Hey there,

When we first start our periods, it can take some time for them to settle down, and so it can be natural to notice some changes in length and flow of your period. It could be longer/shorter or heavier/lighter.

That said, changes in the length of bleeding, can be influenced by other things. Birth control and medication can affect the length as can weight gain/loss and hormone related issues and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

Perhaps keep track of your periods, and if you are concerned, talk to your doctor or gynaecologist.

I agree with Holly that there are a lot of things that can affect your period. If you are concerned it would be best to discuss it with the doctor so that you can try and figure out if there is a medical reason it is happening. While that can be scary to do it can be better to know if there is a cause or if it is just your body regulating itself.

I hope that you are able to get in with a gynecologist and get things worked out. Tracking your periods until you can get in would be a good idea as well or tracking them for a bit and than scheduling something. I know sometimes the tracker can show patterns that can be discussed with the doctors but a tracker wouldn't be necessary to schedule an appointment as long as you just explained your concerns to them.

Best regards.
