In most women, various physical changes are brought about by natural fluctuations in hormone levels during the [[menstrual cycle]], and by muscle contractions (menstrual cramping) involving the uterus that can precede or accompany menstruation. Women may notice water retention, changes in sex drive, fatigue, breast tenderness, or nausea. [[Breast]] swelling and discomfort may be caused by binge eating during menstruation.<ref>{{Cite journal |title=Binge eating during menstruation |journal=J Clin Psychiatry |volume=44 |issue=11 |page=431 |year=1983 |month=November |pmid=6580290}}</ref> Usually, such sensations are mild, and some women notice very few physical changes associated with menstruation.

I want to write this artical to help young womens be perpared for the cycle, Auntie Flow or commonly known as your period. Periods really hurt and are not very nice. You tend to start them at around age 8 - 16, it depends on you. The average age is 11 or 12. Pads or tampons are the most common use of sanitry product when on your period. You tend to have to change evry 2 hours when heavy, and 3 - 4 hours when light. Periods can last 2 - 1 week long, again, it depends on you. A sign of about to start your period is the development of brests, underarm and pubic hair, and hips widening. The most common sign of a period is coming is a white discharge that you get about 6 months before your first period. This can be a milky colour, clear and it is not smelly. Smelly discharge can be more of an infection or thrush. When you are on your period you can get back pain, stomach cramps, tiredness and more. At the end of a period you sometimes get a brown colour on you pad, this means your period is coming to a stop, it is the lining of the uterus changing colour, so the last of the lining of the uterus being shed. The gap imbertween a period is usually 28 days but varies when new to it. Sometimes also you get whats called spotting. Spotting does not usually get fown to the knickers, it usually comes out when wiping on the toilet. It is speckling usually, brown, black or red. Now DON'T painic, loads od people say spotting means you are pregnant, but it is impossible to be pregnat without have sexual intercourse, or letting sperm enter your vagina. It just means your period may change flow next time or colour. It is all normal. I am also going to tell you abot masturbating. Lots of girls and boys discover masturbating around the age when a period starts. Masturbating is when the little bit in your vagina rubs against something and creates a very good feeling. You move your hips back and fourth, usually on a pillow or blanket and creates an orgasm. I reccomend NOT masturbating when on your period as it will get very messy and blood will go everywhere but every other possible time. Do Masturbating is privacy, a locked bathroom or bedroom. I reccomend telling your parents that you have discovered this and it gives you a very good feeling. They will not shout at you, more or likely they do it with each other or used to when they were 11 or 12. Also when masturbating rubbing the parts of the body, e.g nibbles or stomach will help you create an ogansm. Also you can use a shower haed a squirt water (Not to hot) right bu your vagina, on the point and it may create one. I cannot get on with this way, personally I use pillows or cuddly toys. I imagain the cuddley toy is my partner and huum and masturbate with it imagaining a penis going right into your vagina. It feels lovely. You can masturbate with underwear on, loose baggy clothing on but I find being completely naked helps as who has sexual intercourse weraing clothes? No one! I really hope this artical helps, I experienced all of this and I still am now as im a girl. Its hard but boy, later in life, you will be soooo happy of that day you started your period.
===Painful menstrual cramps===
 
Many women experience painful [[uterus|uterine]] cramps during menstruation. The muscles of the uterus, and abdominal muscles surrounding the uterus, contract spasmodically to push the menstrual fluid out of the uterus. The contractions are produced by the tissue lining the uterus, which is believed to release an excess of fatty acids called [[prostaglandins]] that stimulate the muscles, leading to contractions. This is called primary dysmenorrhea. Primary dysmenorrhea usually begins within a year or two of [[menarche]]. It may continue until [[menopause]], but many women find that symptoms of dysmenorrhea gradually subside after their mid-20s. If the pain occurs between menstrual periods, or lasts longer than the first few days of the period, it is called secondary dysmenorrhea.<ref>{{cite book|last=Karen J. Carlson, MD; Stephanie A. Eisenstat, MD; Terra Ziporyn, PhD|title=The New Harvard Guide to Women's Health|year=2004|publisher=Harvard University Press|isbn=0674013433|pages=379}}</ref>
 
 
Symptoms of dysmenorrhea may become debilitating in some women. It is unknown why this occurs in some women and not others. Severe symptoms may include pain spreading to hips, lower back and thighs, nausea and frequent diarrhea or constipation. Treatments target excess prostaglandin, using anti-prostaglandin medications or oral contraceptives. [[Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs]] (NSAIDS), such as over-the-counter [[ibuprofen]] and [[naproxen]], may ease symptoms.<ref>{{cite book|last=Karen J. Carlson, MD; Stephanie A.

I think my comment was completely informational. Young girls need to know about the changes to their body when they grow older. You are just deleting someting completely wrong. Imagine a little girl with no mother or anyone she could trust. How is she goin to find out abot it? You answer that!
