Period, Where R U?

If you read The Pink Locker Society, you know that I have not yet gotten my period. And that this fact is very much on my mind (though less so now that I know plenty of other girls my age are still waiting).

But today, we're going to tackle a different issue that affects TONS of girls based on the many questions we've recieved. The issue is: What if you got your period once, twice, or a few times, and then ... NOTHING. You're waiting, and, hello? Period, where did you go?

I went straight to my doctor friend with this one and she was happy to tell me that this is VERY NORMAL especially in the first year after a girl gets her first period. Here's what she suggests:

1. Write down on a calendar the first day of your period. That way you'll know for sure how long it's been between periods.

2. Remember that a normal cycle is between 21 and 45 days. Always count from the first day of your last period.

3. If you're concerned or have questions, talk to a parent and/or your doctor.

How about it girls? Anybody out there have this same issue? For more info, read this:

Think pink!

Girls please don't worry your pretty little heads about getting your period. It will come, don't rush it! It is really not all it's cracked up to be. Advice from a freshman: focus on just enjoying your life your only young for a little while, life flys by. - Live it up :-) -

There is this girl in one of the younger classes who has her perios, and while you're waiting, just hang out enjoy swimming while you can (cuz u cant swim while ur having ur period unless u use a tampon) just be thankful you dont have one extra thing to worry about, k?

I'm kind of excited. My discharge is getting worse, so that means my period is getting closer! I can't wait to be grown-up. I'm 14 and all the other girls in my class have started theirs. I feel left out, but I'm ready to not be!!!!
