IF you are this concerned I would suggest you consult with your GYN. If the doctor feel the need to examine your daughter then you will be asked to bring her in for an examination. I doubt that will be the case. [ adviceman49's advice column | Ask adviceman49 A Question ]
xTruthinLovex answered Friday June 21 2013, 1:25 am: I had the same problem. I started having periods when I was twelve. I would see blood for one day and then it would stop. And then in about two or three months I would bleed for one day and it would stop. So my mom took me to the doctor and she said that she had the same problem as well. In fact, she started her actual period at eighteen! She also told me that these symptoms are normal and will happen a while until your daughter starts having a normal cycle.

Dragonflymagic answered Thursday June 20 2013, 11:29 pm: Someone else just wrote in that there was a delay of two months. It is becoming prevalent it seems. Nothing that happened in your teens or mine. I had irregular periods but more like having spotting 3 weeks, then a month til a real period, then 2 1/2 weeks before the next period. I went through the same thing in menopause. Since kids are developing faster and developing a libido at a much younger age, 10 than in my day, I can only think it could be linked to the hormones puts into the animals to make them grow faster to get to the supermarket for us to eat. Many articles and scientists have hinted at that. If that is true, then there can be something else that is new to what our kids and teens are getting that we didn't as kids and it has the side effect of making periods irregular or maybe worse case scenerio, sterile.
It could be something approved by by the FDA but the side effects are only now starting to show so Dr. wont have anything to tell you.
If I was in you shoes, I'd start doing research on the web to see if there are any other cases and what if anything they have in common. Once you have some ideas or leads to follow, then check it out. In meanwhile, If she isn't in pain, it shouldn't be life threatening.
