okay, so all my female friends first had their periods when they were like 15... but i was 13. theirs last like 3-4 days, but mine lasts 5 days at least. also, many of them use tampons, but i'm kind of scared to use them and it seems dirty. especially if you're not at home while changing your tampon >.< i'm curious what you think about tampons, did you ever use them? and if you did, how old were you? like, have you been using them since the first time or...?

Look a guy is the first to respond to this thread. There's no such thing as a girls/boys only thread. Really, when someone is advised not to do that or not to look there they end up doing it anyway. Just my two cents worth.

I haven't ever used tampons, can't be of help sorry.

I don't think this thread has to be girls only...most men have dealt with someone who has their monthly cycles (sisters, girlfriends, wives, etc). I believe that there are just as many guys out there with an opinion or knowledge of the subject as women.

Now...I got my period when I was 11. Actually I think 15 is a little on the late side...are your friends very skinny or very active (like in gymnastics)? The less fat you have during puberty, the later you will ovulate. Fat cells actually produce estrogen, which aids of course in menstruation.
Tampon usage is probably not common when you first start - they are intimidating. I don't think I used them until 15+. But they are more beneficial, as they are less to deal with in the long run. Pads are bulky and uncomfortable, and you have to change them often; you may also have to worry about overflow, or smell regarding pads. Once a tampon is in, you can safely keep them in for 6-8 hrs, so it may not be necessary to change them during the school day. Even if it is, they come in sizes now that fit in your pocket and are easily discardable without a bunch of people knowing what you are doing (if you get embarrassed easily that is).
For the cycle length, 3-7 days is normal. I would say that 5 days is average and no cause for alarm. If you start having heavier cycles for longer (like 14+ days) that could be a sign of a problem. Similiarly, if you begin having irregular cycles, like every couple of months or longer spans between, go get checked out.

I actually have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, so my body doesn't produce enough estrogen and that causes me not to ovulate. I may have a cycle twice a year, if I am lucky. My sister has Endometriosis, which is almost opposite...she can have her cycle for 14+ days at a time or longer.
Both can be somewhat corrected by birth control or hormone therapy.

I hope I helped a little. But if you have more questions, talk to someone you trust (mom, older sister, or even female teachers or nurses at school).

wow, 14+ days >.< i've heard of women having their period while they're pregnant, but not this =O and my friends aren't really al that skinny or anything =/ maybe it has something to do with ethnicity, because all women in my family started around the age of 12, but the girls around me all started around age 14-15. oh well, now i know it's nothing bad lol. thanks ^^ also i don't have a sister and schools here don't have nurses and i don't really like my teachers all that much lol. and i can't really talk about it with my mom because she hates tampons D= it seems very uncomfortable to me too actually... anyway, thanks again ^^

Forgive me for breaking the "No guy' rule but, I would like to try my best to help ya to the best of my abilities.

First of all to correct you, you do -not- get your period during pregnancy; instead you get what is called spotting

Secondly, I have over heard my mom talking about this with my aunt. I know for a fact that she prolly has used pads for quite sometime, and she prolly uses tampons on occasion.

- Some girls can start their menstrual cycle earlier than other girls.
- Some girls menstrual cycle will last a bit longer than other girls as well.
You are not odd because my menstrual cycle lasts for about a week as well.
But I'm slightly different from girls who have their regular menstrual cycle since I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome or known as PCOS, one of the most common female endocrine disorders affecting approximately 5%-10% of women of reproductive age (12–45 y.o.) and is thought to be one of the leading causes of female infertility. My period varies, I'm lucky if I even get my period every 3 months.
As for tampons, I'm not a fan of it. I've used it, but I don't like it. I prefer pads, but some girls likes tampon so it depends on the person. :)

I wish I was a man every time it comes.

Oh and here's a creepy episode from this show "Ghost Stories From Japan." Apparently, it's indirectly about a chick's period and it scared the hell out of me Now I get scared when the doorbell rings for all the wrong reasons.
