Dear BeingGirl Experts,

BeingGirl Experts, my friend is 11, and she has these signs of her period. They are: some (or little) pubic hair, little hair on her armpits, she has to shave her legs, she has buds, and discharge. Do you know how long it'll be 'til she gets her period?

 

Katie

Dear Katie,

Your friend is definitely going through puberty! When her period will arrive is still a guess. Breast development, hair under the arms and in the pubic area, a growth spurt and a white/clear vaginal discharge are all signs that one's body is maturing. She is definitely headed in the right direction; she should just hang in there. 

 

For more information on puberty and first menstrual periods, read the My Period section on BeingGirl.com.

 

Hope this is helpful,

Your BeingGirl Experts

i was wondering... i have boobs and armpit hair since last year, and a short period after that, hair down there. Lately i have been getting pains in my stomach, like they come in waves. I am 13. My mom got her period when she was 14 and my older sister got hers when she was 13. is my period coming soon?

CelineXov, It sounds like your period is right around the corner! Normally right before your period comes you will see a little blood. Some people call it "the warning" it's like warning/preparing you for your period. You might wanna get prepared by buying pads or if you wanna use tampons (slim). Good luck!

Skittles321, I know it's frightening talking to your mom about it! Trust me I know what your going through! My best advice to you is to just tell her. I know it's probably not what you were hoping to hear but just do it. you will be happy you did! Your a girl! Your mom is probably expecting it around this time! Your mom is gonna know at some point in your life you might as well just tell her now. Just get it over with! Trust me! I survived it, you will too! I wish you the best of luck! :D

I <3 Zebrastards, I know exactly what's happening to you. And what is going on with your body is completely normal! Your getting these "warnings" and thats when you get little brown/red discharge which isn't your period. What is is for is to prepare/warn you that your period is around the corner. You should probably get Prepared by buying pads or tampons (I suggest slim if you choose to use them). For pads I suggest always infinity and for tampons I suggest tampax. Good luck:D
