First Period & Vaginal Discharge | Puberty


Okay. So you’re getting ready to have your period. Ask most adult women when their first period
was and many of them are going to have a story for you. The truth is that most women, every woman
for that matter, has their period at one time or another. All of these puberty hormones that are causing
different changes in your body are also getting your body ready to have a baby one day if
you so choose. So this is what’s going on and why you’re
menstruating. One of the first signs that your period is
on it’s way is vaginal discharge which may sound weird, but you may notice a clear to
a milky white discharge coming from between your legs, that sort of sticks to your underwear
or you’re not sure what it is. That can happen a few months to even a year
before you get your period. It’s totally normal, it’s a sign that your
period may be on it’s way and you just need to wear a panty liner in your underwear just
to protect it. What you need to remember is there’s no really
set pattern, especially when your period begins. Don’t flip out if you get your period and
it doesn’t stick around for too long. Eventually it’s going to get into a set pattern
where it lasts about 28 to 31 days on average and you bleed for four to seven days roughly
on average. Some people bleed more, some people bleed
less. You just need to remember, we all develop
at our own pace and if you’re wondering when you’re period’s going to come, it’s usually
about two to two and a half years after your breasts develop, and if it doesn’t happen
then a good way to predict is to look at your mom’s cycle or your first degree relative,
like a sister or an aunt or a grandma. Usually it runs in your family. So if your mom got her period around 14 you
can expect to get it around there, too. Don’t worry if you experience a lot of physical
and emotional signs that go along with getting your period. You may experience sore breasts, you may have
mood swings, you may feel bloated, you may have cramps. All of these are normal symptoms and signs
that go along with having your period. So don’t worry, every woman goes through it
and you’ll get through it, too.
