Could It Be My Period?

I am 14 years old and a late bloomer. I think I might be getting my period but I am really not sure because it is brown and sticky, (it might be discharge.) Well, I am totally confused and don't want to tell my mom because I know she will tell everyone I know and I am embarrassed cuz I am so late.

What's Normal - Period Facts

The appearance of a brown, sticky discharge is a good indication that you've begun your period. A girl's first period (also known as menarche,) is rarely the Niagara Falls gush of blood that you might be expecting. Instead, it is usually quite light and can often be brownish in color.

Quick Facts About Periods and Puberty

Reasons why you might not have your period yet: you're very physically active, you're under or overweight, or you are under a lot of stress.

Maybe your overrating her personality while underrating yourself. Girls extremely like confident men so start working on your self esteem first because it stimulates interest to get to know you more especially on the romantic context and don`t forget to just be yourself so that you will know if she accept you to who you are and don`t let the "ideal boy" standard of the society bring you down. Remember that real happiness can be achieve when you are true to yourself so don`t mind what other people think of you and stop comparing yourself to the boys around her. Embrace your imperfections and wash away your insecurities and maybe she`ll like you back ;)

Considering your age, it is normal that your parents might not accept it in case he likes you and the feeling is mutual and you must understand them. This is time when you need to focus in your studies and prepare for your future career and not for your future husband. You are still very young and trust me, you are still emotionally unprepared for this one heck of a roller coaster ride of emotions. Know the difference between loving that person and loving the feeling that you are in love. ;)

I am already back in school, I no longer have crutches thankfully. Also, i'd like to point out that they don't have social media, or at least, i'm not aware of it and I am out of school for two weeks for Christmas. Crushes are annoying lol. I have never been in a relationship either which makes things so much worst.
