MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just got my first period yesterday and im bleeding REALLY bad and i would be fine that... except for the fact that i almost puke when i see blood and then i start to cry i know is crazy but i need some advise
Hey chica! The good news is, you get pretty used to it. Try not to think about it as blood- you aren't bleeding from a cut, so try and seperate that in your mind. Focus on something else and take deep breaths whenever you have to change your pad or tampon and pretty soon, you won't even be phased by it. xoxo

MOD MOD MOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!when you first start your period is it heavy enough to bleed through you pants and before you start does your discharge change colour
Hey girlie, it varies, but usually your period is pretty light when you first get it. It could bleed through your pants if it give it a couple hours to do so. Your discharge doesn't change color. You'll just get your period.

MOD MOD MOD!!!! yesterday I had a pain in my lower stomach. my gram said it was just a cramp. I have mood swings. headaches and cramps. I forget things. she finally came out and said im getting my period. i gained some weight(70-80). my breasts are sore. discharge for to years. then she said my period is close. what do i do. she said maybe in 2 months. school starts then. what if it happens in school?!
Hey girlie! If it happens at school, the best thing you can do it be prepared! Have a tampon, a pad, and a pantyliner in your locker in case it comes unexpectedly. You might want to avoid the white shorts and skirts at school if you're really worried about it. Try having an extra pair of jeans in case it catches you really off guard. xoxo

MOD MOD MOD!!!! I don't have my period but I have signs. I get really cranky( like I always want to be write). I get headaches and cramps. i forget things. I have pudic hair( down south and arm pit). ive had discharge for 2 years. my breasts are sore. I don't know when my mom got hers(she didn't talk about it much).
Hey chica! All of these are signs that your hormones are putting you through puberty. You might not get your period for awhile, or you might get it soon. In the meantime, try and take a deep breath when you feel yourself starting to get cranky and keep some ibuprofen on hand (with your parents' permission) for your cramps, headaches, and soreness. xoxo

Since I've had a lot of discharge and I get cramps does it mean I will get my period soon? I'm almost 13 and since I haven't gotten my period yet I'm confused. My mom side started early as 8 and my dad's side started as late as 18. Does that mean I'm going to get my period late if I'm about the same body type as my dad's side?
Those may be signs
that your period is coming, but there’s really not a surefire way to tell for
sure. And your bod might be totally different from your relatives’, so I wouldn’t
compare yourself to your family members and when they got their periods! If you
want a better estimate of when yours might come, you could talk to your doc
about your symptoms to get a pro opinion.

Mod For the past two days my discharge is different. Yesterday I was wearing a panty liner and it was yellow. Today it was white and thick. Is this normal? Also it's been really red and itchy down there for the past week. Anything that can help the itch? Also I've been having bad cramps what's up with that? Thanks!
As far as discharge,
I think that sounds normal, but if you’ve got a rash and are itchy, I would
talk to your mom about seeing a doc to make sure you don’t have a yeast
infection or something similar (and if you do, it’s TOTALLY treatable!). Cramps
are also normal with your period, and you can talk to your parents about taking
ibuprofen or a similar medicine during your period to lessen the pain!
by APlovesJB on 7/4/2013 10:57:05 PM
Mod mod mod I have discharge and i dont know how or when 2 tell my mom. I had it for 2 months now and i realyy dont know!! PLZ HELP!
Hey GL girl! Don't worry about it- it's a normal part of puberty! And your mom's been through it before, so she's a great person to go to advice for. If you're really uncomforatable going to her, GL can help! Here's a link to help you out:

I'm emberassed but almost a week ago me and my boyfriend had sex. We used a condom.
not proud of either. But it just happened. I'm afraid I might be pregnant. I need advice help anything! I'm so scared. How do I tell my mom. Dad is going to freak out. Im just really scared and confused.
Make sure you're fully prepared for anything that could happen before you have sex, okay! If you can't handle the worst possibly happening then maybe you're not ready. If you're that worried then go buy a pregnancy test or Plan B from a local pharmacy. You would notice symptoms, otherwise it's mostly your nervousness and panic reaction, in which case I would stress once more that maybe you're not ready yet. You'd miss a period, experience discomfort and general stomach unhappiness, etc. Overall, your body would be acting very strange. Jordan S.

Okay? So why do all these little girls want their period? &nd it amazes me how much of them worry about it. But when I was ten and got mine it was on my birthday, in July so I was at home, went and told my mom and I was good to go. But periods suckk, like who wants 4 days of cramping, bloating, being grumpy?! They're very inconvenient. But I've been pretty luckyy. Mine have always been regular. Unlike my cousins one had her 1st one for 3 months long! And the other has something where she throws up every time she has hers and she's 19 and has done that since she was in 6th grade! =) If you need any advice on periods and othe girl stuff ask me! I've been through it all first one in my grade to get it, guys all going crazy, boyfriends, helping my friends when they get em at school I've always got stuff!

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?

well, periods can be horribl ebut at the sam etime its not so bad... its horrible because you have bloody underwear, have to get used to a pad or tampon and the worst is that when you go swimming.. well you get the point. but its also a good thing because its cleaning your body and proves that you are becoming an adult.. but ts deffintatly not somthing to wish for or agonize over it

Periods are horrible. I didn't know what a period was until i got it. My mom never told me about it because she thoguht she would tell me about it until Robert crown came to our school in 5th grade. It was too late. I got it when i was 10 and it was horrible. me adn this other girl in the whole grade were the only girls who had it. I think 2 other girls got it in the 5th grade but i dont know now. At least you have knoweldge and you wont feel bad. I felt horrible and abnormal because all my friends didn't have to suffer and be depressed about it. Getting your period is really depressing and feels weird. Having blood come from "down there" is gross. its like your peeing without even trying. The pee just goes down and you cant control it. The pee isn't pee its blood thats kinda brown. Goodluck having to deal with bloody underwear (it sucks!)

I used to wish for my period to come, too, but it's actually a lot more of a hassle than I expected it to be. For all you girls who want your period, I have two words: periods suck!
by primaverina on 5/18/2011 11:21:33 PM
