What are the signs of your first period starting?

I'm 13, and curious because I think I'm about to start soon, & I think I have a lot of the signs well the ones that I found on the Internet I only found back aches stomach aches head aches. I talked to my mom already and she said she got hers around when she was 13.

Well I noticed mine was coming one, because I felt a little bit weird. Your abdominal area will feel a little bit achy, and for some reason I actually began cramping a long time before (not full cramps, but a strong aching pain down below). Mostly, I just woke up and there it was (awkward.). Another sign is puberty, so if you have never gotten zits, pimples, ect. before and you are getting them now, that's another sign. Female "growth" also links in, however that was a year before I got my period. Good luck with everything.

You will never know when your first period will start, It will just happen so it is best to be prepared for when you start to bleed all over your undies. Go to the supermarket and buy a pack of light liners. Your first period won't be as heavy as each month over the next 40 years. So carrying them in your purse/pocket to be prepared when it happens. Have a clean pair of underpants also in your purse and a cloth to clean yourself up if its really messy in public. Talk to a adult (your mum for instances) and talk to her about how it is going to be with having periods and what to expect. Good luck with becoming a woman!

The first signs of your period commencing differ among individuals and may include a whitish discharge from the vagina and some breast tenderness. However, apart from the normal pubescent signs like hair growth in armpits, there are no precluding signs.
