my period is so light, that only a few drops come out on the pad, and when i wipe in comes out in streaks!! will it always be this light?
It may and it may not, every girl's flow is different and they are very rarely constant throughout your life. Jordan S.

So I had my period like 5 days then it seemed to stop for a day or two and now its back! Not counting the two days it disappeared I have had it 8 days! Whats going on? Oh and how long can you have your period and still be safe?
PS- I just started my period a few months ago.

Hey kitkate963, mhmm it could've been. Usually brown is old blood. Was there brown stuff after your period?
Mod I'm adding on to my previous question. Does this mean that having brown stuff about 6 months ago was my 1st period? Lynae P.
by kitkate963 on 2/1/2012 7:42:32 PM
Hey busybee99, yep that's completely normal. The bleeding doesn't stop when you use the bathroom. Xoxo

Hey maddiescar97, the may be hurting because they're the wrong size. Try going down to a smaller size and see if they feel comfortable. Hope this helps! Xoxo
it's a little embarrassing to ask, but are tampons always supposed to hurt when you put them in? i've tried some a couple times but i really don't like to use them because they kind of hurt. is there any way to help them hurt less? thanks! Lynae P.

Hey Rosalie2996, it's completey normal for it to run in the shower, especially if you have a heavy flow. Mine does all the time, so no worries. Hope this helps! Xoxo
Hey! It's me again. So I've had my period for about three years now, and every time I'm on it, I never EVERtake a shower. I know that's probably bad, but when I first got mmy period and took a shower, it was like dripping down my leg and it just felt and looked so wrong! Is that even normal?! R u supposed to use a tampon when going in the shower or something? I've never used a tampon and my period has always always ALWAYS been super super heavy, I just don't know what other girls do, and I really need some advice. Thanks! Lynae P.
by Rosalie1996 on 1/27/2012 7:45:07 PM
Hey Natalie1996, sometimes water can stop or slow down your flow. For some girls it kinda stops when they're in water. If that's not the case with you, you can always keep your tampon in. If you period is really unbearable and if you don't feel comfortable on it, then I wouldn't go on the trip. Hope is helps! Xoxo
MOD MOD MOD! Hi! Okay so I really need your help. We are going to the ocean for spring break with my friend, but I'm extremely extremely extremely worried and scared that me being my lucky self, will get my period then. I started like three years ago it's not really completely normal yet, so I don't know exactly when it will come... I don't use tampons yet, and I really don't plan to either... My period is SUPERheavy almost always and I'm just scared that if I do get it, I really won't have any idea what to do. Please help or give some advice! It would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much! Lynae P.

Hey alireburt, ah the stress periods bring. You can't live with them and you can't live without them. You are def not the first girl to feel she's going to bleed through her pants with a pad on. Constantly bleeding just makes you feel self-conscious, especially if you have a heavy flow, and you just have to remind yourself you're okay. Be sure you're wearing a supporting pad and remind yourself to let go of these thoughts. I'm not sure if cycles become lighter as you have them more. My flow has always remained the same and yours might too. If it gets to be too much for you to handle talk to your doctor. Hope this helps. Xoxo
Modmodmod! I really need your help. So I got my irregular period on Tuesday and it's so heavy! I am also 14 about to be 15 in a week . I went to school yesterday but had to come home because I felt awful and today I didn't even go to school because I felt terrible. Because of my period my stomach has been hurting. I also hate pads because it's such a heavy flow it feels like it always goes through my pants but doesn't. I tried to use tampons today but I freak out!!! How can I get over this fear? & do you have any suggestions for this months gift. And how long can heavy periods last? I guess I covered everything.... Well thank you and please help!!! Lynae P.

Guys and Periods---
Why are guys terrified of knowing anything about our periods? Not only does my bf not want to know, its like he almost is avoiding me and he sometimes does it even when I'm not on it, he just thinks I am. My friends say some of their guy friends have admitted they hate even thinking about periods or even the thought of us getting them. Does anyone know what I am saying, have you had the same problems?
by luckykel on 1/12/2012 10:51:24 PM
Okay, so I also started my first period yesterday. This really sucks, and if this is mother natures "gift", then I want a refund. I keep feeling like everybody can see it, or notice!! It's a really heavy flow, and I haven't noticed any spotting before this. Is that normal?? Also, I want to know when I can start wearing tampons, because pads really bother me. SOS?
by xoxomaddie on 1/12/2012 9:49:25 PM
Hey RainKisses, I think you should ask your doctor what's going on. I can't really tell what it could be, but a doctor would defintely have the answer. Hope ya feel better! Xoxo
MOD MOD MOD!!!!
okay so i've had my period since june 2009 (so like 2 1/2 years) and i read somewhere that it should start getting regular after 2 years. My period was pretty regular but then it never came in november and again in december. Im not pregnant or anything but im worried something is wrong with me. It wasnt bothering me last month but it's starting to get to me. I've been like getting pre-period symptoms for a while (sore boobs, discharge) as if my eriod would come normally but it hasn't.I know im one to worry and stress myself out. Advice? Also, I think my cycle is every 5 weeks or something so it comes like 1st week of one month, 2nd month of the next...and so on. Lynae P.

Today i had my first period and i have a pad on but there is nothing on the pad but if i wipe it is there it would go on the pad it is just staying in place is that normal cause i am freaking out.
by Rose2112 on 1/3/2012 5:51:09 PM
Hey kpriest, mhmm sounds like yours is a little irregular. I know it's a touchy subject, but if you don't let anyone know your period won't get any better. No worries, they're there to help you. Let your mom and the doctor know, i'm sure you'll be fine. Hope this helps!! Xoxo

MODD PLEASE HELP!!!
I just started my period for the first time at the first of december which was about 4 weeks ago.And i would like start then quit then a few days later start and then quit again. I know that normally for when you first start, but iv now been on mine for 18 days straight and its kinda scaring me. I dont want to talk to my mom or doctor about it because i feel uncomforable talking to them about it. Is it normal to be on it for that long cause im kinda scared?? Thanks!!

MOD !! (;
I've had my period for 3 years now (I'm fourteen) but I still have a few questions.
1. My period is super painful. I take pain killers, but they don't help all that much. :/ Any tips on ways to make my time of month less miserable..even just a little?
2. Also, my periods have always been pretty regular, but now that's starting to change which is kind of scaring me...Aren't they supposed to become regular over time..not irregular!?!?!?! I think it may be because I'm super stressed & I've recently lost weight, are these possible reasons to irregular periods?
3. I'm on my high school's soccer team, and our uniform shorts are white :/ when it's my time of month I freak out...I don't want to leak during a game! My period is very very heavy...& if I have to wear that uniform for 4 hours per day...it's kinda concerning to me Any way to make my flow less heavy or even tips to get myself to not stress so much over one silly thing?!?!
Thanks so much!<3

Hey girly! It's totally normal to be irregular in the first few years after you start your period. I wouldn't worry too much about it!

My first few periods were heavy, too. But by now (about a year and a half later), they aren't as heavy. Either that or I've gotten used to it!
