This is a great article! I just got my period a month ago so its still irregular, but I've had a lot of the signs on here and its really helpful to know because I'm going on vacation in a week. Thanks for the article!

so yesterday i think i got my first period there was this orang-y thing next to my discharge and it faded to nothing later i put on a liner though and nothing else happend! is it still my period because from yesterday nothing really happend.


Hey girl,

This could definitely be your period, or your body might just be getting ready for your first period. It's a good idea to keep a liner down there just in case. If nothing happens for a few days, you can stop wearing the liner. Your first period will most likely be pretty light, so no need to worry. Talk to your mom or a trusted adult for more advice if you need it

Hey girlie! That might have been your first period!  Don't panic, just put on a panty liner and if it gets heavier, use a pad.  xoxo

ok so I'm supposed to go to new york for a long time and my period is right in middle of when we are there. The problem is that it is going to be sooo hot and i don't know how to use a tampon! is there any way i can practice using one when i don't have my period? or would it be too hard or hurt? thanks!!!

Hey chica, definitely don't put a tampon in when you don't have your period. That's bad for you, and it'll probably hurt a lot. Just bring a lot of extra tampons on your trip so that you don't have to worry about going through a bunch on your first time. And don't forget the pads, too, in case you can't get it.

I have my period for 2 1/2 years by now.. I have camp in like 2 days and I don't wanna swim in my period, if it suddenly happens! The period should've came since 8 days now??!! What's wrong?


Hey chica! Don't worry about swimming with your period- just try putting in a tampon.  Your period might have just been late (there are a hundred reasons why it happens) and once you start stressing about it being late, it throws off your body's rhythm and takes even longer to get your period.  xoxo
