HELP MOD PMS IS AWFUL I AM SO IN ALOT OF PAIN .LAST NIGHT I WAS DOUBLED OVER IN PAIN AND CRAMPS

Hey girly,
Try some pain medicine like advil or tylonol. Check with a doctor too if that doesn't help.

Hey girl, it's hard to say. You really can't predict periods. What you can do, however, is be ready for them. Just have a pad ready and know when it comes, it comes.

Hey girl,

There really aren't any particular foods to eat when you're PMSing. Just eat whatever sounds good to you, and don't fight cravings. Although it's important to eat healthy, periods are the one time when it's okay to give in to cravings every once in a while.

I know it's the hormones and stuff, but how do i deal with her emotionalness?? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE answer me!! this is something i need help on, and ASAP!!




Hey girl, I know it's hard to deal with all these random emotions all the time, but really it's just going to take a bit to get used to. You just need to be reassuring to her if she's upset, etc. It's okay it won't last all too long.

What are some good remedies for when you are on your period??




Hey Girl, are you talking about cramps? I know I've been told that these are some good remedies: exercising, hot bath, heating pads, and curl up in a ball (I know it seems silly, but sometimes laying down in those weird positions put pressure on where my pain was coming from and relieved it a little bit). You can also take medicines like midol or pamprin if your parents say it's okay.

MoD! how do i sneak a pad out of my locker and into the bathroom w/o anybody noticing? There always seems to be people walking down the hallway! It's so annoying!

 

Hey girlie,


On days when you have your period, bring a sweatshirt with a big pocket to school, and keep a tampon or pad in the pocket. When you need to change your pad or tampon, slip on the sweatshirt and go to the bathroom. No one will know what you’re carrying! Don’t forget to replace it with a new one for the next time you need a change!

Sorry it's so long !

 

Hey girl,

Having your period at 12 is totally normal!  So is having heavy days and lighter days.  Just make sure you're prepared - if you know the 2nd day is always heavy, wear a thicker pad and go to the bathroom more often.  You can't make your flow lighter but you can be ready to control it when it comes!

Is this weird? Whenever I get PMS, I'm a lot happier and confident than usual. I'm not moody at all.




Hey girl,

Maybe you're not experiencing PMS, maybe you're just getting a self-confidence boost! PMS affects everyone differently, some have bad moods and some don't. But either way, it makes life much more fun when you can be happy and confident, so don't worry about it at all!

MOD Every time I get my period I almost always have killer cramps for the first and sometimes second day. Taking Motrin or something helps, but it makes me sooo sleepy, and if I don't take any my cramps hurt too much to do anything. It's a problem cuz my mom says she can't let me stay home from school once a month but I can't go if it really hurts or im asleep! What should i do? Thanks!! Smile

 

Hey girl! Try taking some Ibuprofen. Also, remember that you should be drinking lots of water when you're going through your cycle. Downing the H2O will help you feel less drowsy and make you're period a much more bearable time of the month!

Hey girl, you don't have to wear a tampon but in terms of what's sanitary, a hot shower is the way to go. I'd try putting some ice or heat on your cramps or talking to your mom or doc about taking some Advil for the pain if it's really bad -- it's much more effective.

I know girls dread it, but I kind of wish I had it because then I would know when exactly I would be getting my period. Is it normal not to have PMS? I get headaches, but I always have headaches. And I crave chocolate, but that always happens. And I get tired, but I am always tirede.




Hey girl, those are all signs of PMS. You might just have a more extreme version of those symptoms when you're PMSing. You do have PMS; you just don't realize you're having it: no worries.

so today me and my friends were talking and one of them almost whacked my boob (accidentally, of course!) so i said, "brooklyn, you almost hit my girls!". then she said that (while lifting them up individually) "this one is wonder, and this one is woman!" it was hilarious! so from now on, all of the friends who were there when she did that are part of the 'wonder woman' club!
now when ever we complain about our boobs we say "my wonder women hurt so bad". we also call our periods fRED. and yes, the f is supposed to be lower case, to emphasize the 'red'.

whats wrong with me? and how do i get up the courage to try using tampons?

 

hey girl!

 

nothing is wrong with you! it's really frightening at first. have you asked your mom to show you how? if you don't feel comfortable, then what you want to do is make sure that your "flow" is heavy enough so that it's easy to use the tampon. also, do you use plastic? MUCH easier! I recommend the "pearl" brand.

The only thing is that I've had these symptoms for around 2 weeks, I've been getting discharge and my doctor says I'll get it soon like atleast in the next several months and that was 2 months ago! I've had breast tenderness, cravings, stomach cramps, and headaches. Please help! I don't know anything!

It sounds like you might be having the symptoms of PMS. BUT, it does take a while for your period to come even when it seems you will. Check out this link to see if it gives you any more advice:

Hey Girl! Not quite sure what you are talking about.. is it your period? A lot of times leading up to your period, you can experience cramps. If you've never gotten your period before, there is really no way to tell when you will get it for the first time. Everyone is different and you will get it when your body is ready! If you've gotten you period before, you can expect it to come around every 28 days. Halfway through your cycle, there may be cramps! Ugh!

**MOD**
Sometimes when I'm on my period I feel kind of down in the dumps. Like I have a really great life and I know that, but I feel sad and alone for no reason. Like not depressed, just sort of sad. I'm normally a very happy person and don't like feeling this way. What suggestions could you give me to burn off this mood? Thanks!!

 

Hey! I've been there before. It's not fun to feel down! Try distracting yourself by hanging out with your friends, or doing another fun activity you enjoy (like playing a sport or making a craft).  Or try reading a good book or watching a good movie for an easy distraction.

I have had my period before and it is getting heavier, but I just started trying a tampon today. I have gotten them in twice, but theyre too uncomfortable and I had to take them out. Do you think they werent far enough in? (They are just for regular days-not teen or light, but I cant get teen tonight and I need to be able to wear them tomo.) I know its the right hole because theyre a little bloody when the come out. It just feels like its putting pressure on something "up there" and Im not really sure... HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!!!
Sorry So Long.

Is it normal to feel the tampon at first? And when I sit it kind of hurts. Is it not in far enough, or something?? Please help- I have to get this down by tomorrow ;)




Hey girl, that's totes normal. For more tampon help, check out http://www.girlslife.com/category/pads-vs-tampons.aspx. Be careful when applying because chances are if it hurts too much, you didn't apply it right.

Hey girl,

75 lbs is DEF not fat. You're a growing girl and you are bound to have some growth spurts. There is NO reason to worry. Please don't go worrying about weighing yourself all the time; you're a beautiful girl and you don't need to worry about your weight. We're here for you if you've got more concerns.

this sounds stupid, but since girls get periods, do guys get anything around the same age? i know periods are so you can get pregnant at some point, but do guys get anything so they can get a girl pregnant at some point?

Good question! Guys don't get anything like that, but their bodies are changing too since you're all going through puberty.

I JUST got my period. I was crying but I have no idea why because to tell the truth, it doesn't really matter to me. My mom knows and everything, but she's not home right now and I have a few questions.
1. I have a birthday party to go to later that's 5 hours long. Should I bring an extra pad?
2. I know you gain some weight, but is 5 lbs. normal? That's what i gained.
3. What do i do at night, for sports, and swimming?
4. The only signs/PMS i got were cramps and weight gain. Was it so light because it was my first time or will it always be that light?
THANKS!




Hey girl, first of all, your period is going to be irregular up to a year after you first get it, so it's hard to tell if it will be this light all the time. Wear a pad to the party tonight, but bring an extra one just in case you need it. There are pads especially designed for nighttime wear, so have your mom pick you up a pack or two of those. For sports and swimming, you can wear a tampon. As for the weight gain, that's a product of puberty, not just your period, and it's totally natural. No worries, girl - you're growing up!

today was the first day of my period. I know the first day is supposed to be the worst, but this was awful. I had to go home early because i almost passed out, and when i was walking to the nurse, i started to lose feeling in my hands and feet. my stomach was killing me, and my back was hurting so bad, it was impossible for me to bend over.
is this just a worse than usual case of pms, or should i go see a doctor?




Hey babe,

If it doesn't go away after another day or two, you might want to see a doctor about it, but for now try drinking a lot of water and using a heating pad to help with the cramps.

Try a heating pad and some light stretching for cramps. It hurts because your body is basically  shedding a layer of skin on the inside.

I was talking to my friends about PMS and cramps and some of them do get headaches to. But one way to help with the pain and cramp that I have read in Womens Fitness and even read on WebMD in their womens health section was to masturbate.

It said it wasnt something we all talk about but that it does help for a lot of us. So I think we should do whatever it takes to help with the pain because for some of us the pain is really bad. I think doing that was even mentioned in our school health class last year.

1. I've only had my period twice and it was 18 days apart and I'm pretty sure it's going to start again for the third time and that will be about 18 days too. I always hear how irregular it is the first couple of years is it normal for it to just start off regular?
2. Why is discharge heavier at sometimes than others?

 

Hey girl, it is normal for some to start their period off irregularly. No worries. As for your second question, it's like your period. It's just natural to have irregular discharge. If you want more details, I suggest that you look it up online because I am not an expert in that field. <3 Jeannie

Is it time for my period? I don't know if this is with my period, but my stomach hurts REALLY bad all the time, what is that??and also, If you eat healthy and all that BEFORE you have your period for that month, can it help with the bloating and such?? Please answer soon!!! Also is blaoting when you feel REALLY REALLY full??




Hey babe, it could be. Talk to your mom about it so she can give you more info. And check out our Periods, Period page, too. Healthy eating will prob help cramps and bloating but not cure it all-together. Yes, with bloating you feel really full.

hey mod? so i got my period a couple months ago...but i've been noticing lately that i have been getting an exceptional amount of discharge. like, soaked all the way through my underwear. usually i do get a little bit extra before my period, but i haven't gotten my period in a couple months and i hate the wet feeling of discharge! i know that you answer will probably be to wear a pantyliner, but i can't because i play volleyball and tennis and you can see pantyliners in spandex and tennis skirts! so what should i do about the discharge? also, sometimes "down there" gets REALLY itchy...and i try not to scratch. and i really hope it is not an infection because i don't want to talk to my mom about this! so what can i do about the discharge and the itching? thankss!










Hey Girl, Choose a thinner pantyliner with a sticky bottom, which should stay in place fine during your sports. It doesnt sound liek an infection but you might wanna check in with a school nurse to be safe. xo Annemarie

WHAT? my friend started at 10 three months after her b-day my mom and sis started at 11 whats the reason for that thats weird

by emrox26 on 4/14/2009 10:59:18 PM

 
 

what age do you normally start your period my mom said that the ages get younger and younger cuz of hormones in meat is this true

 

Once you hit a 100 pounds you start getting your period. The meat thing is not true, just be patient, eat healthy and it will come around the ages of 12-15. <3 Sherryn D.

Mod!!!! If u get a chance, I have a question. Is getting cravings a sign of getting your period? I have no other signs but i have been craving things. Thx!

 

Hey girl! Not necessarily. Your hormones are fluctuating but that doesn't mean you're going to get your period. You will soon enough - don't worry!

I can now use some of the tips and I am hoping it helps with some of the changes I go through. Cramping, bloating and mood swings, I hate it all.

by luckykel on 4/13/2009 10:47:41 PM

 
 

MOD! MOD! MOD! Lately i have been REALLY tired and moody. Sometimes i even start crying just thinking of it! Also, i worry WAY too much. What do i do!?!

 

Hey girl! It sounds like you're just going through some hormonal changes. Try taking some Midol or Pamprin, this can sometimes help. If it continues, talk to a parent or doctor about it.

caeriohas,

PMS stands for Premenstrual Syndrome (I probably spelled that wrong). It just means how you feel before your menstrual cycle.

by HeartOfSong on 4/12/2009 12:44:30 PM

 
 

Yay, thanks! For me, the worst it's gotten was cramps, back pain, and some bloating at once. AND it was RIGHT before a special occasion! I took Tylenol and it helped. I don't really get that hungry, but I get a really bad attitude. It's hard to control it. Frown

i have anouther question.it says salt can make you bloat but can sugar do it to?

 

 

 

Hey Chickie,

 

 

I've never heard that to be the case, maybe next time you're in to see the doc ask them about it.

I was thinking about birth control for my mood, but my mom does not like the idea,is there any other medication that the doctor could perscribe other then birth control?










Hey Babes, I would talk with a doc to see exactly what the mood issue is. If you hop right into meds, you might be setting yourself up for danger. On the other hand, there could be one specific med that will help out, that you never thought of.xo Annemarie

uuuggghh my period is hoorid one time i was in the middle of watching a movie (harry potter 5) and i really had to go and i didn't feel good after that and its been a while since i have had it and should get it again two three weeks...... but why does my stomach keep hurting I wanna try that new yogurt activia but it makes you going to the bathroom more and i don't have time for that during school because of finals....... help?










Hey Girlie,










You get cramps during your period, if you use tampons sometimes your stomach can hurt because it needs to be changed.  Try something like Midol or Pamprin to help with the pain.

Hey girl! Yes, PMS means premenstral syndrome. But cramping and other symptoms are common throughout your period. It's normal.

Hey girl! When you have the urge to grab a bag of chips, stop yourself and grab a granola bar instead. And ask your mom if she can keep that junky stuff out of the house.

by Dogyocatyo on 3/31/2009 8:25:26 PM

 
 

MODERATOR or GL Girls, My periods are really jacked up lately. I have the usual symptoms of PMS and feel the same way during that week, but do periods also cause really bad thirst? My mouth gets SO dry and I feel dehydrated for a while before and after my period. And can they affect your weight? I lost six pounds after my last, when I usually gain some. It's about that time of the month again, and I already feel crappy...

 

Hey girl! You're going through puberty so your hormones are going crazy. Thirst and going up and down in weight are both common. If you're feeling like it's totally out of control, talk to your doctor about it.

Today I was so so moody! First my mom needed to borrow the PC while I was using it and closed the boxes I had up, and I almost burst into tears. Also a couple days ago she ate a tiny piece of cake that i wanted and I DID burst into tears. Its almost the end of the month, today i had a lot more discharge than usual, so could my period maybe be coming!??!! i havn't had it yet and I am really scared because spring break is right at the end of the month and we are leaving town. Is it my period???










Hey Girlie,







It sounds like it could be.  Don't be worried just be prepaired.  Take pads with you and don't let it get in the way of having fun.
