Everyone develops at a different pace I started my period in 5th grade before all my friends (all though a few of them got them in the next 5 months
by Tbarb14 on 8/18/2011 8:15:00 PM
Don't worry, girls develope at different paces. Some faster than others. And between you and who ever else reads this, some girls wish they developed quicker. And trust me I know what it feels like to be worried about your period. I'm a 7th grader been there done that. I can't help you with the timing of your period, but trust me your teach will understand, just be lucky its a girl. After your first period it's a lot easier to time it because you can predict when it will happen. Good luck.- Sinder3ella

by Ladybug863 on 1/26/2010 11:15:02 PM
If it is a female, tell her privately. I would be afraid, too. You're not alone. It's scary because you never know when you'll have your period.

Hey, I used to be super nervous about changing in gym too, but then I realized that everyone else is feeling the same way, and honestly people probably won't be focused on you changing because they have to get ready for class too!

by ace3499 on 11/22/2009 10:42:01 AM
I def know what your talking about. We have always changed in my gym class, but I try not to talk to my gym teacher about ANYTHING!!!!!!!! If Miss Monthly's got ya, I would go to the nurse. Maybe you can at least tell the gym teacher you have to go to the nurse? Hope this helped!!!!!! If it didn't, sorry!!!!!

Hi! I like this guy and in French class he was doodling funny drawings of everyone and writing stuff about everyone in the class (I am 100% sure that this is what I heard when he was talking) and I really want to see what he wrote and drew about me on his folder cuz I really like him and I want to know what he wrote about me. My friends said I should steal it or look at it for a few mins next class if I see it and I REALLY want to but at the same time I don't... what if it's all mean-funny but true stuff? There's a lot he could write about me there..... but he's so nice to me but when he's with his friends (like in this stich) he's such a shallow jerk. Thanx for ur help I arppeciate it!

same thing at my school- you walk into the gym at the end of 0 period and some eighth grader is wearing a small bra or some sixth grader doesn't even have one on! plus, the girl gym teachers have windows in their offices that look straight on everything! if your really worried about privacy for your upper half, put the shirt you want to wear over the one your wearing, then pull your arms out of both sleeves and pull off your shirt from under the other one.

Dont be that scared to change in gym. Trust me, i have to do it to, and its not that bad! Try to talk to the ppl around u, they all have to change too, so they wont care. i just talk to my friends by my gym locker, and its like im not changing at all! dont be nervous, everyone has to do it someday!
by rebel15 on 11/14/2009 9:47:32 PM
ok well i'm really not sure how to help...but if you're swimming, it's probably with girls, atleast not boys! & if you keep your hair down before you go in the pool, you can cover up a little. but other then that, just hide your insecurity. try to be confident, & don't show how you truly feel about your bod. good luck!
by ProShopper937 on 11/14/2009 9:14:17 PM
glamgirlteen has a point were an undershirt and/or change in a stall or the bathroom. i feel the same way! i hate having my monthley in gym!!!

by iheartdegrassi101 on 11/14/2009 11:42:55 AM
yeah I was a little embarrassed too before when I had to start changing in gym but you'll get over it real quickly . Now for swimming which we also have just bring in a note and be lucky you have a women teacher I had one my first year but last year and this year some stupid, fat guy became mine and when that time of the month comes around you have to jump rope so that suks.
by dancerox94 on 11/14/2009 10:54:23 AM
I know what you are saying, sort of. I am embarrassed when I change but I may be weird. I am more embarrassed about showing my chest than I am about people seeing my 'down there' area when we are naked in the locker room. I think that may be because my chest isnt as developed as my friends or other girls my age.
I also hate changing when I am wearing a tampon because of the string hanging out. I know its normal but some of the girls havent even started their periods yet.
by luckykel on 11/14/2009 9:38:33 AM
by emma333 on 11/14/2009 12:16:38 AM
i am the same way. minus the whole embarrassed about changing thing. i'm developed more than some of the other girls and i started my period when i was 9! crazy, right? comment on my profile girlies!
by Sydney on 11/13/2009 11:29:03 PM
I got my period a while ago... Its not weird, really. But I have been wondering if it can happen while swimming. I never really go swimming, but I was still wondering. Now I have my answer! Don't fret, I too am really shy. I don't even like thinking about changing in front of other people... I don't go to public school, but I think the advice that Keltie gave you is perfect.

i totally know how u feel, by the time my first year of 5th grade came around i was already developing! and i hated it b-cuz of my chest! boys would stare and all of a sudden started talking to me! also girls would give me the mean look! it would be even worse when i would get my monthly!
by *mimi* on 11/13/2009 5:51:32 PM
I'm in middle school and we have to change, but i'm used to it by now. It's definitly embarresing when you first start, but eventualy people will just start talking to friends and change at the same time. They'll be too involved in taliking to notice you. Trust me. I talk to my friends in the locker room all the time. And if you still feel uncomfortable, you could always change in like a bathroom stall or something; that's what one of my friends does. No one really cares. I mean that in a good way, like no one is going to care whether your developed or not. Just as long as your a nice person on the inside.
by bookworm123 on 11/13/2009 5:24:27 PM
lol i started changing in 4th grade so i'm wayy used to it, but i was embarrassed at the start- there were two showers in the locker room, so we would take turns changing in that. P.S. you're so lucky you get to change for gym!!!!!!!!!!!1
by Ali2468 on 11/13/2009 5:03:36 PM
changing in the locker room is no big. also when you get in the pool the water will stop the bleeding so u dont have to worry but if you are still worried use a tampon they really help

In my school no one is nervous changing. Just be sure to wear a bra. LUCKY I wish my school had a pool and that we can swim for gym class!
by i_luv_devin on 11/13/2009 12:15:39 AM
Sweetie, don't worry.
Everyone else is nervous the first day or two while changing in PE, but then you realize it isn't important: what IS important is changing fast and getting to the gym so you don't gets marks off for participation =P
If you're really worried, wear a tanktop under your shirts. I do that, and it really helps.
Just remember to change out everyday and remember your gym clothes...they usually count changing out for serious marks.
Good luck xx
by purplecrazed on 11/12/2009 10:20:52 PM
ok the best wya to not be emabarressed when changing is going to change in the bathroom - even though you shouldn't be that embarressed it's not that bad really. and i'm as you 'more developed' then a lot o my friends but its' still no biggie
by swimstar27 on 11/12/2009 10:11:33 PM
if u have to swim in gym, u could always have yr mom write a note to the teacher saying that u cant swim that day. because of yr period...... in my gym class if we couldnt do something we would have to go to the library and write a paper on the sport, yr teacher might have an alternative like that 4 u to do.....
by luvsdogs16 on 11/12/2009 9:43:07 PM
changing in gym isn't so bad. cuz every1 is so nervous they'll be more focused on making sure others don't see them. either that or change in a stall.

wow. i think this is actually the reason our school doesnt do swimming.
but you could use a tampon. if your gym teacher is a nice female it should be easier to talk to her about it.
by Oh My Laura on 11/12/2009 6:06:42 PM
Trust me changing in gym isn't that bad, I mean lots of other girls will be embarrassed not just you. and about the swimming, you should try tampons they're sooo much easier.

Everyone was way nervous when we had to change, but we got over it. We just stand in corners if we can and don't face each other. Swimming for gym? Your school has a pool?!

HAve your mom write a note to your teacher explaining why you can't partake in the day's swimming activities. Also, changing in front of others is nothing to be ashamed of. Take it from a flat-chested girl!! And try tampons: They're a miracle!!!!
by pointeprincess on 11/12/2009 3:34:18 PM
hey girlie did you know that the chlorine in the pool actually makes it so when you're on your period you can't see the blood when you swim. im on the swim team and some of the younger girls don't use tampons so they just go with out. just wear a pair of gym shorts out to the pool deck, so if some bleeding starts before you get in the pool you'll be covered up.
by kenzie801 on 11/12/2009 3:14:03 PM
Believe me, changing in gym is no biggie! The first couple of times are a bit scary, but most locker rooms have bathroom stalls in them, so you can change in there until you feel comfortable. I have the opposite problem, I'm a late developer so it was really embarassing at the beginning, but what I do is I wear a tank top under my shirts so when I change I just leave the tank top on under my gym shirts
by dance_chica on 11/12/2009 3:00:13 PM
yeah i felt that way to when i first got to middle school cuz that was the year we had 2 start changing 4 gym. it's no biggy n no 1 should care wat u look like. ur all girls and have the same things so if any1 looks at u tell them to stop cuz thats just plain out disgusting. lol good luck!
by lilmssunshine on 11/12/2009 2:41:51 PM
i don't go to a school like every one else and we don't have a girls locker room i change in the bathroom
by wednesday1408 on 11/12/2009 2:26:51 PM
yea that was the same thing with me too! like when we shower after drill team, we dont wear swimsuits. and i was so nervous and then i realized no one is gonna care what you look like, they are just takin showers and gettin cleaned! now i shower everytime whenever i have drill team in the morning! plus shaving parties on fridays!! lol
by danceforhope on 11/12/2009 12:33:00 PM
yeah i am more developed than my mom!!!now thats embarassing!!!!!!!!

by Lexy5 on 11/12/2009 9:19:08 AM
I'm so afraid that my first period is going to be in a pool! Also, just use tank tops underneath your clothes or a longer bra.
