Do early bloomers run in the family?

My mom got her period when she was young. Does that mean I will, too?

hey im jacqlyne and im 10 my sisters got their periods late will i get mine early i have been having bad cramps and been going to the bathroom alot . when will i start?

Hey girl,

It's really hard to tell when you'll get it, but if you've been having bad cramps then that's probably a sign that you'll get it soon. Just carry pads or tampons with you to be prepared! x0x0

Mod mod what are signs of your first period? Luv,Peyton



Hey girly! Lots of girls get discharge, and you may feel moody or get cramps Also, you'll see spotting in your underwear.

Ok honey... I'm 11 I got my period last month. I hoped I would get my period soon cuz only 1 of my friends also hadn't but..... in reality you don't want your period. And I am guessing kinda it has to do with it cuz my moms side got there periods around ten and my dads 12. so I was right between lol.

I am 13 years old and I still haven't had my period yet
I was wondering if it could be from exercising too much, because I am on the track, cross country team and I also do ballet right after my track or cross country practice every day...
Is this normal?

Mod!!! So for the morning and yesterday vie been getting cramps like right below my ribs and lots of discharge,,!!?? Is this a sign of my period. Also im wearing a liner in case, is this a good idea....???? And do the signs mean I'm getting my period soon.?????? Thanks Smile

Hey babe,

It's definitely a sign that your period could be coming soon, but it's tough to predict exactly when it'll be here. A liner might be a good idea, but it's kinda uncomfy to wear one all the time! Instead, I'd just be prepared with a pad in my purse/backpack just in case the big day comes unexpectedly Smile Try to relax in the meantime!

could you please tell me how much more i have to w8 till my period....  Thanks, tinacrystal

Hey babe,

Unfortunately, your period does depend on how fast you've gone through puberty, but none of these things (including your bra size and mom's first period) will give you a clear idea of when it will come. It's pretty random! You just have to be prepared with a pad and try to relax until it gets here! It could be next week or it could be in a couple years - and if you have any further questions about it, feel free to check out our Periods, Periods section or chat with your doc! <3
