adviceman49 answered Monday August 1 2011, 11:12 am: Hi, I know you may find getting your period embarrassing,especially at such a young age. It shouldn't be. Your period is a normal bodily function for a young lady. Your period says a lot about you and your development, things that we as parents need to know so that we can guide you through these times; so that you can continue to grow and mature into a healthy young lady.
You have to trust me here when I say this and I say this to help you. Mom has been through this and whether you are her youngest or oldest child she remembers what it felt like to get her first period. She may not be expecting you to get yours this early but she is ready to teach you the proper way to care for yourself. She will also tell you things you need to know and what to expect as you go through puberty.
You are entering a wonderful and confusing time in a young women's life. Your mother can be a big help to you during this time. You should never be embarrassed or ashamed to go to mom with questions concerning the changes that will occur as you go through puberty. Mom can also be a big help in how to deal with boys but that is something you can choose to go to mom with or not.
So to answer your question: Just take mom aside; out of earshot of your brothers or sisters and tell her; "mom I got my period. As I said this is a normal bodily function and one mom knows is coming. She is waiting, I'm sure for you to tell her so she can help you. [ adviceman49's advice column | Ask adviceman49 A Question ]

KlutzyKim answered Monday August 1 2011, 10:40 am: Your mom, like yourself, is also female. Obviously, haha. She'll be so happy when you tell her. The day before I got my period, I had such bad cramps I couldn't move at all. My mom told me I was probably going to get it that day or the next. The next day I did and when I came out of the bathroom and told her, she hugged me and had a huge smile on her face.
She then proceeded to call my aunt and half-sisters about the news...
ANYWAY, don't be embarrassed. She's your mom. Depending on when she got her period, she's probably expecting you to get yours soon.
Just walk up to her, or bring her into a room so you can both be alone, and say, "Mom, I got my period."
acetrace92 answered Monday August 1 2011, 4:32 am: Well, you just have to buck up and tell her! There's nothing at all to be ashamed of, and most mom's are very happy for their daughters when they are told, as it means that you are growing up! It's a step into womanhood, and all women go through it. If you're embarrassed to tell her too directly, next time you are at the store just throw some pads into the shopping cart and she will probably get the hint :D [ acetrace92's advice column | Ask acetrace92 A Question ]
