How do you know when you are going to get your period? I really need to know. I wear a bra size a 36. I have had pubic hair for about a year. I have had vaginal discharge for about 6 months.

I'm 15 years old and i've had my period for 4 years. It depends on the person because when i get my period, i want to hit anyone who talks to me in the face with a shovel, i feel like im pregnant and all i eat is chocolate, and when i change my pad it looks like a crime scene...thats about it.
by ImJustMe96 on 10/29/2011 11:27:19 PM
Gah, it's not as bad as it seems. I had my first at 4H camp! So I was the awkward person going to the nurse "... I had my first period..." None of my 6 friends had pads!! Haha, now we all look back and laugh.
And your friuends can be a GREAT help. My friends were the only reason I got pads, I was to shy to face the nurse and say I needed some. They said they had a friend who needed some and the nurse gave them a bag to give to me Granted, I had to go back to get more, but still haha, they were nice enough to do that for me

jojo00: Its really confusing because its was about the same time of the month both times, and I could feel it coming on! I think it is, just smaller, because later it will probably be heavier. All the signs say this year, so YA I JUST DONT KNOW!
by georgetownroad on 10/20/2011 9:09:43 PM
georgetownroad, happened exactly the same thing to me and I still son´t know if it is my period or not, because didn't spend a month since that. But in your case, i think it's strange be irritated down there two followed months at the same time of the month. It should be your period! My mum tell me that hers was just like ours, something really light that didn't mess with her underwear and that lasted A DAY, but I'm still not 100 percent convinced

Mod mod mod please help me! Two days ago I went to the bathroom to pee and when I cleaned myself there was a little bit of blood in the toilet paper. Since then every time I peed I felt a burn and when I cleaned up there was blood. Yesterday there was a little bit of blood in my pants but just like two days ago it was almost pink and very few and was just once. Since yesterday at lunch time there was never blood again. I didn´t had it if it wasn’t after pee. So I’m very confused. Is it my period that I never had before or is it blood in my urine?

MOD MOD MOD!
first of all thanks for helping me before, and now for my question, so i'm a dancer, and i just got my first period, dance starts soon , and I'm worried about what i'll have to wear for it because i wear tight shorts and tights for dance, what should i do?
Hey girly! Lots of girls wear tampons when they participate in sports or other activities. Sure, they can be scary at first, but once you get used to them, you'll see the appeal. And, they make special ones for both teens and sports!

@HannahRey Height has nothing to do with getting your period, but weight does. Your body needs a certain amount of body weight to start having a period. When I got mine for the first time, I was about 110 pounds or so (give or take a few). Hope this helps(: If you have anymore questions, feel free to check out my Advice Queens page (ILoveBigTimeRush1) and ask any questions you want!
by ILoveBigTimeRush1 on 8/5/2011 9:10:42 PM
Hey I haven't gotten my period yet but all my friends have they are a lot bigger than me so I was wondering if when you got your period had anything to do with size?
by HannahRey on 8/4/2011 11:39:34 PM
I'm 15 and 3 months old and still havent gotten my period. I am scared that it will come at a very embarrassing moment but I know that I am prepared for it because of all the times I've talked to my mom and the amount of different sized pads I keep in my backpack. But the best thing of all is knowing how to just laugh about it along with everybody else. As long as you don't let yourself feel like a fool you won't look like one. One time I was on the trampoline and my pants ripped. I just stood there and when my friend asked what that noise was I told her with a straight face that it was my pants ripping. After that I didn't feel awkward anymore and we both belly laughed for like 10 minutes. ;)
by Roohboo on 8/4/2011 10:56:45 PM
Don't freak out ! Be prepared with a little kit adn do some research.I wear pantyliners everyday to keep me fresh and to be prepared for my irregular cycle!You can also borrow from a friend or nurse in a desperate sit.
Hope I helped !
by esm257 on 8/4/2011 9:01:57 PM
On Monday, I got my first period and I was just about to leave for a 4-day trip to Oklahoma. Luckily I had like a 6-month supply of pads and some tampons. It really doesn't matter what age your mom got her period 'cause my mom got hers at 14 and I'm 11.

I am not saying we all should be super happy about getting our period but once you start and get used to what happens, its not that bad. So it only happens once, that is getting our first period so its nothing to be worried about.

I just got my period on Saturday but think it was just spotting. I'm almost 15, so I kind if was expecting it but I had no symptoms! Good thing I was at home and not out anywhere! I'm thinking of using cloth pads and maybe a diva cup when I'm older. Does anyone use any of those things?

I didn't feel wet at all i went to the bathroom right before i was gonna go to school and all the sudden i realized that that wasn't discharge..... it was blood! i sat there for a few seconds and then dashed downstairs to tell my mom... she was really supportive and lent me a pad and bought me my own pack after school don't worry just tell your mom (or trusted adult doesn't matter if it's ur dad) and they'll be there for you hope this helps
by qtpie42 on 7/19/2011 8:44:48 PM

And I recommend u carry pads or tampons all the time since it doesn't have a regular time, and it may come any time.
