How do I keep track of when it will come?
Although it may take a couple of years for your period to settle into a predictable rhythm, you may still find it helpful to track your symptoms.
This will allow you to look for patterns and be somewhat prepared when your period does come.
You can also use this information to talk to your school nurse or other healthcare provider about severe cramps or other concerns.
To do this, mark the day your period started and the day it ended on your phone or paper calendar.
If you don’t want others to know what you’re tracking, you can use symbols or code words to help you identify when you’ve stopped and started.
As a general rule, your next period will probably start three to four weeks after the last one ended.
