See a gynecologist?: If your daughter just recently within the year started having periods, it may be unpredictable. The best thing to do with your daughter because of danger of losing so much blood and having anemia and other issues would be to be evaluated by a gynecologist for comprehensive evaluation and they would be able to tell you what may be going on.
