Okay i am 13 years old and i got my period at 10. At first my period would go off then go regularly. But now its flowing okay. But now on this week it supposed to come on. I dont know if its going to come on this week. But i do masturbate time to time. But i know i Cant get pregnant from that. So is this normal. Or should i worry. Please give me your advice.
MrWombat answered Saturday June 22 2013, 7:52 pm: I wouldn't worry about your period being a bit irregular - you are 13. The only thing is the possibility that you may be anorexic or something, which is a possibility at your age.
adviceman49 answered Saturday June 22 2013, 10:26 am: Masturbation and your period have nothing to do with each other. Most likely if your period is late it is due to stress.
We have seen a large number of questions on this subject this week from young girls your age. My answer to them and you is this.
Stress will cause your period to be late or even missed. Given the time of year it is you have been studying for finals, possibly for the first time as a high school student, This is very stressful. This also causes you to have a change in diet, and lifestyle. All of these things individually can affect a women's menstrual cycle. Combine them and it is almost a certainty.
Now your period is also a normal bodily function just like any other bodily function you have. Your mom has the same bodily function. You should not be embarrassed to go to mom with questions such as these.
I understand that you think the first thing mom is going to do is possibly yell or scream at you is that have you been having sex and are you pregnant. You can avoid this by simply saying up front. "Mom I am a virgin and my period is late." "Is there something wrong, do I need to see a doctor?"
I don't think you need to see a doctor for as I said I think it is the stress of final exams and the end of the school year at work here. I will also let you in on a little secrete. Most moms are well aware of their daughters cycle and look for signs that their periods have come. My mom would check the wastepaper basket in the bathroom my sister and I shared for signs my sisters period arrived. I caught her checking one of my sister discarded sanitary napkins one Saturday morning.
I'm fairly certain you mom is well aware of when you period is due and is either not concerned at this time or waiting for you to come to her. So be proactive and tell her. Take her aside and start by disarming her with the fact that you are not sexually active. Then tell her your period is late. I'm positive mom will be understanding and helpful.

IrishGirl123 answered Saturday June 22 2013, 9:20 am: I'm also 13 and I got it at 11. For me, Ive never miss one since my first one! I can usually tell when it is coming, I feel pains or I feel like throwing up, this starts to happens a week before. I did masturbate before but be careful because if you are masturbating a day or two before it is due try not to go too deep because you could break the lining and bring your period on early I know this from experience. Good luck [ IrishGirl123's advice column | Ask IrishGirl123 A Question ]

Using fingers or even dildo or vibrator can be used at any time, whether having your period flow or not. Older couples who've been together a while, find it great to have sex while she is flowing. It's messy but it is one of the best lubricants. And once you start the sexual activity, the flow will actually hold off for a while, like the hour that you are making out and as soon as you finish, it starts up again. Always wash yourselves well in a shower after, and the same for sex toys, always wash well. There is no limit to how much is okay to masturbate so you can do it as often as you like. As long as it doesn't interfere with your regular life and school, no problem. I would like to recommend to you a site that is especially geared for young teens through college age, its on youtube. The name is Sex Plus by Laci Green. Her videos are all in the 3-4 min range, packed with very helpful info. She knows what she is talking about and she's funny, college age herself. Topics range from dating, relationships, learning about your body parts and how they work, sexual topics, gender types,rape, abuse, everything. She's on FB but there's way more info on her youtube site. If there aren't many videos showing, click on the number of videos next to her name. Tell your friends about her site. Its very important. Even at grandma age, I find her reviews of new products helpful info that I can pass on to others. [ Dragonflymagic's advice column | Ask Dragonflymagic A Question ]
