Dear TeenHealthFX,
Hi I?m 17, the issue is every time I show something up my vagina blood keeps coming out like a lot and when I?m not showing my discharge is normal. And I?m not having my period.

Dear Help! This Is Not My Period. ,

Unfortunately, cannot diagnose or treat over the internet. Since you mention a lot of blood is coming out of your vagina, we strongly encourage you to stop and seek help from a doctor. A doctor will be able to do an exam to find out what is happening and provide next steps. 

If you need help finding a doctor and live in northern New Jersey, you can call the Adolescent/Young Adult Center for Health at 973-971-5199 for an appointment with an adolescent medicine specialist
