Mixed feelings about periods

Dear PLS,
I sort of want my period and sort of don't. It makes me realy nervous to think about them. I know a lot about them because I reead a book about them. Is it normal to want my period? Or is it totally weird?
E, 11

Lots of girls want there period it is normal you want one like i want mine too. If you have discharge that means you might get it from 6 months to a year. You should keep pads in your house, desk, locker, ect.

Dear E,

I don't think it's at all weird. I feel the same way. I mean, I don't want it, but then I just want to get it over with. I read a book about it, too. I hope you feel better knowing that it's not weird.

its not weird its normal to be excited because it makes you feel older and its alos ok to be worried you are also scared so you are nervous about what might happen, its completely normal but i would advise that you talk to a close family member about it and get preprpared for when it happens by being ready and having pads and fresh underwear for when you first start. - hope I helped

It's not weird, I've wanted my period at times, but right now I'm thankful I don't have it, "just enjoy your time left without it!" (That's what my mom always says.)

Having started my period when I was 13, reading everyone's comments is making me wish I was on here when I was your age. Now I've had mine for 4 months, and I wanted mine too, cuz tons of my friends had it. Now I have it, and it isn't all that thrilling. A lot comes with it--you can get EXTREMELY moody, like to the point you cry if some tiny thing bugs you so, everyone, enjoy your time without it. It is nice to know I have it now, but sometimes I wish I could go back when I didn't. It's okay to want it, but don't worry it will come. I was scared mine wasn't ever gonna come, but it did. Don't worry and enjoy being little ;)

that's totally normal, cause on one hand you want to feel more grown up yet on the other hand you don't want to deal with all the 'baggage' that comes with your period like moodiness and cramps. just try not to worry about it, it will come eventually and there's nothing you can do to slow it down or speed it up.
hope i helped -

Don't worry! Its completely normal to want your period- before I got mine I wanted it too!
Try to get your mind on some other things too, but remember to stick a pad or 2 in your locker or backpack- and maybe it will not only come in handy for you but maybe a friend or someone will need one!

Enjoy your great life!

I know what you mean. I wanted my period to come so I could feel more grown up. Your period is really no big deal. It makes you feel older and more mature.

I feel the same way as you I want my period but then again, sometimes I don't. Its OK to want your period.You will have your first period 2/2 and a half years after the first signs of puberty.You will have a discharge(gummy white stuff in your pants)6 months before your first period.
Hope this helps,

I love periods! It isn't weird to want them at all. I think they are beautiful and I heart them. It isn't always fun but be proud that you are a woman.
