Signs Your First Period is Coming Tomorrow

Changes in hormones in the women’s body cause periods. In the female’s body, the ovary releases two hormones progesterone and estrogen which build up the lining of the uterus and are meant to attach to the fertilized egg and start the development process. But if there is no fertilized egg, then these linings start to break down and bleed from the vagina. After that, the whole process repeats. Usually, it takes one month for these hormones to create linings of the uterus and break. That is why most of the girls get their periods once a month.

There is no prevention of periods as it is a natural process. However, women use tampons, pantiliners, and pads to absorb the menstrual fluid and to stay dry.

In this guide, we will try to provide you with some suitable answers to the most common questions of very young girls that are about to have their first period. So that you can get ready to embrace your first period.


What happens before your first period?

Before your first period, some physical and chemical changes happen in your body. These changes are common in every girl so you do not need to worry about them. These changes are the sign that you are about to get your first period. 


  • Development in Breast Buds

The breast buds of a girl develop before the period’s kick-off. Usually, it takes 1 to 2 years for the periods to come after the development of breast buds. However, when the periods start your breasts will start to develop and will grow fully in 3 to 6 years. So the development of buds is the first sign that can help you in getting to know that your periods are coming. 


  • Pubic Hairs

Kids below 8 years of age do not contain pubic hairs. In some kids, pubic hair starts to grow early while in some kids it takes time. However, in girls development of pubic hair is a sign of their first period. So whenever you see that your pubic hair has started to grow, you should know that your first period is on its way.


  • Vaginal Discharge

Vaginal discharge is the third sign that tells you about the arrival of your first period. A white or yellowish kind of fluid starts to flow out of your vagina which tells you that your first period is going to start in the coming months. In this case, you should start to use pads and other pantiliners to prevent your body and clothes from stains. 


How can you tell if your period is coming soon?

No one knows for sure when you are getting your period. But there are signs that tell you that your period is coming. A good sign that tells you that your period is going to start soon is the discharge of white and yellowish fluid from your vagina. This white or yellowish fluid tells you that your period is only weeks away. So whenever the fluid starts to discharge from your urethra you should get ready for the periods and start to use tampons, pads, or pantiliners to absorb the vaginal discharge.

If you are a young girl who is about to have her first period but does not know when it will come. Then you can also see your pubic hair. If your pubic hair starts to grow then you are going to get your first period soon. And if the pubic hair has not grown then you will get your first period when they will grow.


How soon after pubic hair does period start?

The development of pubic hair is a big sign that you have grown up and are ready to face the periods. Usually, pubic hair starts to grow right after the development of breast buds. After the pubic hairs are grown there is a time of almost 1 to 2 years before you start your first period. Some girls do get conscious after seeing their pubic hair but there is nothing to worry about as it is a natural process and it happens to everybody. You should not get worried and instead you should talk to your mother about this so that she can guide you completely. You can also ask her when she got her first period because you will also get yours almost at the same age. In this way, you will get to know when your first period is coming and how you can handle it. 


How do I know if my daughter is getting her period?

But how can you know that your daughter is getting her period? Well, there are some signs that can tell you that your daughter is having periods. These signs are cramps (pain in the lower belly or back), bloating (puffy feelings in the belly), breakouts (pimples on the skin), and tired feelings.

As a mother, you should know if your daughter is suffering from periods so that you can guide her and help her get through them.


When do girls start their period?
