What Are Periods And Who Gets Them?
Periods, or menstruation, is a monthly cycle that girls experience from as early as 8 years old. When most people refer to menstruation, they are usually talking about the bleeding that takes place typically every 28 days. The menstruation cycle is a full process over the typical 28 day period and is an important part of fertility.

Tracking Your Period
If You Get Periods, It Is Not Only Helpful To Track Your Cycle To Know What Days Of The Month To Expect Your Period, But It Is Also Important To Monitor If You Are Sexually Active.
You can do this by keeping a note in your own personal calendar or diary, or there are apps you can download to keep track for you.
Most people will get their period every 28 days, but this can vary. Some people get irregular periods and they can’t predict when they will next have one. There are a number of factors which can contribute to this, including: stress, if you have been unwell, if you have changed contraception or for your first few periods. Everyone is different and it’s a good idea to know your body.
