I got my first period about 4 weeks ago. (I'm eleven) So I asked my mom if I could try a tampon. She saidyes so we went to Walmart and got the super skinny ones. When I got home my mom showed me how to put them in so I did. But one it got to a certain point in my vagina it would stop and if I would try to put it in more cause it wasnt in all the way it would hurt and not go in. She said that I have a tiny piece of skin up there and it breaks when I have sex but how do I break it to put a tampon in?

Please help my period is coming soon and it would be better to wear a tampon instead of a pad.

I got my first period almost four weeks ago.(I'm eleven) So if I get my next one on time I should get it in five days. The past two days I've been getting this white sticky discharge (I know this sounds wierd but) that you can rub between your fingers is that normal?
Please answer.

I'm 13, and I think my period is almost here, but im not sure… On Thursday, I got my first ever period cramps. I have all that puberty stuff, so I knew my period was going to be heee soon, BUT, no period on Thursday. on Friday I was babysitting when i went to the bathroom and found a teeny tiny red dot on my undies. there was nothing when I wiped. But i forgot about it cuz i thiught it was just thread or lint. Then on Saturday night I went to the bathroom and found about 3-6 little red dots and some red smears but they were all little. I also got cramps that night. But nothing happened today! No period, or anythung else. Just a whole bunch of discharge, but Ive been getting SOOOO much discharfe lately. My boibs have been sore. Is that normal? Like i am going thru a period cycle with no period? Or could I get it in the next few days because those are pMS symptoms? Please reply ASAP. Thanks!


Hey girlie,

Those are definitely signs that your period could be on its way - cramps and spotting for up to a week before your actual period are totally common! But unfortunately, it's impossible for anyone to predict exactly when your period will be here Frown Hang in there and, in the meantime, read all about your period so you know what to expect: I know it's so annoying to be stuck in the "in-between" - thinking you're gonna get your period but not having it yet. But it'll come when your bod is ready! <3

Hey LOLGirl109, yep while discharge is annoying it is normal. You could always wear a pantyliner, which is like a really really small and thin pad that goes in your underwear. It keeps the discharge from staining your underwear. You can find them for cheap at CVS, Rite-Aid, Target, Wal-Mart or any grocery store. Hope this helps! Xoxo

I'm kinda embarrest to ask my mom because in December I thought I got my period but it was actually discharge. But my discharge has been in my underwear for more more than 6 months! And also, Is it normal not to see discharge when I wipe, but only in my underwear? Lynae P.

My friend is having her pool birthday party tomorrow and I have my period. So I got some tampons, this is my first time buying them. When I went to put them on I did it the wrong way and couldn't do It. But when I tried to the right way I was nervous and could, plus my vagina is a bit from trying to put in the applicator. We got Tampax compact so I don't know how to get one that is any smaller. I am worried and afraid I might have to not go to the party even though I already RSVP d. Should I try again? I'm confused how.

Hey girl,

It's normal to have trouble with tampons at first, but even if you can't get one in, you can still go to the party! Even if you can't go in the pool, you can still hang out poolside and chill with your friends. And don't be afraid to ask your mom for tampon tips! You'll get the hang of it eventually Smile

Is it normal for the tampon to but a bit when u push it in? (when you push the tube in to the ilother tube)


Hey girl, I'm not sure what you're asking, but as long as the tampon doesn't hurt while you walk around, I'm sure you're fine.  xoxo

Hey Smile
I've never had my period before. But I might have started today. Today I was talking to my friend cause I went over to her house, then when I got home I really neede to go pee. So I ran to the bathroom and took off my pants and there was this red/brownish stain in my underwear. I don't know If this is my period so I didnt tell my mum yet (shes not even home she went to the store) can u tell if this is my period or not? (p.s. it wasn't that heavy but it was like I don't know umm regular....)

Hey girlie,

It sounds like your period! It's normal for periods to start off light at first, kinda a reddish brown. Try using a pantyliner for now and keep an eye on it - and don't be scared to tell your mom! Smile She's been there!

I'm only 11, but is it true that you are supposed to get your period around the same time that your mom did??
Also what is discharge??

Hey girl! Girls often get their periods around the same time that their mom did.  Discharge is any substance that you notice on your underwear. xxoo

The cold winter air can really dry out your skin. But instead of lotion, try applying honey for 30 minutes before taking a shower.
You're in homeroom and your friend asks you what you got for question three on your homework. You realize that you didn't even do it.
What do you do?!
