I started my period at nine. It was pure hell, I tell you. Being in fourth grade and getting your period? Yeah, not fun.
It makes me sick to think of all the older men that probably stared at me when I was 10 and 11 because I looked like an "older" girl. Yuckyuckyuck.
I had a bunch of accidents in sixth grade because I refused to wear a pad to school. A bunch of girls made fun of me.
I had acne when I was 12, but luckily I had it under control by the time I was 16.
I also had teachers call home complaining that I "smelled" bad. My parents couldn't get a hold on my bad puberty odor LMAO! Of course, they kept that information from me until I was older.
And I get to look forward to experiencing all of this again in about 10 years when my daughter hits puberty! Yayyyy!

Not bad. I started my period at 13 an except for the awkwardness of the fact I had started a new school and my mom never really had the discussion with me until after I started it was okay. I never really got boobs and had already been shaving my legs for 3 years already. No acne either and actually no skin problems till I had my son and now my face gets dry if I dont moisturize everyday.
