    Woah, everyone else seems to have started really early compared to me. I was 13, almost 14.

    I was twelve-ish I think, my mum and younger sister were both ten so i reckon i got off lightly. Although, i did start mine the day i'd woken to find my guinea pig dead, ten minutes later i realised i'd got my period, what a fun day that was! so much crying!

    Even though I started at 13, I was very irregular until I was about 16. Sometimes I used to wait months between periods. When I was 14 I didn't have one for 6 months. I wasn't underweight or anything in fact I used to be a bit overweight.

    I started in the summer holidays between year 6 and 7, so I was 11. I'm glad I didn't start in Primary school though I was sort of expecting to, because the girls in my class who did had to use the disabled toilet (only one with a sanitary disposal bin thing), which no-one else ever used because nobody in the school used a wheelchair. I think the embarrassment of having to go in there and everyone knowing I had started my period would have been too much to bear.
    Oh yes I remember having to use the staff toilets whilst on my period at Junior school, as none of the kids loos had facilities, my (male) headteacher caught me leaving once, and thought I was up to no good, rather embarrassing, for him especially when I explained why I was in there!!!!
