Dear Gogo, I am 13 and haven’t yet got my first period. When will it come?

Mukamana, don’t worry; you don’t have to do anything to have your first periods. It comes when time comes, and you are still very young. It’s not too late for your first periods. Did you know the average age range for the first period is between 12 and 18? This means there are some who can have their first periods before the age of 12. And that some can even reach beyond the age of 18 without their first periods? This is normal either way, don’t worry.
