POSTED IN period probs, summer sitches
omg girl! when I read your comment, i felt like i wrote it! I had the exact same "symtoms" as you! i got mine at school, but dont worry. people blow your first period WAY out of proportion! when i got mine, i was on the lunch line, and i felt a tiny little "splat" in my panty. when i went to the bathroom, i was like "what the heck? this is what everyone makes a big deal out of? WOW." it was actually kinda funny how dumb i felt for worrying so much before. : ) TIP: if your shy like me, either roll up tissue to put in ur panty for the rest of the day, or wait til their is no one in the nurse's office and then ask for a pad. just make sure you tell your mom not to tell anybody else and dont keep asking "r u okay?" cuz that is SO awkward. lolz. i suggest U by Kotex (ubykotex.com) because they come in smaller sizes for people like us instead of the big uncomfortable ones that tend to feel like a bog ol' diaper. good luck! : )

So sorry! Forgot to mention me crying about the radio would be a mood swing, and when I said just now, white discharge, I meant just now, clear discharge!

URGENT! so I used tampons for the first time last month and have been having my period for about 5 months. I moved on because I have alot of summer vacations that I am going on soon (that include swimming) and I am now confident. I am 12, and I am going to horse riding camp in 2 weeks for a week and I am expecting my period around then. I am going with a friend that hasnt started so she doesnt understand! How can I be descrete on my period without all the 3 other girls in my room noticing? And how do I deal with my period gennerally away from home and doing lots of sports without many breaks.
PLEASE HELP! X

omg 11soccergirl11 , I had a dream about my period too! About 4 months ago I was at my grams, and went to the bathroom with this quarter sized clear gel in my undies! My discharge is usually white, but this last year I've been having mood swings, and the other day in the car my mom changed the radio station and I almost started crying! Then I was trying to see the time in the car, and my dad put his hand right in front of the clock to text and I started crying softly, and tried to hold the burst! IDK what was wrong but I need advice, or a tip, clue, anything! xoxo

alright this is kinda off subject but there was this one time i had my period during class so i go to the bathroom to change and i see that i have no pads so i had to ask my teach in front of the class i was sooo mortified lukily no one heard i went to the office to get a pad i was blushing when i told the nurse but it could have been worse imagine if my crush walked in as the nurse was handing me the pad i would have died right then and there

ok so i know how weird this probably sounds but last night i had a dream about getting my period but ive never gotten my period before also last night my discharge was extremly heavy and then today it just stopped all of a sudden is this a sign of my period??
Hey girlie, not a definite sign that you'll get your period. But it's always good to be prepared. Carry a pad around in your purse so that no matter where you go you'll be ready.
by 11soccergirl11 on 6/23/2011 7:07:22 PM
i would run out the bathroom before the girl notices it wuz me!
