how come and what is the cause of getting cramps when you have your period?

Hey girlie,

I think it is the shedding of your uterine lining so you have pain with the contractions of your uterus. You can get rid of them with ibuprofen or an ice pack though!

Um... dont worry. At first periods r soooo light, well at least for most people. When I got mine it was a tiny bit of blood i noticed. also per period on average u lose 2 tbs of blood. only. NOT 5 gallons

Wait, when you first get your period does the blood come pouring out in your pants if you don't have a tampon on?

Mod mod mod!!!!! So i havent got my period yet and i have soo many questions! Here are three... Does it hurt when you get it? Can you have summer fun with a period? Does the blood just pour out when you have it and go right though your pants?


Hey girl,

It's totally normal to have questions about your period, but relax, because it happens to everyone! It doesn't hurt, and you can still go in the pool or ocean if you have a tampon. If not you can still have fun on the beach and chill poolside! And when you have your period, you wear a pad or tampon so it won't get to your pants.

Hey I'm 13 yrs old and only got my period about six months ago. I know they can be irregular for the first few months or even years but Its three days late!! Also ive tried tampons and I got one half way in and got really dizzy and haven't tried since. Please help

Hey girl,

Being three days late is probably not something to worry about--you're right that irregularity is normal at first! Check out these articles for help using tampons, and it's totally normal to take a little while to get used to them! http://www.girlslife.com/post/2010/07/30/Guide-to-Pads-and-Tampons.aspx http://www.girlslife.com/post/2011/04/19/Tampon-trouble-It-still-hurts.aspx http://www.girlslife.com/post/2010/12/21/I-cant-get-the-hang-of-tampons.aspx http://www.girlslife.com/post/2009/06/23/007-Period-Advice.aspx http://www.girlslife.com/post/2009/08/31/tampon-tips.aspx

MOd Mod MOd i was just wondering why you don't get discharge when you are younger???

Hey girl,

Discharge is just part of puberty so it happens as your body grows!

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD!!!
Okay so just yesterday at school I got my first ever period. When I came home I looked in my underwear and it was heavy! Is that normal for ur first period? Anyway I put In a new pad and went to bed. I wake up and it leaked! It was very heavy! Then today I look and my period was so heavy that I started freaking out! Is this normal? I feel as if its unusually heavy bcuz I keep having to change my pad and it's only the second day!

 

hey girl! some chicas have a heavier flow than others. theres really no such thing as "normal", but you sound fine to me. unless you're changing pads every half hour, you should be just fine. try waiting about six months to see if it lightens up. if it doesn't have your mom schedule an appt with your doc if youre that concerned.

Hey girly, you're a good friend to care and worry about your BFF. It sounds like she is really overwhelmed and is expressing that in an unhealthy way. This sitch is too big for you and your BFF to handle alone. It's a good idea to talk to a parent or councelor about whats going on. When you talk to a councelor, your friend might be angry at first, but she'll soon realize that you got her help because you care about her. She's lucky to have you. Sometimes being a good friend is tough work. Check out this link if you or your friend need more resources. http://www.girlslife.com/post/2008/08/04/HELP!2.aspx Lauren I.
