Is this normal for first period?
Posted on: 02/05/2011
Hi. I am 13 years old and 4 months ago I my first spotting. A few days ago, I had another spotting, both of these sights of blood were like 4 drops and only lasted for a day. I thought at first it was normal to get your period irregular for the first time but I?m not sure that my period is supposed to be like this. Is this normal?
Sounds normal for you. Keep track -- and it will likely get more regular. Keep track of things like headaches, backaches or real cranky days, too -- and you may see a pattern. If you are worried, see your doctor.
