Answer #2

I’m fourteen and still havn’t started mine. I get discharage like so bad that I have to wear pads in my underwear. I hate t wear pads when I’m not even on my period. by the time I do start, I’ll wanna wear tampons. I read somewhere that six months after you start getting discharge, is when u’ll start. I starte getting really bad discharge towards the beginning of this year. if school started in august, then I’ll probably start in…February or so. I don’t know but I’m tired of all of my friends saying stuff about theirs. I feel like such a loser just standing there changing for gym practically by myself because all of the other girls change in th bathrooms when they’re on their periods. I’m just so surprised that everyone else is just like me. I hope mine will come soon so I’ll get rid of this discharge shit. :/

But, I’ll use the restroom and I’ll have this goowy stuff in my underwear, then somethimes it’s like crusty. I can’t talk to my mom about this becuase I don’t know what she’d say. My nipples always hurt! My doctor says I’m going to start my period but, it’s been 3 months and nothing! My friends younger cousin hasn’t had her period yet but she has almost D boobs. :L Am I ever going to start my period and what is the goowy stuff that is in my underwear? Will anyone help me?

Answer #14

I know I’m the same. all my friends have started and its kinda annoying when their all talkin about it. just don’t freak out.thats what I’m trying to do. I know we all don’t wanna be one of those girls who didn’t start until they were 19!but sstill just because your thirteen doesn’t been its too late. you probbs end up starting in a thew months. if you wan’t to make your self esteem higher you could try asking for a bra and shaving. this might make you feel more grown up until you start your period and you won’t be as left out. you have the whole summer holls to transform yourself into a woman. try at first asking to shave and then when your with you mum shopping ask for a bra. get yourself a new haircut and when you get back to school you will feel older. if your having discharge like me for ages don’t worry.our periods should be coming in either 6 to 18 months. gud look and hope you don’t feel too down. I had a great talk with my mum. it contained a lot of tears about low self esteem but know I’m ok and I can accept that I’m not a freak and I should start my periods soon. if it helps create targets for yourself. my target are to get a bra, permission to shave and to start hormonal and body changes by the time I go back to school. sometimes it just gives you some patience and guidelines.

Answer #15

so? we’re all different. This is normal, or at least within normal range. What worries me is that I realize I’ve had that “discharge” all my life, as long as I can remember. Now THAT’S freaky. In fact my sister and my two friends started when they were nine. Also in fourth grade all the girls had boobs except me. I was known as “flat-zilla” by the guys, who were very shallow. as for what “understandingchick” says, I’m SO annoyed by that. When my mom doesn’t notice I don’t wear a bra because I don’t care if it isn’t “proper” in public, and I also don’t shave. maybe once in a while for the feel of smooth legs haha but really, seriously, not everyone wants to be like that, you don’t have to listen to her if you don’t want to.

Answer #16

Well It’s probally becuase of your weight. Are you under weight for your height? If you are, thats probally the reason why you have not started your period yet. Your body needs a certain amount of fat to have your hormones working properly and if you do not have enough fat on your body, and you are over the age of 14 and is under weight, this can cause serious health problems later in life and can probally lead to cancer. Im 24 and I have me PHD in medical care so I recommend, if you have an eating disorder, or you are to skinny for your height, then start gaining weight in a HEALTHY way to start your menstrol cycle and eventually start your period.

Answer #17

Seriously - don’t worry. I’m near the same age as you (a bit younger) and I haven’t started yet but if you worry about it then the longer it will seem before it happens. Also everyone starts at different times. If your mum started later then you probably will too.
