Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I have trouble talking and telling my mom when I start my period and need pads. Can you help?

Dear Alexa,

I’ve always thought telling your mom face-to-face is the way to tell her. Casually say "Mom...I got my period. Isn't that great?" Some girls find this difficult so if you can't tell her face-to-face, try writing her a note and leaving it in a place only she will find it or text her. Another way is when you can go shopping with hercasually toss a box of your favorite menstrual protection into the cart. Finally, you can just let her see your soiled panties. She'll get the message.

 

I do know you will be pleased you have let mom know. Your mom can be a big help when it comes to having periods. She remembers what starting your period is like and will want to be a part of this with you.

 

Good luck,

Your BeingGirl Experts

I need advice from ecperianced girls to tell me exactly what to expect, but not like have heavy my flow will be (cause you dont know), but like how it feels or how most moms react... I dont have a big sister so I have no idea how or what she (my mom)does when it comes to menstrilation and puberty... Im scared and I just need a little (or a lot) of help from the older girls on here.

Well I have a preety interesting predicament on my hands, I'm 14 almost 15 (5 days till bday). Ive been having my period for over a year and a half, but the problem is I have yet to tell my mom. My sister, who got her period after me has already told her, but I just don't know how because I can never seem to find a time when my mom is alone, and its very awkward for me to try and tell her. My period is also relatively heavy and I usually get cramps. I hope somebody will be able to help. Your confused friend Xavia

Last Sunday I got a reddish brown spot in my undies. I didn't tell my mom so the undies are in the wash. I don't have any proof to tell her. I don't even know if it's my period. She got hers when she was 14 I'm only 11. Any advice anyone?

I havent really gotten mine. Thats some good advice though. I thought about when it comes like pretending to like know something down while shes close to the bathroom and take one of the shelf that she keeps for me.
