ccupcake07 answered Monday October 20 2008, 11:10 am: If you have any brown or red stains that means you started. When i first started, i didn't want to tell my mom either, but you have to tell her because she has to buy you pads or tampons. It's not bad after you just say it quick. If you started go up to your mom and say "Mom, i started." That's all you say. If you don't want to tell her in person, say it over the phone (that's what i did). Hope this helps! Good luck!

If you're actually having blood come out of your vagina, then you've started. It should last a few days. You may need to tell your mom because I'm not sure how else you're going to be able to get yourself pads or tampons. You'll need to wear something so it doesn't leak through - no way of getting around that.
There is such a thing as a "pre period". It's when you get spotting for a day or so. Spotting is basically just a little bit of blood. You can get it between periods, and most girls can get spotting months before their period or right before they start.
Unfortunately, though, you must be 13 years or older to use this website, so I'm going to have to ban you.
If you need more help on this issue, try using yahoo answers or using google; there are a lot of articles and sites with great information on this!
dearkaleighh answered Monday October 20 2008, 10:36 am: well, believe me you will know when you start your period.
but, it may be embarrassing to talk to your mom about it but it will save you the embarrassment of getting in somewhere where you don't have anything to cover it up..
for instence if you don't talk to her and you get it in..
idk lets say school, then it will show through your pants.
it seems embarassing to talk to them but they have been through it too and they're not going to laugh at you or make jokes.
i was scared to tell my mom at first too but once i did now it feels like i can talk to her about anything. [ dearkaleighh's advice column | Ask dearkaleighh A Question ]
