Young girls will start to get their period around the age of 11. Their period should come about every 21-35 days and her period should last 2-7 days. Anything more than 7 days is too long, so contact their pediatrician.

Bleeding during your period changes each day. The first couple of days may be light spotting, then you will enter into your flow and finish up with more spotting. However, it’s not considered abnormal to bleed for 2 days or 7 days.

You should not have to change your menstrual product every 1-2 hours. If you do, or experience light headedness or dizziness, please contact your doctor.

Other signs to look out for: the feeling of being hot, tired, weak, sweaty or heart palpitations, contact your doctor or gynecologist immediately. For more information on your period, watch Madge the Vag or email Madge at
