When did you get your first period?

Ages vary, depends on the girl.

that's why i said usually. :-)

Ah, i get it. sorry, I took that to be a part of the sentence before it... I thought you were saying that you're a guy usually... the "?" meaning perhaps you weren't sure...

In my defence, some people just say odd things.

@peaceloveboys I don't get bad cramps usually, but i don't think heat pads are going to work while your walking around or at school/work. Though Panadol usually does help.
Report as
like i said, use ibeprofin 4 school and heating pads at home.

There are special heating pads that you can get, that attach to your underwear/skin in the area. They're skinnier than a pad-- no one will notice, especially if you have a dress or longer shirt on-- but even if you don't, they're practically invisible. They last for up to 8 hours according to the packaging, but I've had mine work for 12 or more. You can get them at pharmacies, like CVS or whatever, usually in the same aisle as the pads/tampons (although sometimes they're put with the rest of the heating pads). As someone who suffers from unimaginable cramping, they're a life saver!

Oh... also, staying away from Midol will help tremendously. Midol and Excedrin both have caffeine in them, which causes more pain for you in the end! Stick to ibuprofen/Advil or naproxen/Aleeve-- and don't forget, if you're still in pain AFTER that, see an OB/Gyn right away, because it could be a sign of a deeper issue-- and trust me when I say, it's better to deal with that sooner rather than later! <3

Report as
yes, that is really early :P
Report as
Well some people develop earlier than others, but it isn't that unusual to have 17 yr old who haven't had their period yet, so you still have time. (i think. I don't actually know your age)
Report as
you poor thing-that was sooo early! I know you got dogged for it in school!
Report as
Well it sucked to get it so early, but i'm not really open about things like that with my friends, so it was alright at school :)

I had one period at age 13, then went a whole year before I had my second one, they then became pretty reg. The maturity of an individual can but doesnt always play a roll in when she will eventually start. But the more you worry and fret, the more likely you yourself can affect negativly, the onset. So relax and take it one day at a time.
