Dear Dish-It: About My Body

Dear Dish-It,


I woke up one day with some pains in the lower part of my body and when I checked my panties, there was a sticky brown discharge. Can you tell me what it is?


KW65


Dear KW65,


If you haven’t got your period yet, this could be your first period. Because you said it was brown I’m inclined to think the “discharge” you saw was actually old blood – something you might see again at the beginning and/or end of your next period.


Since this is just my best guess, the best thing for you to do is talk to your mom about and possibly go see your family doctor so you can find out for sure what the brown discharge was.


If you've got a burning question, need some love advice or find yourself thinking about things like sex, depression, self-esteem, boyfriends, girlfriends, best friends, bullying or peer pressure, don't hesitate to Dish-It here. Send your questions to deardish@kidzworld.com. And if you hang out in the chat rooms with other Kidzworld members who know you by your username, just send in your secret question using a different nickname if you want to stay anonymous – we promise that no one will ever know it's you. Remember: Dish-It gets a load of letters every day so it may take a while to reply to yours. Keep checking back for her reply, or watch for answered Dish-It questions that are similar to your own.

    my dad mostly because he doesn't care what I identify as and he's the 'least' judgy person I know (I wrote least in quotes because he judges me for very few things)
