thank you @Saggitariusbaby! my mum said thats what happens when you first start, she said it can be very light and brown at the start. for me i had back pain and sometimes i would feel a stomach ache and then when i would check the whole pantyliner was full so i had to change. if it wasnt my first period, when would i be likely to get it?
64 days ago
@avacado it could have been spotting as it sounds like there wasnt very much and usually at least for part of a period the blood is bright red

and @can someone predict me pls i would say about 1.5 - 2 years

hey guys so i just wanted to ask if what i experienced was my period.
so on the 31st of december i got a little bit of red just when i wiped but none on my underwear, it just lasted a day and went away the next day so i thought it was ovulation spotting. then on the 15th of january i got brown spots when i wiped and in my underwear, and the next two days my pantyliner was full of brown stuff but it was light enough so i dint have to use a pad and only lasted three days. my mum started at 14 or 15 and my sister started at 11. ive ot all the symptoms. is it my period?

70 days ago
Ok so imma estimate as many as i can rn (on this page)

Queen Crazy - - -> your period could come in about 6-8 months but because your nans age was so far off it may be longer or less if your mum was a lot sooner

ILikeCats - - -> for you it could be about 3-6 months

turtle kid - - -> my estimate for you is about 0-3 months

carlie - - -> your period could come in 1-4 months

Moto - - -> my estimate for you is 0-4 months

and finally Emma - - -> approximatley 2-6 months

hope this helped you all but im not an expert - just a female with a uterus and experience with this!!! xx

When it comes to telling your mom, I’ve read a LOT of comments about girls that have had theirs but are really nervous.
So, here’s some tips about how to tell her.
Before you tell her, remind yourself she had hers at around the same time as you, and she probably felt the same emotions as you do right now. It’s also a totally natural thing that happens to every woman.
Now, take a deep breath and go to her. Maybe ask for some private time with her, and then simply say, “Hey, mom, I think I got my period.” She’ll probably give you the “talk” about all things girls, and you’ll go back to your room loaded up with supplies. And now it’s all over and done with!

You may think that your first period determines how mature you are, and you might be more respected at school because you have it.
The thing is, that’s not what matters. Think about it. A little blood doesn’t mean that you’ll somehow be more mature overnight! Instead, YOU get to decide when you are REALLY mature. And that decision is a really big deal, one that you don’t have to make until you’re ready for it. This point also applies to if you have not gotten yours yet and are anxiously awaiting it.

Another thing I want to talk about is the people around you. When your friends might ask if you’ve had your period yet, all you have to say is, “I’m sorry, I’m not willing to share that kind of thing,” or something along those lines. It’s your body, your business. No one needs to know unless YOURE ready. This paragraph also applies to if you have not gotten it yet.

And one more thing. Yes, there’s PMS, and cramps, and all that. BUT your period is beautiful, and it’s NOTHING to be ashamed of. It’s a brilliant way for your body to clean itself out. It’s something every woman deals with. Don’t ever be ashamed about it.

Plus, google “period pride” for more info on the last thing.
Thank you for reading and again, please repost to another period quiz.

So I'm SOOO close to my period but I mean I'm probably PMSing because I'm having stomach probs, nausea, bloating, brain farts, more discharge, headaches, ect... So if u can tell I'm pretty close. But do u think I am.

Cramps- ify
PMS symptoms - a lot of them
Spotting - NO
Craving - no derp
Mood swings - for ages
Pubic hair - it's curly and black to brown that goes for everything arm and leg, underarm, etc
Hips - little bit big
Fat - gaining weight
💗? - stage 3
Mom started - about the same age

I think that's it
