Hi there, I really hope you can help me. My younger sister is 15 and has diabetes. She rarely gets her period, (got it the first time at the weekend since July!) She started getting her period when she was 13. When she does get them they are extreeemely heavy and there are large black clots. She tells me they can be as big as a tennis ball. She is really worried about this but our doctor says there is nothing to worry about. She is also worried about how irregular, heavy and painful they are. Can anyone offer any reassurance or advice please? Thank you for taking the time to read this, Cx
