I'm about to turn 14 and I think I got my period but I'm not sure. At the very beginning of August I had spotting and cramps for 5 days. The spotting started heavy (like lots of little smears and dots) then got lighter(only one or two dots). The thing is, I've heard periods are sometimes very light for the first time (like just a few spots of blood). This was the first time I ever spotted or cramped. If this was my period then I'm supposed to get it again at the end of the month... And that's the first or second day of school! What do I do? I'm not sure if the blood was enough to be a period. I don't know if this matters, but the blood was all bright red. PLEASE HELP ME ASAP. Thanks

I feel like my period runs my life!!! When im on my period im always thinking about how if I will be able to change my pads if we are going somewhere all day, if i will leak, if i will have to go swimming (i dont use tampons) or anything! and when im not on it, im always worreid about when it will come again! will it come when i have to go swimming, will i have important tests during school, will i be on vacation?? it controls my life and i dont know what to. I have a bunch of parties coming up this summer at the beach/in a pool and im worried i will be on my period and not be able to go. How do i stop my period from ruining my life? THanks and sorry this is soo long! Lynae P.

Anyways, What are you suppose to do with the used part of your tampon when you get done with it? I know you throw the plastic tube away when you change it out but what about the used cotten ball thingy. I have always thrown mine in the toilet and flushed it but when i told my friends one of my friends said her mom did the same thing and one of them said her mom did somthing else with them. So can you just flush them down the toilet like i have been? If not what DO i do with them?
Thanks sooo much:

It's possible that you could be having PMS, although it would be strange to without a period. You may just be in a strange mood. As far as your period, there's no way to predict when it will come. It's different for every girl. Jordan S.

Why would you feel left out, babe? There's nothing wrong with you at all because of this. Your body simply developed more quickly than other girls'. Just remind yourself of that. You're no different simply because you have your period. Cheer yourself up by watching some of your favorite movies or reading to distract yourself. Jordan S.

I cannot put in a tampon. I want to so bady, though! I have watched youtube videos, box directions, tried different positions, but I have almost gone through a whole box with none of them working! It won't go in all the way. What can I do now?
Hey Doodle600, you should try switching your size. Go for a much smaller one or try switching brands, and try propping one leg up on the toilet, so you have an angle to aim it at. Hope this helps! Xoxo

I got my period like about a month ago and I'm about a month late.... I know that periods are irregular the first year but a while ago I thought I was getting my period before swim practice so I tried to put a tampon in using the directions... Is there any way that when I tried to put it in i might have put it in wrong and it kind of messed "down there" up... Will I get my period again????
Don't even worry! It's pretty much impossible for a tampon to ruin anything. Unless you leave one in for way too long, tampons are really relatively reliable and healthy. It's likely that something else is just affecting your period. It'll come back. Jordan S.

I just think it isnt fair that we can talk about girl stuff on here, and sexual stuff sometimes, but not talk about boys stuff. They're just as important as us girls, and i think that to understnad girl puberty you need to underatnad boy puberty and vice versa.....just saying

You can just google what you want to and find just about anything and everything. And they usually show more than in health class, so be ready for that, especially wikipedia searches.
