Getting your  period is perfectally normal at that age it just means that your hormones are changing. If you     cant talk to your mom or sister talk to another woman  you are close to teacher, nurse friends mom anyone. If i were you i would stick to pads in my opinion you are too young to use tampons and they are very tricky and can be unsafe if not used right, so stick to pads for now. Other then that you will be fine it is perfectally normal.

You dont need to get scared...its fine that you have got your perios at age of 11...there are girls younger than you at 9 years of age they have got their periods...its all due to the hormonal changes, no one to blame for it..just speak to your mom, tell her that this is what has happened..you dont need to be ashamed of anything...stick to using pads, avoid tampons, they can cause hurt and infection both.
