Thank you, thank you - 57 thank yous for the 57 questions we received on Valentine's Day. As promised, all will be answered.

For today, we'll offer just one - the first question submitted at 1:07 a.m. EST on Valentine's Day.

Dear PLS,
When I started my period I had a heavy flow. And now its my second time but I'm not sure if I actually got it cause I do have a flow but its very very light almost like nothing there. What does that mean? Is it my period or not?
Heather, 13

Heather made it easy for us since this is a very common question and we've answered it before. Check it out, Heather!

Period, Where R U?

The short answer is that irregular periods are common following a first period.

Any other advice for Heather? More questions - 56 to be exact - are on the way.

Think pink!

Ugh periods are so annoying. Dont worry though it gets easier and better. Soon it will be a second nature.
