My daughter 11 1/2 had cramping since she turned 11. Last night when she used the bathroom, she had a tiny pink on the paper. I had talked to her about getting her period before. She is well aware about it but just scared. I gave her 1 of my pads last night before bed and she only had about the size of a dime pink on it this morning. Is she getting her period? I dont really recall getting mine. Just that I was 12. Can anyone tell me how long this barely there period will last before it goes to a regular schedule? I guess she will have to wear a liner daily to school so there is no "accident".

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

maybe.... maybe she's having bowel troubles and caused a hemorrhoid? Blood can be from a few different things- perhaps a hemorrhoid or anal fissure- or it could be something from her vagina- it depends. It's hard to tell from a pad sometimes, or from tissue paper. I wouldn't think period unless it was more blood, but you never know, you can always call her doc.

I was 13 or 12? I don't remember the year but I remember it was more of a normal amount of period blood. Has she played around with tampons? I did that before I got my period, you know, to practice and stuff, but tissue down there is sensitive and easily torn- it could just be a little tear.

I started my period when I was 12, it started at school, the cramping and everything. It did the small amounts for a couple weeks, then stopped for 7-9 months (I would have to look at my papers on it) and then it was extremely irregular and long for 2 years, then I went on birth control (15 years old) to even it out, it worked and then I didn't need the birth control anymore, so I stopped taking it.(it took 2 years to get it evened out) A couple years later, got married had a baby and now my period has to get back into its schedule....some girls have a regularly scheduled period right from the start. Look at your history and her grandmothers any aunts to determine how long it will take.
