when you got your first menstrual period?
Had just turned nine.
not exactly sure. 12 maybe? 11 or 12 I think, I know it was before highschool but don't remember exactly what grade or age I was. I remember it wasn't really a big deal. I got it one day at school, a friend gave me a pad, I went home and asked my mom for some money and went and bought myself a pack of pads. My mom obviously saw the used packaging in the garbage and said "Did you start your period?" I told her I did and she was like "Why didnt' you tell me?" and I just said that I didn't think it was that big of a deal lol I knew what I had to do to take care of the situation so I didn't think telling her was really nessecary as she would obviously know or figure it out lol
I was 9, barely..... My daughter was 10, the friends we're staying with their 12 year old just started this month... Most of my girlfriends when I was you g were around 10/11 some earlier, some later
I voted 13, but I can never remember if I was actually 13 or 12. Most of my friends started before me, but only by a few months.
16. My mom said she started around then as well. I know some girls get embarrassed about being a "late bloomer", but I loved not having to deal with all of that stuff until later. LOL
I really don't remember. Probably under 12?
Edit: It's hard to remember since I have irregular periods. I could have started at 11 and not have the next one until 12 or 13.
OMG I can't believe some of you started when you were 9! I couldn't imagine dealing with that at that age.
I started on my 16th birthday, Happy Birthday to me!
I haven't gotten mine yet. I probably won't get mine until I'm 16, as that is when my mom got hers. Honestly I feel lucky that I don't have to go through it yet. So many complain about it and I'm just like, "Yep, haven't had to go through that yet."
I know! I think that was the age my mom first told me about it!
Right?? I can't remember when my mom talked to me about it.. I think I was older than 9 though. I have a 9yr. old niece (turns 10 in March).. I couldn't imagine her already having a period!
10. My sister was 8.
15 with the help of progesterone pills lol.
I voted 16+ since there was no option for "never."
12 I think? I wanna say I was in 6th or 7th grade.
I voted 13, but I was closer to 14.
Most of the girls in my family (mother's side) are over 12 at the VERY minimum! I to am thankful that I didn't have to deal with it any sooner........honestly, I would have been happy to wait until I was 20 or more
I had a close friend who started at age 10. Her mother done (IMO) a really good job making it seem fun! My friend was actually EXCITED that she was "becoming a woman" LOL Weirdo, LOL
I was in grade 7 so I think I was 12. Could have been 11 though not sure.
Didn't notice it was a poll, one of the few drawbacks of tapatalk
14 I think? It was fall of my freshman year of high school.
