Dear Dish-It: 100 Pounds To Get My Period?

Dear Dish-it,

Is it true that you have to be at least 100 lb before you get your first period???

AZ

Dear AZ,

Surprisingly, it's true that most girls weigh around 100 pounds when their periods start. Since starting your cycle requires a certain amount of body fat, girls who are skinnier or very involved in sports may start a little later. While this isn't an exact science and 100 isn't some magic number, it is a pretty accurate generalization.

Not only that, you can also STOP menstruating after you've started if you’re underweight due to an eating disorder or consistently over-exercising. So, stay healthy and wait it out. If your period still hasn’t showed up by your sweet 16, see your doctor.

Can You Swim During Your Period?

  • Of course you can.
  • No way! That would be gross!
  • I don't know, I've never tried.
  • I think you can, but I wouldn't.

You should grow comfortable with yourself before you come out. If you're not certain if you are indeed bi, then you shouldn't slap that label on yourself yet. Take some time to really think about how you feel, but don't worry too much about it. Your sexuality isn't everything. You have plenty of time to discover yourself as person. Don't rush it.

Well, they should be the same person. In my personal opinion, your significant other should be your best friend. You should be able to hang out, talk with, and share your life with your boyfriend/girlfriend just like with your best friend. So basically, both.
