Question and answer
  • QUESTION How will I know when to expect my first period?
  • ANSWER It can be a bit upsetting not knowing exactly when your period is going to arrive. Wouldn't it be great if we got a letter in the mail saying that our period would start on March 16th? But we don't. However, our body does give us signs that we are getting ready to start periods. First of all, you grow. You get taller, your hips widen and your breasts start to develop. You grow underarm and pubic hair. The next thing to look for is a whitish mucous discharge from your vagina. This is also a sign that you are getting closer to periods. When you have had this discharge for one to two years your periods will start. When the mucous gets thicker THAT is a good sign.
    Remember, girls need to have grown to weigh at least 45kg and have a certain percentage of body fat before they start their periods. Underweight girls tend to get their period later.
