  • Help! Very young and scared :(

    Please help!

    Very recently, my vaginal discharge which is usually whitish and yellow when dried, has turned brown. It's not smelly; it seems basically the same as the whitish discharge, only a brown color. I thought I saw some blood-ish (very weak, kind of rusty almost, but reddish) type stuff, but I don't know if its my period or something else. I've never had a period before, as I'm only 13.

  • Hi Lexie.

    It sounds like you're at the beginning of starting your period. Most girls start around your age. My daughter will be 13 this December and she started hers a few months ago. At first, your periods might be irregular... sometimes light...sometimes heavy...you may skip a month here or there. I know it can be scary when you don't know what to expect, but I hope that you have an older relative or maybe a school nurse to talk to about what's happening. And don't feel embarrassed because it's something that we all go through.

    • Congrats! I think you're starting your period too. You seem pretty educated based on your vocabulary use.
      I remember when I first got mine ... I had black spotting O.o It looked like squished spiders in my "panties" ... in fact, I think that's what I told my mom >.>
      Let your mom (or father or guardian) know so that you can go buy some sanitary napkins. Don't worry about using tampons yet unless you're a swimmer.

          If there's no room for anything else in the closet, then maybe too many. Otherwise, maybe try the Marie Kondo thing of clearing them out. How many of...

          I don't think it is a form of abuse but I don't think it is entirely healthy, either. I was taught abstinence until marriage also but it wasn't all religion...

          Okay, let's just break this down. Sex is not to be confused with love. Sex is a mechanical act that can be performed in a variety of ways. This will just...
