From that, you can see that you may experience a different kind of discharge, mood changes, food cravings, headches, cramping, acne, and loss of energy. Every girl is different though so you might only experience one of those, none, or even all symptoms. Take care of yourself and you'll notice the symptoms won't be too bad.
Remember to also carry a pad around with you in your purse or pocket for just-in-case emergencies. Practice applying the pad to your panties beforehand, too, so you know what you're doing and how it feels to wear a pad (do not do this with tampons though as it may be dangerous to your health and well-being).
Talk with your mom and listen to what she has experienced in the past. A lot of times what she had experienced will relate to what you should expect, including the age she started her periods and when she currently expects them during the month. Relax for now and enjoy being period-problems free! :) [ Peeps's advice column | Ask Peeps A Question ]

xoMarisox answered Monday February 27 2006, 9:22 pm: It's different for every girl. Here are some signs:
-cramps or your "stomach" hurts
-you've been getting a lot of discharge
-it's around the time when you mom got it
-if there is brown stuff in your underwear
When I first got it, it was very little and no big deal. I didn't even need a pad or anything. Just go to the nurse and ask for a pad if you are really scared when you get it. Otherwise, don't worry and be thankful that you don't have it yet! :] [ xoMarisox's advice column | Ask xoMarisox A Question ]
ShYbl0nD3 answered Monday February 27 2006, 5:23 pm: its different for every girl. but some signs are a lower stomach ache, a moody personality like sencetive or grouchy, pain in legs, maybe a head ache. your discharge might get heavier. And if your not sure when your going to get it, like during school for instance, keep a pad with you. just in case. and maybe dont wear any light pants, just so it doesnt show as much if you would happen to leak alittle. and usually your first one isnt as heavy as some others so it shouldnt be too bad. good luck! and if your lucky it will come over the weekend where you can get somewhat comfterble with it before you go back to school.

tasuki answered Monday February 27 2006, 4:33 pm: Okay, ignore what netsirk07 said. Everybody is different. The first time I got it there was quite a bit of blood. Also, it happened in the middle of school and I had no pads or anything. I was wearing black pants, so I got through the day without anyone noticing. Basically, you might get really angry or start crying a lot, have food cravings, have an acne breakout, and feel bloated.
jammy12 answered Monday February 27 2006, 3:45 pm: Symptoms are really differnt and it varies. I relly didn't have any except a little bit of discharge and I got the flu. The maid gave me some tea to drink and wen I woke up I got it! You have to realise it can happen at any time and if I were you keep a pad or Tp wen going anywhere! you might get relly horrid belly aches, mysterious flu, your head aches, you body hurts and sometimes you can't stand to be outdoors. If this happens though it might not be the same day. And you should try using a panty shield...so it will not mess you up in school and you don't have to worry about it!
Chill out it will come in time! [ jammy12's advice column | Ask jammy12 A Question ]
kristen22 answered Monday February 27 2006, 12:40 pm: Symptoms are different for everbody, While some girls go through hell and back that 1 week out of the month, 4 sum, it's just a minor set back. I think we can all agree to some variation that we all have maybe leg pains, lower stomach pains, feel irritable or have headaches. It has been my experience, and I am fixing to turn 24 that your period only seems to come on that one Saturday night that you've been waiting for 4 like a month. lol :) [ kristen22's advice column | Ask kristen22 A Question ]
KiSSxMYxPEARLS answered Monday February 27 2006, 7:17 am: Your stomach will hurt soo much. It`s not even like a tummy ache. It just hurts like a bitch. They`re called cramps. Sometimes you get cramps that makes you cry. Ugh. Since you haven`t started your period yet, I would suggest carring around a pad. Just for starters. I know this will sound so retarded, but you`ll just know when you get it. [ KiSSxMYxPEARLS's advice column | Ask KiSSxMYxPEARLS A Question ]
FewAndFarBetween answered Monday February 27 2006, 4:53 am: Some physical pre-menstrual symptoms will probably be things like back pain, lower stomach cramps and bloating. Emotionally, you may feel depressed or extra sensitive to things that normally wouldn't upset you. Before your period, you may also crave certain foods, like chocolate.
