non-stop menstrual bleeding, what should i do?

i have had my menstrual cycle for the last 6 months non-stop, i have been to doctor after doctor and they have put me on every type of birth control, thyroid medication and even anti-deperssants and water pills and none of it ever helps, i have a very heavy flow and so being 16 it has an impact on things such as school and even my rehersal for plays and musicals, i don't know what is wrong with me and it is soooooo frustrating. i just want to know what is wrong with me, my suspicions as to what it is is a brain tumor because i have constant non-stop headaches which my not be connected, but i saw this girl on tv who had the same symptoms and ended up having a brain tumor, i want to know what is wrong with me but my mom doesnt have insurance for me sio i cant go to the doctor anymore, what should i do?

no, i am not sexually active, its kinda hard to have a sex life the way that i am. and yes it is a really hard thing to put up with, when i tell other 16 year olds they flip out and think there is something super wrong with me like im gonna go crazy on them or something, ythey don't understand and that is the hardest thing

My wife of nine years has had the exact same issues as most on this blog. She will bleed extremely heave for 6 to 9 months non stop. Every Doctor/ gynecologist she has seen has no Idea why. All the tests always come back negative. They keep running test after test and can’t fine out why. She did have a fibroid but after it was removed the bleeding continued. She also had endometrioses and still after the surgery the bleeding still continued.  She will bleed non stop for months and months then when it does stop she wont bleed for almost a year then it come back non stop. I read on a blog to try CHATEBERRY (VITEX) EXTRACT. I went to the vitamin store and got her the chateberry extract. After 10 day it stopped. She took one pill three times a day… After about a week she started having cramps, so I am assuming the Chateberry started to regular her so she was having a normal period. After another five day the bleeding stopped.  If you are having this same problem it is worth a try. We saw many Doctors and tried everything under the sun and this is the only thing that seemed to work. Good luck and I hope this helps.

P.S. Do not let them give you the Depo shot. She became very depress gained 30 pounds that she can not loss and it did not stop the bleeding.
