Hi Georgia. My first question to you is, have your periods only started in the past year?. Because it can be quite normal to have ‘abnormal’ periods in the first year or so. Having said that it may be worth seeing your GP to have a chat about the pill. I’m not sure how old you are but I have started girls on the pill in their early teens for irregular periods after a long chat with the girl and usually a parent. Your doctor can also advise you on how your periods can be managed for a hospital stay. Don’t worry; women have their periods in hospital all the time.
