I just wanted to share some advice with y'all ok so if ur familiar with discharge, most people's first period is basically like that except with blood instead of the clear/white fluid. What I like to use is the U by Kotex slender regular tampons; never use more protection than what u need when it come to tampons. For pads I like the U by Kotex CleanWear regular pads. I only wear these at night because I don't like wearing a tampon at night incase because I'm afraid to. I also wear U by Kotex pantiliners before I start my period and after it ends just to catch any bloody discharge. I seriously recomend the Always wipes. This helps keep u fresh and clean and fights odor. They come in to go packs; perfect for ur purse. Also I love midol for cramps, etc. cuz it helps all the symptoms and is made for ur period. I'm inlove with Kotex products I will never stop using them! You can order them online too! So informational too! http://m.ubykotex.com/default.aspx

Your mom's actually very right, your weight fluctuates as you grow. Your body just has a changing metabolism and generally changes as your weight distributes across your body too. Jordan S.

Hey if you have any questions you could ask me, I wouldn't mind. I'm kind of new on this website, and I haven't gotten my period yet, but I expect it'll come soon. I've done quite a bit of research on it and I've read plenty of first period stories to get myself more comfortable with the subject.
And... I usually give pretty good advice. Well, according to yahoo answers, anyway.

The store where I buy my tampons now sells different kinds of vibrators right next to where I buy my tampons. The next time I go with my mom might be kind of funny.

I have had my discharge since September and I've been told that you are supposed to get your period 6-12 months after you start your discharge. its been 9 months i think my period is coming because i am getting crampy and I've got a lot of pubic hair. Could someone please tell me if they think I'll be gettin Aunt Flo soon?? P.S. I have a stash of a couple pads in my backpack just in case.

Hey everyone who has tampon troubles!
Tampons aren't so bad.
several months ago i got my period. I decided pads had to end once i was skiing and i got it.
I had no pads availiable and i was afraid to use the free tampons the resort had avaliable.
When i got home i tried a tampon,
it was scary because my mom wasn't there and i had tried it before and it hurt!
But trust me,
everyone should try to get in the habit of tampons (unless you perfer pads) but my aunt always uses pads and I dont see how she does it.
I think tampons are GREAT! they feel so much more clean and they are easier to slip into your pocket than a pad. Plus it helps with sports and swimming!
If you need any advice on friend troubles to periods come 2 me! I help tons of people (xpecially my 11yr old sister's friends! ) (ugh do 5th graders ever have steady friendships? these 2 girls keep fighting and making up every day, i cant keep up! LOL)

Anything that you are unprepared for can be scary-- especially your first period. The best way to avoid this is to know your stuff and be prepared before it happens. Go to the store with mom or another tursted older female and get a box pads. Learn how to put one on so when the time comes it won't be so scary. Basically a pad is big sticker for your underwear. Be prepared just in case and maybe keep a pad in your locker. If you know how to use one before the real time comes, you feel more at ease when your period arrives.

You should first try using a tampon when you ARE on your period!It's not very safe to try using one when your not on your period
by kalei896 on 4/4/2011 3:50:53 PM
i really dont thing getting a period is as bad as some girls think it is. i mean they shouldnt fell sad about it they should feel happy that they are growing up from being a girl to a young woman. it means there growing up and can possibly even fell more mature.

I'm almost fifteen, and I don't have my period! Crazy, right? I used to care a lot because I felt left out, but now I really don't care. It'll be cool when I get it, but for know, I'm just relaxing until it happens.

Why would you want to put in a tampon when you're not on your period? They hurt when you take them out when they're dry.

So true!! Lol.. It also helps your nerves once you started, where a pad and a tampon. Change the pad not so often as you normally, but the tampon change as normal. That way, if you leak on the ride home, you have backup. ;)
