I just got mine today :)
so I had been getting white discharge for like almost a year, yesterday I had brown discharge and I thought it was like in infection or something. This morning I woke up and it was brown again and I was feeling a bit curious. But then later in the day I got my period!
I didnt have any cramps or headaches, sore boobs or back or anything which I guess is kind of a good thing. Although I did notice I was getting some pimples, but now they are gone because I have my period now! Everyones signs are different and sometimes you don't even know! Nearly everyone will get brown discharge though because that is some of the blood mixing with the discharge. When you get the brown discharge you should make sure that you have all the things you will need.
If you don't want to talk to your mum about all the things you need to know just look it up on the internet it has heaps of info.

What age are you?
Don't panic if you havent took your period yet
you go through different stages of puberty here they are they may happen at different times

1. You will start to develop breasts ( boobs )  or your breasts will get bigger
2. You will get underarm hair
3. You will start to get a lot of pubes what I mean is that you will start to grow hair in your pubic area

my daughter set me this up and I am a nurse and I love helping young girls like you
I will add you as a friend

I was just wondering do you have much hair down in the pubic are ( vagina )
when I add you if you let me know I can let you no roughly when you should take your period and I can talk you through what you should do when you take it etc.
Don't be embarrassed to talk to me about this because I have talked to loads of girls about that sorta thing and you can trust me 100%

I personally wouldn't no I haven't started but from what I read on the internet
you get
-pubic hair(you start to get hair on your vagina and your armpits)
-discharge(white gooey liquid[related 2 mucus] that comes out of your vagina)
-breasts grow(which means that your boobs are getting bigger)
-acne(which is zits and pimples on your face,chest and back)
-headaches

I'm 12 and I think my period is coming soon. I have acne, stomach cramps,I'm tired all the time, discharge, boobs,mood swings, lower-back pain, sometimes I feel like I'm going to puke, I randomly feel like crying and I'm hungry ALL THE TIME but sometimes my cramps are so bad that I can't eat. My mom got her period when she was 12 and my big sister got hers when she was 8 or 9, I'm going to be 13 in june so I'm really starting to get scared. I don't really feel comfortable talk to my mom or sister about it though, every time I'm about to talk to them I don't cause I think I'm going to cry. I don't have blood strikes in my underwear yet but my friends is starting to go a funny yellowish brown colour. Some of my friends have thiers and I'm really starting to feel left out. I always bring pads, tampons, advil and chocolate just in case it happens at school. Iv had friends for 3 year and I'm tired of waiting for my period. WHAT SHOULD I DO?please help me!

Well, no one knows for sure when that "time of the month" will finally arrive. But it usually happens when you go through puberty. You'll notice you're breasts are developing, and you'll start to get hair under you're arms, and around you're genitals (pubic hair is what it's known as). Another sign is vaginal discharge fluid(sort of like mucus) that a girl might see or feel in her underwear. The discharge usually starts 6 months before you're period. Don't worry if all you're friends get it first and you get it later, and don't worry if you think you're one of the first you know to get you're period. Everyone has their's at their own pace. Every girl is different, and everyone starts developing when their ready. Good luck! =)

My breasts hurt. I feel like I am fat, or bloated if that is the right word. I am not hungry-not like me at all! I feel like I am sick, but am not. I haven't gotten my period yet, but this is what my body feels like. :)

Chocolate and sugar cravings. Feeling bloated or like you need to pee. Discharge tends to become more transparent. Emotional levels, stress levels and hormones go up these change your mood so you can feel sad angry and vulnerable all at the same time. Image awareness increases. Pimples tend to become more noticeable. Stomach cramps, back pain and headaches are also a factor.

Really people its not that big of a deal when you get your period itll come soon enough. If youre worried about not fitting in you shouldnt be. No one can know when you start your period unless you tell them. And if there truly your friends they wont care when you period. I went through always wishing I had it and trying to make it come sooner when I saw some thing that changed my point of view. It was an article talking about how kids these days just want to be grown up. It was an old lady who wrote it she said when she was kid kids were still play dress-up and making mud pies when they were 12 she said she wished those days had lasted longer because before she knew it she was all grown up and too busy for any of that. You know you only are young once in life time and you should embrace it. I'm 13 and don't have my period. But now I'm glad and take every minute I have of being kid. My advice - be a kid while you still can and don't wish to be grown up because you know it you will be and youll have a job, a mortage, other bills to pay, a marrige, a house to clean, kids to take care of, no time to be a kid. So I hope this helps if not I hope you think about it some more and maybe decide to enjoy being a kid while you can.

Well I'm with you guys because my mom got hers when she was 11 and I'll be 11 in a couple of weeks and I've been reeeeeaaaaallllyyyyy hungry, I've been soooooo tired, I've been having cramps and headaches and moods swings. I also have pubic hair and reaaaalllllllyyyyy sore boobs and I have under arm hair. I'm older than most of my friends so they think that I'll probably get it anytime soon just like I do. Oh and I also have the discharge so I have to wear pantyliners. I've had most of these symptoms for about 8 months but I haven't gotten it yet. My mom says I'm probably reeeaaaallllyyy close so I'm kinda excited but anyway if you want it quicker you can drink whole milks and fatty meats along with green tea. You can also rub toothpaste on your boobs, take a shower, and after you're done rub it with oil. It helped my friend who's older than me so hope this helps!

Soreness in your thighs and lower abdomen. Usually it feels like you have to take a bowel movement but a little lower. Tender breasts, and fatigue are also signs. You will also notice you gained 2-3lbs out of the blue (it's best to weigh yourself in the morning right when you wake up and do your morning urination to see what your REAL weight is).

Sweet and salty cravings are NOT common - since cravings are usually signs that your body is lacking something. Sweet means lower blood sugar, salty means you're a little dehydrated and need water (maybe a cracker or two).

Emotional fluctuation is also NOT a common sign - since many people can be angry or upset for personal reasons, and it is common for some women to not experience any PMS or emotional changes.

Fatigue is a really key sign since your body is starting to become lower in iron, and this will make you very tired.

There are no reliable signs of periods in every women. Some women can have premenstrual syndrome. These cane signs of periods. These signs are mood changes, nausea, vomiting, lethargy, Headaches, cramps, Breast tenderness etc. These signs can also be due to pregnancy, so, there are no definite signs of periods. Many ladies know their body very well and can feel that their periods are about to come.
