Thanks for your query.
This is onset of menarche,your periods have started,and the cramps you are having is also associated with it.
You will have your regular periods in few months,initial few cycles are irregular.
Relax,it is a transition phase in your life,you can discuss it with your mother or elder sister.

Wishing you good health.
God bless

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Its time for you to transform yourself into a young lady.
It seems that you have started your periods.
This process will start in this way.The initial months will be erratic.But in a few months time you will have regular periods.
Till then neither the time nor the amount will be stable.
Ask your mom if you panic.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.Hope this answers your query.Enjoy womanhood.Have a nice day.
