to see an ob/gyn?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?

Yes.

Actually its pretty common in initial few years so i dont see much of concern there. If anything she must take mefanamic acid tablets to help with the flow as well as the pain . Its because of the hormones early on so nothing abnormal.

Only if there is any abnormality or change in the menstrual cycle is when she needs to see a GYN / OB

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
