MODMODMOD! i get cramps ,while i have my period,alot aat school.is there any thing i can do to calm them without embarrassing myself?




Unfortunately there isn't much that you can do. You should mention this to your doctor at your next appointment. Your doctor might be able to give you medication to help with the cramps.

What is the difference between spotting and a regular period? Is it still shedding the lining of your uterus? How can that be all?




Hey girl,

Yes, spotting is technically coming from the same process that your regular period comes from. But it isn't a full period - when you spot, that's not ALL the lining coming out. It's just some. It can be caused by stress, changes in sleep/diet, hormones, certain medicines, and just your body's natural tendency to be a little irregular sometimes. It's nothing to worry about Smile

Hey fbvb13, no your period won't stop if you don't continue taking pills. It may become irregular or how heavy or light it is might change. No worries though. Xoxo



Mod!!!!!
I got my first period yesterday.... But a day b4 my doctor gave me Melatonin for my sleeping insomnia. It works great but I hear they were some type of hormone. I think it caused me to start which I'm perfectly fine with but if I stop the pills will my period? Because I didn't have many signs that it was coming anyways I just don't want my period to stop bcim14!!!!! Lynae P.

I'm going to be 14 in a few weeks and I had my first period two weeks ago, but it only lasted for one day. I have heard that sometimes when girls get their first period, it can just be a dry stain in their underwear, but it was more blood than that, but I wouldn't call it heavy. I definitely had pms, (I was crying for no reason the day before, had a headache, and cramps the day of) Is it even possible that I could have had it for only one day??




Hey Doll,

It's completely normal to only get your period for a day, especially if it's your first one. What you had was probably spotting, which is when your body just releases a little bit of blood. This is a sure sign that your regular flow will be coming soon, so start getting prepared! Most girls' periods don't become totally regular until a year after their first period, so it's possible that you could continue to spot before getting a heavier flow.

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD! I've had my period before but i got it again for the first time in a while yesterday @ school. At first i thought i was just sick so my mom picked me up but i actually had my period... Thank od i was wearing black pants! But anyways my bestie's bday is TOMORROW and its a sleepover. i really want to have a good time and not having to check my pad every 10 mins and im PETRIFIED of using a tampon.. Please help! I don't want to go to sleep and blood will get everywhere!Frown

 

Hey girly!

You could stop by at a department store and get overnight pads, which are longer than the regulars, so it covers areas that might stain while you sleep. If you wake up to find stains in the morning anyway, you could wash it with soap right away so it doesn't stay. Also remember that your bestie would most likely understand if it does happen. I found a link that have more suggestions.
