Hey chica! I wouldn't worry about it. Just focus on soccer and school. I got my first period the first week in eighth grade! I went to the bathroom while we were changing for gym class. Unfortunately for me, it was the beginning of the school year, and I hadn't put any protection in my locker yet. I had to go to the gym teacher(it was a female, thank goodness). So, just have protection everywhere you go, and since it will be your first time, it shouldn't be that heavy. Hope I helped!

I'm about to turn 14 and I think I got my period but I'm not sure. At the very beginning of August I had spotting and cramps for 5 days. The spotting started heavy (like lots of little smears and dots) then got lighter(only one or two dots). The thing is, I've heard periods are sometimes very light for the first time (like just a few spots of blood). This was the first time I ever spotted or cramped. If this was my period then I'm supposed to get it again at the end of the month... And that's the first or second day of school! What do I do? I'm not sure if the blood was enough to be a period. I don't know if this matters, but the blood was all bright red. PLEASE HELP ME ASAP. Thanks!

I was really scared that I was gonna have my period during the first week of school. My school starts on Monday but luckily, I got it yesterday. My period usually lasts for 5 days so by Monday, my period should have died down.
I didn't want it on the first day of school because I get bad cramps and I didn't wanna deal with that.
