So I had my first period on January 21, 2019. February came around...didn't have one. Then March came. The day that it was supposed to start...I was getting ready for school and I had to use the bathroom. I went to the bathroom and then when I wiped there was blood on the TP and at that time I didn't have a pad on. And there was nothing in my panties. I put on a pad thinking that it had started. That afternoon I went to the bathroom and there was nothing in the pad. I ignored it and thought "oh maybe its just a warning symbol that its really abt to start" but no. Other than those 5 minutes I was in the bathroom there was nothing. Then April skipped too and I'm worried now bc I'm not counting those 5 minutes as a period bc I don't think it was and I'm really confused.

When you start out having period they can be very irregular. This is common and absolutely normal and is your body going through puberty and building up towards having a cycle. This has no bearing on your final adult cycle, health, happiness or anything else.

So there's nothing to worry about here and it sounds like you've made good decisions throughout and are well prepared. If you're concerned though you should talk to an adult you trust, school nurse or doctor.

If you are young and just started your period in the past year or two, this is very normal. In the first year I started my period, I had a whole 12 months where I didn't get my period again. Then last year when I was 21 (virgin), I had a few months where I also had no period. Then it came back again. I thought nothing about it and didn't even get it checked out. I was also healthy and normal weight. It's also normal for me to have very irregular periods. Now I get a period every month but my cycle varies each month.

Are you a normal weight? Because weight and lifestyle can affect periods.

It is completely normal for it to skip months and come at different times when you first start. Just keep a record of it so you know roughly when it should come, if it has/hasn’t, and for how long etc and then possibly talk to your doctor if you are becoming concerned. At the moment, nothing to worry about!

you have just started periods so expect them to not always be regular.
