ok so today I found this light brown stuff (there was a lot) in my undies (it's not poop) and I'm 11 going to 6th grade and I'm like 5"2" and I've been having some signs of first period and like once I had a cramp so bad I couldn't go to sleep I'm just so worried that I'm going to have it unexcpectedly (oh and if this matters, my mom was 11 or 12 when she had it) so ya srry this is long
Thanks Smile

 

Hey GL girl! Chances are, you probably will be getting your period soon. Be prepared (have an emergency pad or tampon in your bag or backpack with you always) for your period. It's okay to be worried, though- tons of girls are going through what you're going through now.

Okay so I haven't gotten my period yet but since December (its now June) , I've had this brownish-clear stuff in my undies. It happens every day! I've been using pantie liners to keep it clean, but I'm getting really tired of it and just want my period to happen! Is this normal, and when will I get my period? Help!

So uh...i just wanna ask but i'm suppose to get my period this week (every 3rd week of the month) And like all i'm seeing are brown stuff on my underwear. I've been searching and they all say its a discharge. But i'm not getting any cramps or signs that my period is coming. Is this normal? I'm scared to ask an adult like my mom...and only my stomach been hurting.

Hey girlie,

That might be discharge or it might be your period, and it's normal for your period to be irregular at first. I would talk to your mom if you're still concerned and if your stomach is hurting, though, because she will be able to help you out!

I got brown stuff on my underwear like 2 weeks ago but still no period...is that normal? And I've also gotten a lot of the signs too. Mostly head aches and cravings for chocolate but I have been forcing myself to eat fruits so I could stay healthy.

 

First of all, props to you for eating healthy! As for the brown stuff, that may have simply been breakthrough bleeding, or spotting- it can happen at any time during your cycle. Staying hydrated will also help your headaches- try to drink 6 or more cups of water a day!

I am 12 years old turning 13 on December and I had all the signs of periods and I have been on puberty for about 2 years. Yesterday I got brown stuff on my under wear like 2 times (it was my favorite white under wear and now it's ruined) does this mean I am close to my period? I don't want to get it! And now that it's summer me and my family travel a lot and there is a lot of boys in my family especially my age and I don't want to get embarrassed :-( so does this mean I am close to my period? Please help

 

Hey girl!

You're prob close to your period. Let your mom know what's going on so she can get you some panty liners, pads and tampons from the store (that way you're set just in case). Then keep a small supply with you in your purse or beach bag wherever you go. And you can wear a panty liner even when you don't have your period to keep your other fave underwear clean. The boys in your family won't have to know a thing!

I have gotten a slightly regular period that started in October, and I got it October, November, December, and January, varying by a couple days, but I'd always get it. I have not gotten my period in February or March... Should I be worried? I know that periods are irregular the first year or so, but I just want to check that my period completely skipping is OK. Thanks!

Hey girlie,

You're right that being irregular is normal, but there's no harm in talking to a doc to be safe! Smile

Hey girlie, it's probably nothing to be worried about. Abnormal periods are typical during your first few cycles. If it doesn't stop or your future periods continue to last that long then you might want to see a doctor.

Hi, I got this brown discharge about 7-8 months ago. But only once. I don't get it? I mean, I know you said a few months, but 7 sounds like a lot. I've also had normal discharge for 17 months, if that matters. Thanks!

Hey girl, everyone's bod is different and timings for periods/discharge vary a lot.  If you're still worried, talk to your Mom or consult a physician (like a nurse).  Good luck!

Hey girlie! While it is common for women who are pregnant to get a brown discharge, it's not linked solely to pregnancy. It's totally normal to get it - in fact, it happens fairly regularly - without being pregnant at all.

I have a quick question. Is wearing a pad that's more absorbent than you need it to be, bad? As in, if my period's light, is it fine to be wearing a regular absorbency pad? And are tampons the same? Thanks, I got my period at the beginning of February so I'm still new to it (I got it again today). Thanks!

 

Hey cookiemonstagh123, yeah that's fine. Better safe than sorry right? Tampons work well too, so give them a try. It really comes down to preference. I prefer pads, but some of my girlfriends only use tampons. See what works for you! Xoxo Smile

I have all the symptoms like stomach cramps, mood swings and tiredness, and lately my hair has been getting really greasy and i asked my mom and she said its probably just my body. I'm really confused if I'm going to get my first period soon.. Please Help!

Hey girl, it's likely that you'll get your period soon.  Our bods go through lots of changes during puberty.  Check out this article: "First Period Prep."

MOD! MOD! could you please hide my comment?
Okay, so at the beginning of January, I had the same issue as the girl in the article here, except there was only a tiny little brown stuff, and I know it wasn't poop because I just knew! I changed my undies and the brown spot was still there, and my 'period' lasted three days overall. I'd had discharge for about a year, puberty for about two years, but the spot seemed a lot smaller than all of the websites I've been to have said, so was it leading up to my real period or some kind of false alarm?

 

Hey girlie, I think the advice in the article is probably true for you too. It's not very much because it's just brown discharge. So wear panty liners and have pads at home to be ready for when your period does come for real.

Why is my period brown and how do I know when to put on a pad since I just started havin it a week ago

 

Hey! I'm not sure, but it is common for your period to appear brown or rust colored. You should ask a doctor about specifically why that is, since I'm not sure. Put on a pad as soon as it starts (carry around spares in case it starts when you're at school. if you don't have a pad on you when it starts, you can fold up some toilet paper to make a temporary one until you get home)

hey! It sounds like you got your period. You should start wearing pads or tampons every day until it goes away (5-8 days on average) mark your calendar for this time next month and be expecting it again around then. Don't worry if your experience doesn't match this exactly. Everyone is different and periods can be irregular especially for the first year. good luck!

Okay so in november i turned 15 and i was really upset because i have been discharging and have pubic hair in all the places but still didnt have my period. I also have most of the symptoms like moodswings and breast tenderness and lower back pain. However last friday i went to the bathroom and there was brown stuff all over my underwear and so i put a panty liner on. Then they next morning there was alot more of it. Its monday now and my mom says its my period but im not sure because its not red or anything but its still coming out an i have to change pads every 2-4 hours. I dont know if its my period or not...HELPPP

Hey girl,

That sounds like it is your period, especially if your mom has seen it and says that it is! When blood is less fresh it can turn brown, so just make sure you're changing your pad regularly.

Hey! the only way to really feel reassured is to talk to your doctor about all of these questions Smile To be honest, that's what we mods just have to tell you guys when you come to us with any health concerns. You may very well be fine, but since we're not doctors and we can't even see you face to face, it's not for us to tell you what's fine and what isn't. You know your body.

I am really confused on the whole period concept. Ive practically hit everything in puberty except for that. I am a bigger girl, and my mom told me that puberty will come faster depending on your body size. I have also been expiriencing cramps (down there), constant mood swings, discharge, lower back aches, etc. But, my mom told me she had things like that for a whole year before her actual period started. Is it true? Will this really keep happening for a year before my period starts?

MOD MOD MOD!!!!!!!! So I got my first real period in June last year and it lasted the normal time. Then for the whole summer I did not get any at all, then in september i just had spotting, and sometimes it lasted for two weeks. in the end of October I got another real one. Then in December I had spotting which lasted three and a half weeks! It has stopped finally, thankfully. So I have only had two real ones since June, and in between they are oddly spaced and just spotting. I am almost 14, 5'4" and 90 lb. is it anything to be concerned about? Thank you so much!!!!

 

hey girl! you have absolutely no reason to be concerned. as annoying as it is, periods can be VERY irregular for the first two years, and some girls never get onto a regular cycle. I've had my period for 6 or 7 years and I'm still not regular! Just keep an eye out for PMS symptoms to give you a heads up of when yours is on its way.

I have SO much pubic hair. SO SO SO much. It's really long and coarse. I swear it's a jungle down there. And it spreads from thigh to thigh! It gets really itchy sometimes, and it gets caught in the sides of my underwear when I'm sitting down, so when I stand it it gets yanked and it HURTS. I tried shaving a tiny patch during the summer, and it itched for two weeks straight, even with lotion. How can I get rid of the hair that makes me itch so badly? There's nothing wrong with the skin, it's just the hair is so long and thick that it is just a clump.

 

hey girl! rather than shaving it, which might irritate your skin, try trimming the area with a pair of scissors. or you could get it waxed professionally. good luck, and be careful, it's a sensitive area! xoxo

I've had my period for five months. I don't really have a problem, except that my flow is always really light. My Mom says it's because I'm so active-- I am. I swim every single day for an hour and a half (Yeah, I do competitive swimming). So I'm wondering: why does my period get so light because I exercise so much? How does that work? Oh yeah, and also I get cramps every month, and they stop going during swim team. Mostly, I'm just wondering why exercising literally 'lightens up' your period. Thanks!




Hey girl! Being super active definitely seems to have an effect on periods. Some girls only get theirs for a few days or some may have light days like you. It totally depends on the girl, but it's totally normal! Mad props to you for staying fit!

So, I have been getting spotting and cramps every month for five months. It's like a period, but it's so light that I don't have to wear a pad. I haven't gotten my period, but is this it? I am super active (and 14). I weigh around 100 pounds.I'm almost a B cup. I'm concerned, worried, and scared because most girls have gotten their real period after like two months of spotting at the most, and I have never heard of or read anything like this. I kind of want to ask a doctor, but I'm scared to ask my Mom because she's all like, "It'll come when it's ready." but I'm scared because I'm not sure if this is normal. Please help! PLEASE PLEASE. I am scared.

Hey girl, Moms are one of the best resources on this subject.  Tell her about the spotting and ask if she thinks you should see a doctor.  Don't worry, everyone's bod is different, which means our periods begin at different times.  In the meantime, make sure you're prepared for a heavier flow by sticking a pad in your purse or backpack.

Hey Chica, A blood clot is completely unrelated to your period, a blood clot is when the blood get's stopped in your artery and can cause heart attacks or strokes. This is very very rare in teens and can only be detected by a doctor. I doubt that is what you mean, could you be a little more specific?

hi it actually is the start of your period don't get nervous it happens to every girl or it could be just brown discharge that means your period will come in 3-6 months

I've had clear stuff (my mom says i'm ovulating) for 3 years now and i've had my period for 2, my period is now regular and the clear stuff comes heavy right before and light after, like the day after its over. My period lasts for about six days and my mom says its because i'm very "fertil". What does this all mean and is she right? or do i have a problem?

I'm 12 years old and I still haven't started my period. I have pubic and underarm hair and tender breasts. My mom started hers at 12 and I still haven't started it. I feel like everyone at school has one and I'm out of the loop.
Is this normal?

Hey girl, totally normal! Periods start at different times for different people (and no one can predict when it will come). My advice to you is to have some pads ready and just relax. It'll be here soon enough! Just continue taking care of yourself!

I've been having white discharge for almost 2 years now (I'm 14). Does that mean that my period is coming soon?

 

Hey girlie, it could. And if you're 14, it's probably about time for it. But no one can say for sure. Just keep a pad in your backpack and purse so that you're ready for it when it does come.

For the past three months I have been having light, consistent brown flow (No red at all) in replace of my period. And I have been having it for two to three weeks instead of a week. What is going on?

 

Hey girlie, unfortunately I don't have a good answer for you. Talk to your mom about it and if she thinks it's a problem, you might want to ask her about seeing a doctor.

For five months I've had spotting and cramps every month. I wasn't sure if it was my period or not, but I figured it had to be soon if it hadn't already started. Well, this month (the fifth month that it had happened) and this time, there was blood when I wiped and this went on, with cramps and a little blood when I wiped for eight days. Also, there was a little blood on my undies. Was this my period, and do you think I can expect a REAL period next month? My period is so dramatic and I don't know how much longer I have until my real period shows up. It feels like its never really going to come. I've looked it up on Google, but no one else has my situation Frown

 

Hey girlie, next time you're at the doctor talk to her about it. I think it sounds like you probably just have a really light period, but you should talk to a professional to be sure.

I'm so sad. I broke up with my boyfriend yesterday (he kissed my BFF) and since then I've been so anti social and I haven't been outside my house for a day. I don't know why this is happening cause I know it was the right thing to do but I still miss him even though he cheated on me. What can I do to keep my mind off of him.

Hey girl,

If you only found out yesterday, it's totally normal to be sad, even if you don't like him anymore! Try hanging out with your family and some other friends to take your mind off of him, and check out this post for more ideas on getting over an ex! http://www.girlslife.com/post/2011/10/12/How-can-I-get-over-my-ex.aspx

MOD MOD MOD!!!! ive been geting discharge for 1 or 2 years and i still didn't get my period. ive had pubic and underarm hair and i think ive had my growth spurt?!!! my mom said she got her period when she was 11 or 12 and im 12 now. im also kinda skinny i weigh 75 pounds and im in seventh grade.

Hey girl,

Everyone is different when it comes to the first period, so don't worry if you're older than your mom was when she got hers! If you're worried, you can talk to a doc about it not coming yet, but it's normal for yours to not be here, and you will get it when your body's ready!

For a few months I had brown stuff. But last month I had a REALLY bad cramp! I wanted to curl up into a ball. It was that bad! I was talking to my male retired neighbor at the time, and it was really hard not to look like I was hurt. It was my period. For the next 2 days it was constant bleeding, it really sucked. But for the last two days it wasn't as much. Will the cramps be that bad every time? Is it normal that I was bleeding constantly? Do I need to get maxi pads for the beginning of my cycle? Please help!

Hey girl,

Cramps are pretty normal, but you can take over-the-counter pain medication to help relieve them. And yep, your period is pretty much constant bleeding for a few days! If maxi pads work for you, I would use them!

I have super heavy discharge and i get super moody but it's not red or brown, its been white since september! What's up with me?!?! Please help!!!

 

Hey! the only way to really feel reassured is to talk to your doctor about all of these questions Smile To be honest, that's what we mods just have to tell you guys when you come to us with any health concerns. You may very well be fine, but since we're not doctors and we can't even see you face to face, it's not for us to tell you what's fine and what isn't. You know your body. Trust your instincts and talk to your doc!

Is there any way to start your first period earlier? I'm soooo tired of the suspense and not knowing if it is happening when I'm having lessons at school. It would be really embarrassing if it happened when I was talking to my crush....

 

Hey! not really, but after a while you will be able to see that it happens around the same time every month. Then it'll become more predictable Smile

This is really embarrassing, and really awkward. But, my mom says I need to wash down there, but I don't know...how. How are you supposed to do it? Sorry for this totally awkward question...
FYI, I got my period last December, and I haven't cleaned down there...ever, because I didn't know what to do. Is that bad?

 

 Hey girl, it sounds like you're really open to your mom about this issue, so why not ask her for some personal hygene tips. But some basic down there washing tip:, use a mild soap. Not an anti bacterial soap since it can mess with your PH levels and wash up every time you take a shower and especially if you have your period. There are also wipes you can use if ya want for in between showers to stay clean down there during a bathroom break when your on your period.

So I am 13 and I am starting to finally get a regular perioid time. I've had it 4 or 5 times now and each time I try putting in a tampon, I almost get it in but not all the way! I then of course have to take it out and it hurts then because it is dry coming out. Any suggestions on how to put in a tamon after that many trys? I really want to be able to wear tampons instead of pads in school sooo any suggestions? and also if I where a tampon to school and I get on the bus at 6:40 and i get home around 3:40, what time should I change it at school? Thank You sooo much!
Cowsrule11 <3

 

Hey Cowsrule11, be sure you have the right sized tampons. Try propping your legs up on the bathtub or toilet, and insert it at an angle. It sounds like you need small ones. Change it as often as you feel you need to. Maybe every 1-3 hours. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Hey Abbydabbers, try one more time. Maybe writing a letter explaining how you guys feel will get the point across. Sometimes reading something and thinking about it, makes things more clear. If not, I hate to advise this, but you girls will just have to ignore her. Hope this helps! Xoxo

What's up with me?!?! Please help!!!


 


Hey Girly, Don't worry. It's hard to predict when your period might come, even if you experience the symptoms. And although it's likely you will get it around the same age as your mom, it isn't a sure thing. There are a lot of other factors that could go into it: your diet, weight, activity level, genetics from the other side of the family... However if you are getting to be 16 or 17 you might want to talk to your doctor.

What's the difference between a pad and a pantyliner? I've slways wondered. Thanks a ton!


 



Hey Girl! Pantiliners are a lot thinner and are used daily to keep everything clean down there, pads are used for heavy period flow.

after the first time i had my period (8 days) i didn't have it for 3 months!! i later got it and had it for 15 days! D: i was really shocked! it is more regular now... but is that normal? if i miss it for a while that i will have it longer?? *kisses*
<3minii


 


Hey Girl, 8 days and 15 days are a really long time. It's definitely a good thing that things are more regular now, but its definitely normal the first few times you get your period for it to be really light, or really heavy, and then for you to go a long time without you getting it again.

He Chica, It's totally natural for girls to get their period and for it not to be regular especially when they first start getting it.. Some girls will get it, and then go an entire year before they get it again. So don't worry.

I think the same thing is happening to me, but my mom says that I'm not cleaning myself properly or good enough. Is that a possibility?


 



Yes, Girl, That could be a possibility. Continuous brown discharge could be a sign of infection or it could be just dried blood. Be sure to wash down there regularly.

Hey Chica, switch your pad the same time every day so you don't foget. Discharge is cleaning out your vagina and you don't want whats being removed to be "sitting around" and that is what could be causing it to turn brown.

Hey Girl! Women continue to get discharge up until Menopause (which is a long time away for you). Discharge is really important to keep your vagina healthy, and it varies how often it happens between girls.
