Like anything to do with your body, there are some cases when you might need to see a doctor about your period. You should visit your GP or gynaecologist if:
You’re 16 years or older and haven’t had your first period
You’re experiencing bleeding between periods or after sex
You have severe period pain
Your periods get much closer together or further apart
Your periods have stopped and you don’t know why
Your periods suddenly get much heavier.
These aren’t the only reason to see your doctor or ask them questions. If you are ever unsure about your period, or want information, you should talk to your doctor. They have heard and seen it all before, and are there to help you.
