My 1st Period
Your first period is a very exciting event. It’s a clear signal that your body is maturing into an adult woman. It can also make some girls feel a bit anxious, as however much you’ve been told about what will happen, the experience is still new to you. You’ll very quickly get used to dealing with it, and if you need advice ask any girl or woman older than you, as they’ll have been there, done that, got the t-shirt.
If you have specific anxieties, especially about whether all is well, then your doctor will be happy to talk to you and if necessary check if there’s a problem. You can also check general information on this website, which we hope you find helpful.
