Period for over a year now.

Hi, I've had my period for over a year now with no stopping what so ever. Sometimes its extremely heavy other times not but always a period. Any idea of whats wrong? I'm 19 years old and l'm not sexual active nor have l ever been. Thanks

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would definitely want you to come in for an evaluation.  I would want to do an ultrasound and I would want to test for any type of coagulation disorder such as Von Willebrand's disease.  I would also want to test for anemia!  You really should see a doctor!  You don't have to live this way, and also at your age, you don't have to have a pap smear yet!
Good luck!
Dr B
