I'm 17 years old and I have been on my period for 2 and a half months and it's been abnormally heavy. In the past two days it got extremely bad. I am bleeding through two super plus tampons in only 1.5 hours and I'm getting dizzy, shaky, and extremely tired. What do I do?

You need to see an OBGYN.  If you have insurance, call the 800 number and get a referral in your Insurance Plan.  If you don't have insurance, there are free/cheap clinics (planned parenthood) with great OBGYNs.   Most likely you are dizzy because of the blood loss, anemia comes to mind.  Don't wait, your health is the most important.
