Hi cinbetha

Thanks for your post!

There is no need to 'freak out' just yet about anything!

You may have a period that comes every 24-32 days (or anything in between) which means every month your period will be at a different date. The average cycle is 28 days but there can be fluctuation of several days both before and after this average. This is quite frustrating but since you are young, you may find that you 'even out' in the next couple of years.

What you should do is keep a proper calendar of your dates for about 3 months, to see where you stand. This will let you know an approximation of your cycle (how many days in your cycle) and then you'll know a little more what to expect. Bear in mind that you may be one of the many women (young and older) out there who have irregular cycles. This does not necessarily mean something is wrong but may cause difficulties in both avoiding pregnancy and getting pregnant.

Can you do this for the next three months? All it takes is writing a note down on whatever date you get your period for the next three months so you only need to record 3 dates.

And as always, if you are afraid something else is going on, let your parents or doctor know.

What do you think?

Urine does not contain semen or sperm, and there is a 0% chance of pregnancy.

Urine is also sterile (bacteria-free), so risk of disease is insignificant. (Some infections may be present in urine, but would not be spread from a few drops of urine---that were most likely dried--to someone's skin).

Did she wipe the toilet off, squat over the toilet, or use toilet paper or other protective barrier over the urine-filled toilet seat? If not...that could be a little "gross" to sit in someone else's urine, but no risk of pregnancy or disease.
