Your thoughts (169)

Let’s talk about your P-E-R-I-O-D. Menstruation! That thing that happens to every single girl in the entire world.

It’s our bodies, and it’s our responsibilities to know how they work.

Let’s answer some of your concerns

Nkiru from Enugu: “I’m already 15! And I haven’t started my period yet. All my friends are teasing me, saying I’m still a kid. Am I normal?”

You are fine! Chill.

Most girls start menstruating between age 12- 13 years. Some girls start as late as 16 years.
Ask your mom how old was she when she got her first period. Things like that can be hereditary.
Also, girls who are into athletics or smaller frame sometimes have delayed periods.
Some girls don’t get their periods because of hormone imbalances or even severe stress.
Talk to a health professional if you are over 16 years and yet to see your period

Zara from Kano: *“I’m 18 and I notice there’s an irregular cycle to my period. I even have twice a month and the flow is so heavy! Help me!” *

On average, a woman will get her period for 3 to 7 days once a month. But the amount of blood shed during a period varies. Some women have heavier periods than the others. Here are some common causes of irregular periods:

  • Stress. It is the most common cause of irregular periods
  • Diet. Avoid high-fat, high sugar
  • Exercise. To menstruate normally, your body needs to have a certain amount of fat and nutrients. If you’re training hard (and we mean hard!) for sports, sometimes this can stop your period from happening regularly.

Never be afraid to seek answers. If you’re worried, ask your mom. If she doesn’t know what’s wrong, ask your doctor. If they don’t know, ask another doctor. It’s your body, it’s your life, and it’s your choice to make.

Hey Fame! Not all the time. In calculating your period/menstrual circle, note that the first day of your period is also the first day of your menstrual circle and the last day of your period is not the last day of your circle but the last day of your period. The duration/flow depends on individual. The last day of your cycle is day before your next period starts. For example, if your period started on the 1st of April and your next period starts on the 3rd of May, your cycle will be 2nd of May. This means that your cycle lasts for 31 days. Your new cycle starts again from the 1st day of your next period. Please note that your period can be delayed at sometimes and can also come earlier than normal. We hope this helps.

Hey Zahra! Periods last from 2 days - 7 days depending on the individual. Some people see their periods twice a month because menstrual circle is from 21 days to 35 days (depending on the individual). Some also get their periods 13 times a month instead of the regular 12 times (once a month). From our calculation, your circle is not less than 21 days so you really have nothing to worry about. All you need to do is to check out how many days your whole circle lasted in the past 3 - 5 months to know how your many days your menstrual circle lasts. There are various reasons for irregular periods as it is called but we suggest you still talk to a trusted adult and see a doctor about this. We hope this helps.

I think I'm a weird monster from space. All the girls in the class has started their period and I haven't. I'm underdeveloped at 13 what's happening

Hey Kobocity! First of all, you are not a weird monster and you are not from space. Also, you are not underdeveloped too. Like the Nkiru in the article who is 15 and has not started her period yet, you are absolutely normal. While some people may enter puberty as early as age 9, some may not enter until 16. This doesn't make them abnormal. There isn't a set age when girls start their periods, it changes with everyone. Do not be worried, It will come in due time. In the meantime, take this time to prepare yourself, make sure you have pads on hand for when it decides to start and read all the stories here about periods. You can also ask your friends to share their experience with you. We still advise that you talk to a trusted adult and see a doctor if you still feel uncomfortable. We hope this helps.

Hey girl! In calculating your ovulation day, day one is the first day of the menstrual period and the last day is the day before the next period begins. Ovulation happens about two weeks before the next expected period. So if your average menstrual cycle is 28 days, you ovulate around day 14. We hope this helps.

It is much possible because a girl starts her period two years after her breast are fully developed and if it might be hereditary that she has small breast she could start

Hey Samstar! It is not true. @Star, growing breasts has nothing to do with periods. Remember, there are some ladies who have been seeing their periods for years and do not have big breasts. There are also mothers who do not still have big breasts even after they have breast fed their babies. Growing breast is totally hormonal and has nothing to do with periods. We hope this helps.

Hey Star! This is because the flow isn't so heavy on the first day of the period. So it comes out gradually. There are different types of discharge that comes out at different times of the month. Some are clear and stretchy, some are clear and watery. So it is only normal to have watery discharge at some point in the month. We hope this helps.

Hey Zoe! When we say monthly cycle, what we mean is either 21 days or 35 days (depending on your cycle). It does not have to start on the 1st of the month and end on the last day. It can start at the end of the month but as long as it lasts up to 21 or 35 days as the case may be with your menstrual cycle, that is all that matters. What you need to do is to track your period using a calendar to know how long your cycle is. Please note that menstrual cycles last from 21 -35 days depending on the individual. So if someone's cycle is for 21-28 days, she is likely to see it twice a month sometimes (not all the time). If she sees it twice every month, please advise her to talk to a trusted adult and see a doctor. We hope this helps.

Hey Springster! Thanks for the comment. You need to learn to calculate your period so that there won't be assumptions and panic when you have to start guessing when your period is meant to come. Periods lasts from 28 - 35 days so you have to know how long your period lasts for by calculating.

Your new cycle starts again from the 1st day of your next period. Please note that your period can be delayed at sometimes and can also come earlier than normal. We hope this helps.

Hey Adex125! Yes, it is dear. You are not alone in this. So many girls feel pain when they are on their period. You can try any of these easy solutions to stop the pains; have a hot bath, place a hot water bottle on your tummy, take a walk or take some pain killers as prescribed by a doctor or certified pharmacist. However, if the pain persists, please talk to a trusted adult and see a doctor. We hope this helps.

The signs my body give me before the onset of menstruation is very annoying. Do you think that I can use medicines to counterfeit such signals like sever itching of the nipple

Is it abnormal to menstruate every 21 days

Hey Divinepower! No, it is not abnormal to menstruate every 21 days. Regular menstrual cycles last for 21-35 days depending on the individual. So it is perfectly normal to have a cycle that lasts for 21 days. We hope this helps

pls when does menstrual circle start nd how long is your period supposed to last nd is it alright for period to be irregular.

Hey princessbetty! Periods are different for everyone. We all do not have the same menstrual cycle. What you need to do is to learn how to calculate your period. In calculating your period/menstrual circle, note that the first day of your period is also the first day of your menstrual circle and the last day of your period is not the last day of your circle but the last day of your period. The duration/flow depends on the individual. The last day of your cycle is the day before your next period starts. For example, if your period started on the 1st of April and your next period starts on the 3rd of May, your cycle will be 2nd of May. This means that your cycle lasts for 31 days. Your new cycle starts again from the 1st day of your next period. Please note that your period can be delayed at sometimes and can also come earlier than normal. We hope this helps.

Hi big sister. I want to know why some people have varying menstrual periods. For instance. Girl XYZ menstruate for 7days in August then 4days in September. Dies it mean that the quality of her eggs is declining

Hey MilaRhay! No dear, the quality of her egg is not declining. What happens is that her period is not regular. Also, what you eat can also affect your period. When you eat healthy, you will notice that your menstrual flow is thicker and the blood is very red. Try to eat healthy but if you still notice these signs, you should talk to a trusted adult and see a doctor. We hope this helps

there is nothing wrong with u .your body is different from theirs

Hi springster it depends on individuals so don't panic. Girls experience their periods from 11_18 u still have many years ahead of u, so don't worry. Like me I experienced mine at 12 years. Hope it helps. Thanks.

Hey jessica! Thanks for the comment. In calculating your period/menstrual circle, note that the first day of your period is also the first day of your menstrual circle and the last day of your period is not the last day of your circle but the last day of your period. The duration/flow depends on the individual. The last day of your cycle is the day before your next period starts. For example, if your period started on the 1st of April and your next period starts on the 3rd of May, your cycle will be 2nd of May. This means that your cycle lasts for 31 days. Your new cycle starts again from the 1st day of your next period. Please note that your period can be delayed at sometimes and can also come earlier than normal. We hope this helps.

Hey Margret! Thanks for the comment. Some people have menstrual pain while some do not. it is not something to be worried about. Every girl has different signs and symptoms when she gets her period. For some, it may just be slight discomfort while others may feel extreme pain and like you, may vomit, stool and still have cramps. All of this depends on the individual. But please, talk to a trusted adult and also see a doctor. We hope this helps.
