Frequently asked questions about periods

I couldn´t help but wonder...

What is a period or menstruation?

Menstruation is the menstrual bleeding that occurs due to hormonal changes in the body, marking the beginning of a woman's menstrual cycle. This process occurs every month. That is why most girls and women have their period once a month. There is no need to be ashamed of it, as it is a natural process, and completely normal.

Is it normal to have a period?

Yes. Having your period is normal.

Menstruation is a natural fact of life and occurs every month for 1.8 billion girls and women of reproductive age around the world.

Why do we have periods?

Periods are caused by hormonal changes in the body. Hormones are chemical messengers. Organs in your body, the ovaries, release the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone.

These hormones cause the lining of the uterus (also called a womb) to build up. The built-up lining is ready for a fertilised egg to attach and begin to develop. When this happens you are pregnant. If there is no fertilised egg, the lining breaks down and bleeds.

It usually takes about a month for the lining to form and then break down. This is why most girls and women get their periods once a month.

How many days does a normal period last?

The length of the menstrual cycle varies from woman to woman, but the average is every 28 days.

Longer or shorter regular cycles, from 23 to 35 days, are normal.

The menstrual cycle is the time from the first day of your period to the day before your next period. Every girl has her own menstrual cycle.

Is it normal if my period isn´t regular?

During the first few years of menstruation, it may not be regular. This is normal, at first. About 2-3 years after the first menstruation, your period should come once a month and last anywhere between 2-10 days.

What is a normal age for a girl´s first period?

For most girls, the first menstruation, or period, begins about 2 years after their breasts begin to develop. For most girls, this is around age 12 years. But it can happen as early as age 8 or as late as age 15.

Each girl's body has its own timetable.

Is a period the same as menstruation?

Yes, menstruation and period are the same.

What is the difference between a period or menstruation and a menstrual cycle?

The menstrual cycle lasts from the first day of your period (= menstruation) until the first day of your next period. The average menstrual cycle lasts between 25 and 30 days, but it can also be as short as 21 days or longer than 35 days.

As every body is different, this varies from person to person.

Should I tell my mother/parents when I have my (first) period?

As having a period completely normal and it is an important thing to talk about. So, don't be afraid to tell your mother or someone else you trust! Even telling someone before you get your period can help prepare you.

She, or any adult you trust, can also make sure you have everything you need, like information, answers and menstrual products.

What should I do when I get my period?

Don't worry, you can ask your mother or caregiver for menstrual products.

There is no need to be ashamed, all women menstruate.

What are menstrual products?

Pads (sanitary towels), tampons, menstrual underwear (i.e. period panties, absorbent knickers) and menstrual cups are the products that help you live a normal life during your period by preventing blood from getting on your clothes or sheets.

How often should I change my pad, tampon, panty, cup or menstrual disc?

  • Pads and sanitary towel: every 4 hours.
  • Tampons: every 3 hours.
  • Menstrual panty: every 8 hours.
  • Menstrual cups and menstrual discs: every 12 hours.

But, the above depends on your flow and you may need to change more often.

Can I use a pad, a cup or wear menstrual underwear when I don't have my period (yet)?

Of course you can. If you think you're going to get your period soon, you can bring a sanitary towel, wear a pair of menstrual underwear or a menstrual cup.

Can I shower or take a bath when I have my period?

Yes, some women think that during menstruation they cannot shower or swim in the pool, but this is not correct.

While on your period, it is important to maintain correct menstrual hygiene habits, so showering is a good idea. Hygiene is key. So, take a shower or a bath!

Can I exercise or do sports when I´m on my period?

Absolutely. You can do anything you want and sports or exercise is even recommended when you are menstruating.

I am on my period: can I swim in the sea or in a pool?

Of course you can! With the right menstrual products you can do anything you want. With a menstrual cup you can bathe without any problems.

Can others know, smell or see if I'm on my period?

Usually, NO. As long as you have good hygiene, wash regularly and change your menstrual products, no one can smell, see or know that you are on your period.

Are there any thing I cannot do on my period?

No! If you are on your period, you can do anything you want!

Facing the future?

Menstruation is a natural and healthy part of a girl's life. Nobody should stop you from exercising, having fun and enjoying life. If you have questions about menstruation, ask your doctor, parents, health teacher, school nurse or older sister.

Do boys have periods?

The answer is no. Boys do not bleed and do not have ovulation.
