2 weeks ago I started coughing a little bit. And I hardly ever eat and here lately I've been eating A LOT! About 3 days ago I got 2 cold sores. And I have a TON of acne all of a sudden. Could this mean I'm going to start my period?

My period schedule has been VERY mixed up. I had once period for one week and then i havent had it for almost 3 months now. What's happening?

Hey Girl--

Your monthly cycle can be really inconsistent at first-- and even years later. Don't worry about it. If it bothers you, you can ask your doctor for recommendations. 

good luck!

EXTREEEMLY TIRED a period symptom???


Hey girl!  If you feel like you need to sleep for more than 12 hours a day, you should talk to your doc.  It might be nothing, but there are a lot of things that could be wrong.  If this is a new thing, then you should tell your mom and make an appointment with your doc. xoxo

I always get a painful pimple when my period is about to come. If I'm really diligent in my skin care around the time it comes, then it really isn't that bad. I'll probably get one pimple on my chin or something. But if I slacked, then it would be worse.

I've had my period for a year and a half. It's been pretty regular, I usually get it every 28 days but my last two periods have showed up a week early. This is not very convenient for my busy schedule. Is there anything I can do to get it back to 'normal'? Birth control maybe? I'm turning 14 in 2 months.


hey! birth control is one option. I would suggest talking to your mom or doctor about your different options. good luck!

So I just got grounded, and I will have no phone or computer, possibly no T.V. What are some things to do to keep my occupied? =/

Hey girl, sorry to hear that. You can bust your boredom with some good books, or get crafty by making bracelets. Maybe you can learn how to cook some new things, or spend more time with your sibs (if you have any). Try making up some playlists on your iPod for different parts of your day - waking up, working out, going to sleep, etc.

is it ok to wear a bra to sleep? and is there ANYWAY to get your period early or late?? im going to camp next week and i havent got my period yet this month but im suppose to get it this week and i dont want to deal with it during camp!! were going to go swimming too... THANKS! Smile

Hey chica, if you're comfortable wearing a bra to sleep, then that is totally fine. It's not gonna hurt you in any way. And sorry to tell you, but periods are just inconvenient most of the time, and there's nothing you can do. Just be prepared with lots of pads, and check out this article on going swimming with a period: http://www.girlslife.com/post/2012/06/22/4-steps-to-a-pool-perfect-period.aspx. Good luck!
