Is it normal for a 11 year old girl. to have started her first period a few months ago in august it lasted a few days i thought was a normal first period wit no abdominail pain and not had another since? shes a lil on the big/heavy side for her age! we have had the talk about periods and sex and she knows what not to do and to do we talk she tells me everything so i know shes not at that age where i have to worry about her having sex yet!! i was woundering should i worry if she doesnt get a period again soon? should i take her to see her docter ? we have been so busy last few months since then i have not thought much about it till now, we have had our new baby boy was born in oct sowe have been real busy wit 3 kids now. so should i just wait and see if she starts her period again she seems perfectly fine not complaining of pain and a lil cramps but my 11 year old not started period yet? i know for some girls this is normal!

My little girl is 10 she had her first period on 1-2-13,,we are 2-5-13 n nothing yet so i am thinking is this normal for it to be late or maybe her body has to adjust to it.

@Edeee I'm 13 years old too and I got my first period 7 months ago and I got my second one 2 months ago, and haven't had my 3rd one yet. At school, we learned that it's supposed to be really irregular for the first few years so I'm pretty sure that's normal

Oh my! You sound like me! My youngest had her first period 2 months before her 11th birthday, And. she didn't have one again until 5 months later....and then they were here for good. On the other hand, my oldest at the time was 15 and hadn't seen anything of hers! Hers came the day after her 16th birthday. It is perfectlly normal. Hang in there. Deb

When a girl accidently mouthes off she doesnt mean it it only means she is moody and it can mean she is going to start or she is on her period it doesnt mean she is beinng disrespectful . i figured this out by thinking about when i was a girl then it hit me i did the same thing when i was a girl . "mom why did i smart off i didnt mean to really i didnt " my daughter says . "i know ." i said , "your just growing up thats all because i did the same thing . " "really ?" she asked "yes ." i said .

my daughter had her period three days after her birthday then we rushed to the store and got her some pads she is agreat daughter to have and many moms think for no reason that their daughters were rude and disrespectful but their not ;...
their just growing up. you can punish them if they do something wrong like having sex at their age and geting something thats not theirs or not doing their chores when the chores needs to be donebut dont give them daily chores because it will make your relationship as mother and daughter "will" fall apart . dont get mad at them when they didnt mean to say anything the wrong way or when the words come out the wrong way it may seem rude but their only growing up so dont let their mistakes get to you because hey dont mean to say things the wrong way even when it may seem rude and disrespectful be careful with your punishments even when they say something the wrong way .


thanks for reading !

p.s.
dont push your daughter to do her chores daily . and make sure your daughter is safe and dont call her names when they dont know what you mean by thing or that or when you point at something so please dont get angry with your daugher just becuase she accidently says the wrong thing . Thank you

Of course it is, when my daughter first had her period she was 10 years old and stopped for five months, that's just the hormones

OMG Of course tell your mom Lane! You don't have to wonder, guess or anything. Your mom been through it many years now she knows all the facts about your menstrual cycle don't go through it alone. And yes it's normal my daughter just started hers this past Sunday January 12 and she's 12. You can start as early as 8 or 9 years old

My daughter had her period when she was 10, and didn't have it for about 6 more months. My daughter is about normal weight, so I think it's normal no matter what the weight is. But now they are here for good :) Hope I helped!

She could of been running with your hormones. I know it sounds funny but I have my tube tied now and my sister was pregnant and my cycle was completely messed up to the point I took a home test. Then a month after she had her daughter My brothers wife got pregnant and my cycle was completely messed up then too so for 2 years I would go 3 to 4 months without a cycle. Now its completely normal every 29 day which is my normal!

My daughter had the same problem. Her pediatrician said it is normal for girls to have erratic periods for the first 2 years after getting their periods. My daughter had it regularly for about 5 months and then she didn't get one for a year! Weight fluctuations can cause it to stop too. I was definitely concerned so I'm glad I took her to her doctor.

Don't worry about her, its normal at her age her body is just changing over going into the teenage stage. As long as she feel fine then its ok.

Yes it is normal, my now 12 year old daughter started when she was 8 on and of until early this year when they came on regular, but very heavy. All girls are different, we have been to the specialists over the last 4 years and they assure me that it is all normal

[deleted account]

Yes, very normal. I'll speak from my own experience. I was nearly 16 before I even started my period, I was very much under a 'healthy' weight, in reality I was very healthy, just really skinny and couldn't keep weight on. As a result, I had my period sometimes, maybe 4 times a year, until I ended up 3 months pregnant at 17. Since I was on BC and never had a period anyway, I didn't think much of it, until I started to gain weight. My mom started taking me to the doctor at 13 because she thought that something was wrong with me, but I was fine, just needed to gain some weight. :)

My daughter had her first period at 13 and she had a normal period and was regular from day one. So everyone is different. If you are worried take her to an OB not her pediatrition.

I didn't have my first until 15 1/2. It was only a couple drops really. Then nothing for a few months. Then a couple drops. It took over a year for me to have a "regular" type period. It still wasn't regular time wise for another 2 years.

It is pretty normal for periods to be all over the place for the first year or two. The hormones are all over the place, and are going to take time to settle down a bit. Certainly, if you are really concerned, book her in to the doctor for a general check up, and explain your concerns, but I think you'll find that it isn't anything to be overly concerned about.

My now 12-year-old daughter has the same problem. She got her period when she was 10 and had regular periods for about 6 months, and then she lost some weight with sports and just being active, and all of a sudden her periods stopped. She gets the cramps now and then but no bleeding. Her pediatrician told me that it is normal for girls who just started their periods to be irregular up to 2 or 3 years.

Honestly I have no clue, Perhaps taking her to a Gyno and having her start getting a pap every year and things to make sure things are ok. I didn't get mine till I was 13 and mine was like clock work. (even to the time of day late afternoon lol until i had my third son) So from experience I don't know. But I think her seeing a Dr is good just to get in the habit for one also to rule out anything that could be wrong. (please know I am not trying to say she could be pregnant that is the fathest thing from my mind) Come to think about it I know that some women have irregular periods so I would think it would be possible for teens to have them too.

Like I said probably good idea to just have things checked out just to make sure that yea everything inthere is working as it should and she is healthy inside. its probably the way her body is right now, since she is a little on the younger side i think. Good luck I hope all goes smoothly. :)
