Hey girl! It may be your period, since those are a lot of the symptoms. Everyone is a little different though, so there's no way to know for sure until you get it. xoxo

MOD MOD MOD! Im pretty sure im getting my period (my first time). I get cramps and headaches. My allergies are a little bit worse (doc said im not sick). Mood swings. in the morning im happy, noon cranky. tired during the day. I sleep very good. I had discharge for 2 years now. also my breasts are sore (size 34a). Saterday in my discharge was red spots ( a lot). has not happened since. plz write back. plz plz plz.
Hey chica! Sounds like that might be your period- take some ibuprofein for youe cramps and headache and take a nap in the middle of the day, which should help your mood swings a little. xoxo

MOD MOD im 13 years old i have had the icky gel stuff for a long time close to a year or so. i always get really depressed at night or even in the middle of thee day and i feel like just bursting into tears. i dont ever get cranky though randomly. i wear a 32 a bra. i dont really know when my mom got hers. i have had hair under my arms for 5 years... and down under for like 2 years. i dont really get any cramps. i get hungry really fast and always eat a lot. I have a little bit of a belly but have always had one. I'm freaking out because i "blossomed" early but just went through a growth spirt (that i think has stopped") and i am worried about not getting mine. Plz respond! i have taken a bunch of quizzes that tell me I'm soon but i just dont know
Hey girlie, you're definitely going through puberty. Unfortunately, there is no real science behind when you get your period. Even a doctor couldn't tell you for sure. Just be prepared. Ask your mom to buy you pads and keep one in your purse or in your locker just in case you get it while you're out or at school.

Hi My name is Esmeralda im 14 years old. I fist got my period 3 moths ago it is july and i still havent had it yet so im concerened of its happening? it all started April 19 when i used the bathroom and wiped and saw red blood on the paper toilet.I then put a pad and went to school at school i changed it once the blood was now brown during that week on saturday it turned light purple sort of lilac-ish. I told my mom and she saw but was not convinced it was my period because the flow was medium and it still hasnt returned. But i told my doctor and she said it was my first period. But i'd like to know the signs of its return?

Im 12 and 1/2 my mom thinks I will my period soon. Im a little scared but I also think she's right. I have lots of discharge and I have to use panty liners. I havent been been feeling well lately and my nose bleed this morning. I've been kinda grumpy lately and feel tired most of the time. I can't stop eating. I weigh over 100 pounds and I have breasts and pubic hair. I know the non stop eating could be caused by just growing but the rest is kinda anonymous in my mind. ?.? Any ideas
Hey girl, I think it will definitely be soon!
by Tess<3 on 7/6/2013 11:25:05 AM
So I haven't gotten my period yet, I'm 13 and I have a few questions to make sure I'm growing normal...
I've been getting discharge daily, (few months now) but randomly ill get green dots in it
Is my down south area suppose to smell creamy every now and then?
My boobies have felt tender for a while now
My guts have been hurting
I get frustrated easily/ I always want to be right
(Here's a random one: at what age do you get turned on at?)
I've talked to 3 of my bffs and asked them for advice about how to tell my mom and they tolde to tell her straight up...
My mom hasn't given me the talk yet(but I've looked up and googled some stuff)
My mom have me some pads last summer in case I got my period during camp... (Didnt and have t used them) should I use them now during discharge? They are kinda big and don't fit in my undies... Just the travel sized ones).
So if anyone knows or feels the same way leave me a message please! I'm really worried about the smell though... Thanks

I'm 11years old and I just had a really bad cramp I told my mom and she gave me some medicine for it and she told me to keep checking my underwear for blood and that she thinks I might be starting my period and I believe her because my boobs have been sore and swollen,I just had a cramp,and I have pubic hair growing down there and under my arms. But I'm really scared about starting my period. Do u have any tips for me? I do keep pads and tampons in my purse and stuff. And I just had a headache. Any tips??

My name is Hannah, and I am 13, almost 14. My middle school days are drawing to a close, and yet I haven't started my period yet. I have all of the signs and symptoms. I have had them for months. I've researched very possible symptom, and I have almost all of them. Moodiness, bloating, cravings, cramping, boob growth, pubic and underarm hair, and stomach problems. I don't know what's wrong with me. All of my friends have started, even my younger friends. I asked my mom and she said she started at the beginning of 8th grade. For me, 8th grade is almost over. Help?!?

I have all of the following stuff listed but yet I still dont have my period it really upsets me when I see all my friends getting theres and I'm all left out ! I have had discharge ever since the beginning of 6th grade and now I'm about to be in the 8th grade.I havent talked to my mom about it because my mom is not really the understanding type, so I kinda feel like im on my own with this whole thing and I could really use some pointers with this whole thing so that I am not completely alone.

I'm 11. I haven't had my first period yet!! I'm scared it will start soon. I started getting discharge in 5th grade and starting wearing bras in the middle of 5th. now being in 6th, I notice I am getting some of the signs. Maybe a month or so ago I stsrted having painfully cramps. I told my mom and she said to wait a little while to see if I start. I have waited but nothing has happened. I eat a lot more now ( idk if that is craving) and gaining wait very easy. I am not over wait, but I am afraid that if this is a sign of my period i might get stuck with eating to much. my sister started a month ago, but she gets kinda annoyed when I ask her questions . I am really shy around my teachers , so if I start my period there I would be to scared to tell someone. what are some ways I can be prepared?

Ok this is awkward but here goes. I am 11. I am always self conscience about myself. I am 5'7" and weigh 104 pounds. I can never be positive about myself. The worst of all, I started puberty. I am getting boobs and Mom won't let me get cups even though my boobs stick out of them. I got my period in November and then again on December but it is now February and I haven't seen it. I am very worried. I am scared that it won't come back since it been a while. I just feel out of the ordinary since kids pick on me and I got called the grossest girl in school because I started all this. Please help me! ASAP

chelsea_99- Hey just want to let you know since Mods are busy. It is normal to be irregular for the first few years. My mom wasn't regular until after I was born, so don't worry that is completely normal. One month you could have it.. then two weeks later again.. then 3 months later. Your body takes a while to get used to these change.

I have had my period for just over 2 years, my period was due 2 and a half weeks ago and i am late, I have not be sexually active at all! I am just really worried,a few days after my period was due I had cramps and a few other symptoms so i assumed it was coming but it didn't. I also know that this might be because of stress and i just started school three weeks ago and i have been pretty stressed due to school, is that what may be delaying my period, i have had dishcharge over this time. Is this normal ? Thankyou ! xo

by ilovecookie1 on 1/18/2013 4:50:35 PM
Okay I'm a little freaked out about this and I didn't know what I should do. Well I'm 14 and in less than a week ill be 15. Anyways I have never had a period. a couple months back this white stuff started to come out of me and I'd have to wash underwear so many times because if this. Well today these awful pains were going on in my stomach. I actually had to stop myself for a minute until they passed on. Anyways after u got home from my basketball game I took a hot bath to help ease my stomach pains and this dark reddish brown stringy discharge like fluid was hanging out of that area so u got out and took toilet paper to just pull it out. I asked my mom and she said that I was probably getting my period and that it was just a blood clot. But after about 4 or 5 hours nothing else has came out. Should I be worried or is this just my period starting? Please please help.

Hey, im not the only girl in my family, i have an older sister... but shes away for college. I live alone with my dad, and im 13 years old so you know im having girl problems. From what i read here, i understood that my period is going to beging soon, and im kind of freaking out. Theres no one around me that i can talk to about this, and what makes it worse is, i suck at being a girl. im not fashionable, i dont do makeup, I never had a boyfriend (dont want on) and I do not like to talk about this. I don't live in America anymore, so i have no idea where im going to get pads. I dont know how often im supposed to shave, or anything like that. what am i going to do?!?

Okay, I have had trouble with my period for about two months now...There was a time when I was on it for over 3 weeks and it was extremely heavy..that was about two weeks ago.I became anemic and I am taking vitamins and doing everything in my power to get it under control and I have already seen a doctor about my periods and she put me on birth control...which seemed to be working but once again I am on my period! But this time it is really light and it seems like instead of just blood, I might have skin coming with...I am really concerned and I don't know what it could be! I know this can not be normal so I am just wondering what could possibly be wrong with me..?

for me, it's still difficult to tell whether or not it's coming since pain and acne pretty much occurs on a daily basis. i never know when it's coming and it makes me mad because it always occurs when i least expect it to.

Hi I am 11 my birthday was in late August I got my period in early September is that weird at all? I am in fifth grade but I got held back so I should be in sixth grade. I told 5 people about it and none of them got theirs and anyone else that I know of. I know everyone gets it at different times but I feel alone like if I have any questions I can only ask my mom but that feels strange to me. My mom got hers at 9 so I guess it is about the time I am supposed to get it. Any advice. Also I was in the bathroom(I carry a bag with stuff that I need in it.) and when I came out the mean/popular kids were in there and were like did you change I said no then they looked at me weird. By the way my homeroom teacher, gym teacher, and nurse knows. What to do???

I'm 14 and i didn't start my period yet. But when i do, i want to know, can you still take showers when your on your period? Does it make a difference the way you wash yourself?
Also, sometimes at school, i can tell when a girl might be on her period because i can smell it!!*eww* :'(
I don't want to be like that when i'm on my period, so what are some tips to make sure i keep the "scent" hidden? Thanks!! oxoxo

I should be getting my period soon, I have all the signs of it coming, and my sister got hers when she was about my age, so I want to ask my mom for pads to keep at school just in case I get it at school. The problem is, I always get SO embarassed asking and end up asking about our schedule for today. Here are some questions:
How do I get that last minute courage?
Should I ask for liners, too to wear everyday?

Hey chica! Try taking a warm bath (it'll help with the cramps) and call your dad to see if he's okay with your taking ibuprofen for your aches and pains. xoxo

Hey girly! Sorry to hear about all the tampon trouble! Tampons can be tricky and take some getting used to. If it hurts, you might not have the right angle. Try reading this article: http://www.girlslife.com/post/2011/04/19/Tampon-trouble-It-still-hurts.aspx
If you’re at your wits end with tampons, stuff some paper towels in your undies and wait for dad to get home with some pads. They are much easier! Try a nice hot shower to pass the time. The hot water will help with cramps and distressing and you won’t have to worry about blood in the shower!

I usually don't have any room in my bookbag for pads. After a pad bad experience (it fell out of my bag right in front of my crush and I tried to play dumb... it didn't work) I have settled on tampons. Anyways, any suggestons on where to 'hide' them?
by nike836 on 8/6/2012 2:10:48 AM
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.
by m2addyoliver on 8/5/2012 7:05:54 PM
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?

by purple10115 on 8/5/2012 8:05:46 AM
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.

Ok, this is really embarrassing, but I think I'm depressed. At first I thought it was just because I was on my period, but for 4 months now I've been smiling a lot less and withdrawing from everyone. I feel useless. I don't want to talk about it with my parents because they might make me go to counseling, and my friends will think I'm just being dramatic. What should I do?

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.

Hey smiley.<3, yea it shouldn’t be that irregular. My period was the same way and I had to go to the doctor. Now I take birth control to regulate it, so that may be the solution for you. Head to the doctors and see what they recommend. Hope it gets better. Xoxo

Hey heather99, I think now is a good time. You’ve already had your period so you know what to expect and how to take care of yourself. Tampons come with a list of instructions just in case you get confused. Go for it girl. Xoxo

I've had my period for 4 years now but they are still irregular. Each month I write down how many days between the start of each period and it varies anywhere between 22-41.It's not a very big deal except for I am usually surprised when I do get it. Do you think this is something to worry about? Thank you!

I made a club called Live your life which is basically about your life and where to come if you need someone to talk to or just need advice and another club called Arianators which you should join if you love Ariana Grande. There are positions open in BOTH clubs and if you want to apply for a position then please join my clubs and leave a comment there and tell me why position you would like to apply for and why. Even if you don't want to apply then please join! To find my club(since my profile is being moderated) go to clubs then click on new clubs. Right now both my clubs are on page 2, but it might not be in a few hours. So please join because these are the first two clubs I have ever made!

Sometimes, MODs get SUPER busy answering everyone's questions and can't answer yours. But you can always come to me I can give advice on:
And any other advice you need! Please don't be afraid to ask because I promise I will not judge you and give you an honest answer to your question. I also check GL almost every day so I guarantee a speedy response! Im also here if you need someone to talk to. So what are you waiting for? My profile is a click away

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.

ugh I start getting these symptoms up to 2 weeks before each period, plus mine last for 5 days then 7 more of spotting!And I can't take birth control or other meds to take down the severity!
