Starting your periods

Starting your periods

Your periods start anywhere between the ages of 9 and 16. When this happens, it shows you’re in the final stages of puberty – becoming physically and sexually mature.

At first, your periods may be irregular.  They may not come every month (roughly 28 days), but more often (every 3 weeks) or less often (every 6 weeks). Don’t worry, this is normal. It can take up to three years for a woman's period to become regular.

Remember every woman's menstrual cycle is different. A way to figure out what is a regular menstrual cycle for you, is to jot down the first day and last day of your period on a calendar for a few months.

Starting late

What if your periods haven't started by the time you're 16? There could be many reasons why your periods are delayed. It could be because of diet, stress, exercise, or pregnancy. The best thing to do is contact your nearest health care professional to make sure everything is OK.

Sneha bête period ke irregular hone ke kai karan ho sakte hai jaise ki stress ya tension. Isme koi pareshaan hone ki baat nahi hai. Iske alava yadi unsafe sex hua hai toh ek home pregnancy test lena sahi hoga.

Arti bete if you are still having periods after unsafe sex, then there are virtually no chances of being pregnant. But just to be on the safe side, it would be wise to take a home pregnancy test.

Last month 23rd my girlfriend had her regular period but today date is 23rd only till now she dint have his period .. and we did sex once .. whether we have to wait for 2 days or else have to take medicine
If the sex was unsafe, then chances of pregnancy may be there. Take a home pregnancy test at the earliest. Then consult a registered doctor and see what can be done. Do not take just any medicine without the supervision of a registered doctor.

Hi mam I had a sex with my gf with protection (condom). But she delayed her period of 5days. Is there any chance to get pregnancy. But I used condom while I was in relationship with her.
Suriya bete, periods sometimes get late, too. Wait for a few days and if the situation persists, consult a doctor. If you would like to join in on a further discussion on this topic, join our discussion board, "Just Ask” https://lovematters.in/en/forum
Maam i had sex with a girl on 30th oct with precautions and i gave her i pill and the nxt day i had an unprotected sex with her and i gave her again an ipill before 12 hrs and the nxt day i gave her clear 72 ! Her periods day is on 5th nov !! Her periods has not been started till now ! Is she pregnant? And what should i do
Ashish bete, these pills are supposed to be used in EMERGENCY only, not for everyday use when you don't use protection. These pills are not supposed to be used in place of contraceptives because these affect the menstrual cycle of a woman. PLEASE do not use these carelessly. Since you have made her take so many pills, it's not surprising for periods to be irregular. Consult a specialist or a registered doctor soon. Please use a condom from today onwards, for her and for you.

Is she sure there are no chances of pregnancy. If there has been any unsafe sex before, it would be wise for her to take a home pregnancy test. Do this, soon.

बेटा जल्दी होने से कोई बात नहीं, don't worry. सबसे पहले तो अपनी पार्ट्नर की बॉडी को समझ लो- उसको टाइम दो. और यदि शरीर में उत्तेजना अधिक होगी, सेक्स की भावना ज़्यादा होगी तो शीघ्र पतन होने की संभावना भी अधिक ही होगी.ऐसी स्थिती में, पार्ट्नर पर फोकस बढ़ाना, फोरप्ले , यानी की प्रवेश करने से पहले बहुत से अलग अलग क्रियाएं करना , जिनसे दोनो को आनंद मिले, अपने पार्ट्नर की उत्तेजना बढ़ाना, यह सब activites सबसे ज़रूरी हैं. इसके इलावा, पार्ट्नर के साथ सेक्स करने से पहले, एक बार हस्त्मेथुन कर सकते हैं, उतने समय पहले जीतने में लिंग में तनाव आ जाए. कॉंडम का इस्तेमाल भी जल्दी discharge कम करने मददगार साबित हो सकता है. https://lovematters.in/hi/news/premature-ejaculation-top-five-facts यदि इस मुद्दे पर आप और गहरी चर्चा में जुड़ना चाहते हैं, तोह हमारे डिस्कशन बोर्ड, " जस्ट पूछो" में ज़रूर शामिल हों. https://lovematters.in/en/forum
Ufff! Relax bete Hastmaithun ek safe /surakshit tareeka hai apni santushti karne ka. Isse koi nuksaan ya beemari nahin hoti. Yadi chahein toh bahut see activities hain, jaise ki khel – games, gym ya koi hobbies…ok? http://lovematters.in/hi/resource/men-masturbating
