Not always. Some girls think "Oh. My mom got her period a day after her 14th birthday so i have to also." That did happeh to my big sister, but im 11 and i have had my period already.

It has nothing to do with when your mother got it- because even though I don't know when my grandmother got it, one of my aunts got it in 3rd grade (so she was 8...I think- she has a l8 June birthday), but my mom didn't get hers until she was a junior in high school. I got mine in 8th grade right around Halloween. So that proves that genetics play a very small role in your period- or looking at in a convoluted way, causes it, because of our chromosomes (X vs Y).

lol sooooo not true my mom was 14 almost 15, my sis was rite bout to turn 13 wen she got it, and they ddint get warning signs no discharge cramps or anything, and i guess im the lucky one cuz i get all the signs and still no period, the only real way u can tell if ur gonna get it soon is if u either get spotting or go to the gynocologist, but thts kinda silly to do cuz it wood probly be really uncomfortable wen u know ur eventually gonna get it, but im almost positive drinking alot of green tea makes u get it rlly soon, so i guess u cood try it if u want it tht bad

I dont think thats true .. I got my period about 2 months after I turned 13 and my mom got her period when she was 9. Besides, dont rush for your period ... Its not that great. Lol

That is so not true because my mom got her period when she was fourteen ,my sister got hers when she was thirteen and I got mine on my 12th birthday so its really up to how fast your body matures.
