    But now I'm 12 and a half years old in 7th grade, getting close to my first middle school date and STILL going through pubirty. Anyway I've been horny since the age of 5 or 6, and now I am VERY horny like WAY past normal limit. Just like my big brother's friend, Omar Garibaldi who is 15 years old like my bro. His name is Salvador Alvarez, Sal for short. My name is Xavier Alvarez, Xavi for short

    To Emma

    You are fine. I am 14 and I have had 6 periods so far without getting armpit hair. That stiky stuff in your underwear means you might have your period soon. As in a couple weeks or months. Make sre you are prepared and have pads with you everywhere you go, just in case also, i am never moody or get cramps. Those side affects sometimes happen but sometimes dont. No need to worry!! Hope i helped! -JJ

    To rose

    Hello there, do not freak out pierods arent as bad as you think! If u have been having cramps or goop in your panies, expect to have ur pierod very soon. Just in case u want to know when u r going to have a pierod, mark on a calender everytime u have 1 u will usually start to see a pattern.
