How old where you when you got your first period?
It seems like girls are getting their period younger and younger these days.
I was 16 when I got my first period.
How old where you?
I got it when I was 10. The tail end of 5th grade. I turned 11 that summer.
I was 16 too! And I know what your saying, my niece Emily got hers when she was 11! what the heck!
I was 11 i the 6th grade,nurse brought me home that day. I was excited because my mom said I can shave my legs when I get my period.
I was 11. One of my friends was 8 when she got hers! Then my other friend didn't get her's until she was 14. I think it's one of those things that is different for everyone and there is a large range of normal.
I was 14 or 15. In 8th grade
I was 15 or 16 when I got my 1st period. My cousins got theirs when they were 10 and 12!
I got my first at 12. I matured early too. When from 5th grade flat as anything and over the summer going to 6th grade have a chest. Wasn't fun.
For me it was 8th grade
I was in 6th grade 11 years old
I was 15 when I got it b/c I was SUPER skinny as a kid and had close to zero body fat. That's actually what my doctor said: "You have no body fat, you need to gain weight and then you will get your period." So I went on a gain weight diet of ice cream twice daily and got my period at the end of that year. But it didn't start coming regularly until I was 16. (Ah - how I miss those gain weight diet days...I wish that were still the case :-)
