Tips for managing your period

  • Try wearing a liner on a daily basis. They're great for absorbing discharge and if your period starts unexpectedly, you won’t ruin your underwear.
  • Carry some pads with you so you’re always prepared.
  • Mark the date in your diary when your period starts. Once your period becomes regular you'll start to notice it follows a pattern.
  • Set up reminders on your phone as to when to expect your next period. There are free period tracker apps especially for doing this.

Hewo! Ummmm....just letting you know about irregular periods. I got my first period in 7th grade, eight days before I turned 13. It was not very enjoyable. Then I waited 6 WHOLE months before I got my second period. So don't worry if your takes a long time because mine took a very long time to come back.

Hi, my periods are so irregular too, Princess. Well so far. I started my period in late April this year and I have only just got my second period now, in mid June. It is sooo annoying, why can't they be regular? But the main sign I would look out for is a change in discharge, it should turn more white and also jelly like and thicker. You can read my first period story on the Tell us your first period story blog. I recommend that you check it out. Ciao for now - Strawberry 3 xx

period app

I started to use the period tracker app called Clue on my phone. It's really easy to use and it's also free which is nice. I really recommend it!

i started

I started my period yesterday (am 13) and I just marked my calendar in my room since I don't have a phone. I'm kinda scared though that my period will be irregular, I hope not!
