Period Symptoms

What's a problem? What's normal? 

According to textbooks, your period should come every 28 days or so, and the menstrual fluid you lose is on average 69 tablespoons. The trouble is, your body can't read textbooks, and it may do something very different.

 

Some women have:

  • Periods that don't come regularly (in fact, very few have a consistent 28-day cycle)
  • Heavy periodsa very heavy flow of blood each month 
  • Painful periods 
  • An absence of periods (called amenorrhea)

 

A few women have a combination of menstrual problems. Sometimes these things are normal; sometimes it means something is wrong. So, if your periods aren't regular, or are too heavy or painful—or if your period stops coming—you should talk to a doctor.

My ten year old cousin, Alice, hasn't gotten her period yet. And she is super-excited to get her first period! However, she has gotten some of the symptoms... She has been growing pubic hair, has grown hair under her arms, her breasts have grown, and has been getting vagina discharge. Please help. :)

symptoms of getting your period, clear discharge that tricks you of having your period but really its only anouncing that its comming;what i do is get preped and wear thin linners for light days so when my period does come im ready and my underwear are stain free. i know ill only wear them for a day or two so it doesnt bug me.also craving for sugar sweettarts are my fave and hotcheetos are a must,but everyone is difrent so youll probably have different cravings.
