Okay. 11 months ago I had my first period. It was yucky brown, lasted about a week but I can't recall much cramping. That week, I got my first hair 'down there' and I'm starting to get armpit hairs and just for the record, I've never shaved anywhere and me and my mum never talk about puberty, shaving, etc. Please help! Am I crazy? Is there supposed to be such a big gap between? Thanks for your time also.
The first year or so on your period can be rough. And yes. Gaps are normal. But I'm not sure about 11 months. I just got my menarche (first period) last month. I heard if it's more than 6 months in the gap, to get yourself checked out by a doc because that could mean infertility when you're older. So, go see a doctor because I'm not an as great of a source. But if you have other questions about periods, I'll happily answer because I've known all about it for 4 years.
