    I was 13, at a drama rehearsal at school in december. I think I knew at the beginning of the session that it had finally come, but was engaged in a big argument with my best friend (later blamed on PMS!). I went to the loo at the end of the rehearsal and was like "****".

    My best friend has just told me that she went to the doctor's today because she still hasn't started yet, she has to go for a blood test on Monday. She will be 17 in November. Is this really unusual? I was 13, I just assumed she'd started already!

    beginning of December of year 9, had turned 14 in the October. I spent most of year 8 thinking there was something wrong with me and that I wouldn't be able to have kids, because all the other girls except a couple, who were stick thin (I was a bit of a chubbster), had started. I remember being insanely jealous that the other girls could talk about their periods, and often felt left out. By the time i started it wasn't like a major thing anymore. I never told my mum, she just kind of realised over time when i kept nicking all her santary items, and blood stained underwear turned up in the wash.

    i remember a week or so before it came I had terrible stomach craps and my friend and I were convinced I had appendicitis...finally realised once it had come that it must've just been period pain.

    I think I was 9 when I had my first one, but I didn't have proper periods until I was about 11.
    Didn't know what it was at first.
