When does a girl usually get her first period?
In the United States, the average age is 12. This does not mean that all girls start at the same age. A girl can start her period anytime between the ages of eight and 15. Usually, the first period starts about two years after breasts first start to grow. If a girl has not had her first period by age 15, or if it has been more than two to three years since breast growth started, she should see a doctor.

I m going to start using tampons for the first time on my next period. I bought them already and took a look at them. I start my next period in about a week. Is it weird that I m sort of looking forward to it so I can try out the tampons??
I am a 23 year old female with two children, ages 2 and 6 months. I recently began norethindrone as birth control. I have been taking it for about 3 months (give or take). When I first took it, I almost immediately got my period. The period was shorter than usual and much more comfortable (less cramping). It was a relief to finally get my period back post partum. Then, when I was due to get my period the next cycle I was 16 days late! I was so afraid I would be pregnant because I had been late taking a couple pills (but never skipped). I also experience mood swings and nausea that made me feel I had become pregnant. I have now been bleeding for 14 days straight. It first began with tons of cramping and pain that felt like pressure bearing down from within my vagina. It made it difficult to walk. It eventually went away after several hours and brought on my period. The period tapered off, thinking I was finished but then came back with a vengeance. Day 12 me and my husand gave up and decided to have sex regardless, it was very messy and we had to stop because there was so much blood. First clear stuff came out, then blood, and then a bright red-pinkish jelly but NOT a blood clot. Then Day 13, I bled heavily soaking several pads within a short time of eachother. Today, Day 14 I have been passing clots all day long ranging in size from nickel to silver dollar sized. It is uncomfortable and I feel slightly cramping and bloated but not in pain. I am worried I may be having a miscarriage? But I took a preg test when I was 2 weeks late and it came up negative.
It s been two weeks and I have these weird headaches in the afternoon around 6-8 and a lil nausea sometimes ... They get a lil better when I sleep for like fifteen to twenty minutes ... What s the cause and cure moreover are these stress pain because probably I m thinking to much these days and worried about m my studies
