I'm so glad you got your period. I'm sure that as soon as it came, your worries went completely away. Now don't get worried if it doesn't come again right on time, all right? It's perfectly normal to be irregular for the first couple-three years until you get into somewhat of a predictable "cycle."

And remember what you learned -- that when you see that clear, egg-white mucus, your period is probably about two weeks away.

Take care, and please come back whenever you have questions! Thanks for updating us!!

Hi Mikhaela,
It's cool that you posted your questions here and that you got some answers. I have a daughter that is 14 and when she started her period last year it wasn't regular either so you're not alone. Like Miscortes said..Welcome to Womanhood!!! And yes..you do have your period for that long can you believe it?!

Hi, Mikhaela. Thanks for your questions!

That clear "yuck" stuff is part of your cycle. It's called cervical mucus. Sometimes it will be cloudy-looking, other times it will look clear and somewhat stretchy, like egg whites. Is that what you're seeing?

There's nothing wrong. The cervical mucus changes based on when you ovulate. At the beginning of your monthly cycle, there is little or none. As you get closer to ovulation, it's cloudy and sort of sticky. When you're ovulating, it turns clear and stretchy. After you ovulate, it gets drier again, and sticky. That's all between periods, ok?

Tell me if that makes any sense to you, 'cause if it doesn't I'm glad to give you more details. It's very cool that you came here to ask these questions and I want to help you understand what's going on.

I agree with RLyons and Miscortes, it's not at all abnormal for your period to be very irregular during your first couple of years of having it. But the fact that you're having the clear, stretchy mucus makes me guess that you might start your period again in another couple of weeks.
