If you have a vulva and vagina, your body starts to release eggs.
Just before this happens, you may start to see some discharge in your underwear (it’s clear and looks a little bit like egg whites).
If it smells bad or changes colour, talk to an adult you trust. You will start to have periods, bleeding from your vagina, for about 4 or 5 days each month. You are not sick, this is a healthy part of growing up. Use pads, tampons or menstrual cups to catch the blood. It’s important to change them often. Be prepared by having supplies with you at school or work. It’s a good idea to shower or bathe every day to stay fresh.
