I don't know what happened to me but on Dec 17th last year I started lightly bleeding and I had small cramps and a headache for about three days. Also, I haven't had it since and I have talked to my mom about this but she didn't know what to tell me about it. Would you call this a period? and Is there a problem with me?
Hey! the only way to really feel reassured is to talk to your doctor about all of these questions To be honest, that's what we mods just have to tell you guys when you come to us with any health concerns. You may very well be fine, but since we're not doctors and we can't even see you face to face, it's not for us to tell you what's fine and what isn't. You know your body. Trust your instincts and talk to your doc!

MOD MOD MOD can girls pee standing up and can u give me 3 ways to do so
Hey girl! Trying to pee standing up can be messy, and there's really no point. Stick with the way your body was made to operate, and take a seat. xo

I'm 13 and haven't got my period I am 5foot 4 and I weigh the healthy weight ! I wear a 32a/b and I have had discharge for 2 and a half years and I have no idea why I haven't started and I kinda want to ! Why do you think I haven't ? X
Hey girl! Don’t worry too much about this- everyone grows
differently, and has their periods at different times. It’ll come eventually,
and for now, relax and enjoy life without your period.

I have a question Mods. For a year or so I been getting that discharge stuff down below and it always been a clear/white color. But last night and another day, maybe last Thursday, it been a different color, like a cream color with some dots of red in it. Should I be worried?
That's pretty normal. Check out this GL article for extra advice:
And talking to your mom is always a good idea. That way she'll have your back when you get your period.

I've had my period for about 5-6 months now(I'm 14, so i'm a late bloomer)and I have a question. The last two times I got my period, I don't really get cramps or anything! Only stress pimples(it sucks), headaches and the blood. Is that normal?
Hey girlie, totally normal. Not every girl gets every symptom associated with periods.

My period is fairly new,and I skipped it in June.I know irregular periods are normal,but skipping it for a month!?!?Should I be worried?I know for a FACT that I'm not pregnant.
Even having your period only a few times in the first year is still normal. Don't stress! Talk to your mom and doctor if you're worried. xo

I'm supposed to get my period on the week that i'm going to my aunt house... and she said oh yeah were gonna go surfing and whatnot but ive never used a tampon.. help!!
Here's a GL tampon guide:http://www.girlslife.com/post/2009/06/23/007-Period-Advice.aspx
Since it's the ocean and not the pool, you might be able to skip out on a tampon for a couple hours. Regardless, talk to your aunt about it. That way she'll have your back.xo

I HATE my period! As for the cramps, take Aleve. It really saves my life;) I take it for the first two days or so. Keep extra pads and tampons handy in case of a surprise accident. I got mine in 6th grade when I was 11.
