I hate it, I am almost 14 and i haven't got my period. I feel so little when all the friends are growing up,and i am still a little girl. Sometimes I get depressed. Any advice?

I dont have my period. I have been spotting on and off (just like two drops a month) for the last like 3 months. I had really bad cramps yesterday. When do you think i will get it?


Hey girl, I can't tell you when you'll get your period. No one can. When the time is right, it'll happen naturally. <3 Jeannie

i remember the first time i got my period i was at my cousins wedding and i got really over heated and felt like i was gonna throw up, almost like i had the flu. it was horrible. i had to leave the ceramony early and i felt horrible. but that doesnt happen anymore. i just get cramps and bloating.

I'm lucky, i never get any of the symptoms when I get mine (cravings, cramps, bloating, etc)

Check out my profile girls, and please leave a comment, thanks!

The first time I got my period was last month. And when I had it I got really tired. My mom says its because when you have your period you lose a lot of iron. So what can I do to get more iron in my system? And sence I just started should start noticing a pattern or is it going to be irregular for awhile?

Hey babe, your mom is right. The best thing you can do is eat iron-rich foods like red meat. Some girls have it regularly but many are irregular so you'll just have to wait and see what your cycle will be like.

Aleve works wonders for cramps. i have to use it every time I get my period. It helps the pain go away.
