This question is on every girl's mind once she approaches 'tweenhood, and for good reason: Your period changes your life significantly, and signifies the beginning of becoming a woman. Take my period quiz to get a better idea of when you'll start yours.

So I havent asked a question here in a while but.. I just got 2 new bras that are padded! Theyre very comfortable and fit good but heres the thing.. I dont like how thick the padding is. It makes my 💗 look a lot (not really a lot but some) bigger. I don't really like that. I definitely dont want to return them either!! (I'm a size B btw)

@megan if you can't get a hold of one, place your pad towards the back and then put another pad (not on top) but diagonall towards the back of your 1st pad.

@megan I just looked it up and it said that if the pad feels wet damp or heavy then you should change it also if it starts staining you need to change it more often

@megan if you need something thicker right now go on YouTube and watch marissa Rachel she has a vid on homemade pads that aren’t just toilet paper

I’ve been taking several tests and a lot of them ask if your armpit hair is blonde or dark but I think that’s unfair cause my friend (we’re very open with each other) has always had dark hair cause she has brown hair but mine started off blonde and only a few are dark because I’m blonde. The hairs aren’t whispy though like the tests say they are coarse. I shave and if I let them get to long it itches soooo I’m not sure what do people think??

when I got "welcome womanhood and wear a pad" on the test I didn't think I would get it an hour later hahaha.

it wasn't a complete coincidence tho bc I only started doing tests last night because I wiped and saw a tiny bit of blood.:)

@ a human
I would say you can get it any time from now to six months. I can give you a better estimate once you answer Hailee's questions tho.

haha now I'm gonna help people because u guys helped me and today is my first day ever of having my period, and I wanna help people. I'm not craving food or being super emotional (I was emotional this morning tho) and I don't have any cramps or anything.

also, my flow is like regular but my mom was like "get thin light ones" and I was like "don't I need overnight ones and medium ones too just incase" and she was like no its fine.

how do you know when the pad is full? please help hahaha I need to know for school tmrw oh god I'm scared. and I can never feel it coming out so tmrw is gonna be an interesting day ph no

@megan lol my mom was like "rEALlYy?!" For pads it kind of depends on where you live Im pretty sure LilLets are only in the uk, theres U by kotex tween pads, and always infinite tween pads.Im not sure if pads would show through leggings since I havent tried it before 😅 As for dates on when it will come, try the app clue and once you get more regular if you want you can start making a calendar if you'd like. And, its totally fine to be embarrassed its still new to so many girls right now!

@Banana I use always tampons! Some people like using the sports tampons if they're young because they're shorter I believe. Also if you put one in the wrong way instead of just rippings it out lay in a bath with your legs spread apart so that some water soaks up on there.

I would post my comments just in 1 big comment but it doesnt let me..@megan I can so relate to the coughing/sneezing on your period. Especially getting up right after you woke up! But yeah it doesn't really do it when it's lighter.

@Maya thats probably it! Grab a pad, and put the middle of the pad where the blood is. Normally its the middle but more towards the back. Pads should be comfortable if put in the right place. Congrats and good luck 😁
