I am 12 and I haven't had my period yet. I have been having all these signs! I am really worried about getting it for the first time. How to I relax myself so I stop freaking out?

To keep my spirits up when that time of the month rolls around, I read a good book.

i just got my 6 th or 7 th period. Normally they are regular flow and i never have cramps. But my last to periods have been heavy and i feel so icky. Is this normal? Also, how can i keep the cramps from being as bad? I heard excercise helps, so im going on a run with my friend! Will this help?

Hey girl,

That can be normal, but there's no harm in checking in with a doc or nurse! Exercise will help, as will drinking lots of water.

I just got my period. I have been having it for two years now, and it usually takes 3-4 days to pass. But this month is going on a whole week!!!!!! Is there something wrong, because I am concerned how long it has been lasting.

Hey girl,

Normal periods can be up to a week long, so you are probably fine,  but you can talk to a parent or a doc if you are still worried to be safe!

I am fourteen in a month and I got my first period on wednesday. Then on thursday I wore a tampon to swim (which was no problem) and it was full. I took it out and showered, and then I got barely anything for the rest of the night. I thought it was over but then it became really heavy again today around lunch time, and then became barely anything once it became evening. Is this wierd? It is always heaviest after lunchish time. Thanks for any of the help

Hey girl,

That sounds normal, especially for your first period. You will typically bleed less when sleeping since your feet are elevated. There's no harm in talking to your mom or a doc about it, though!
