Are there any non-hormonal ways to stop my period? I tried birth control but had severe reactions to my mood and nonstop bleeding.

Stopping periods: Unfortunately at your age, there is no way to guarantee no periods without major surgery. There are however many options to at least decrease if not make it stop temporarily. If you've only tried birth control pills there are even other hormonal options that may work for you without the negative side effects. I would see an obgyn. ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and your pattern may fall in that spectrum. A few things to consider: Take oral iron and multivitamin to avoid anemia. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. Consult this site for more information on this topic.

Not normal: Bleeding in excess of your periods is not considered normal. However in a young and otherwise healthy woman who has never had this before, I'm not very worried. As long as your pregnancy test is negative, I would not pursue it unless it happens again. At that point I would see your gynecologist for an evaluation. Irregular bleeding can be from polyps, fibroids, infections, or hormone changes. ...Read more
