I got a brown spot in my panties, but then nothing more happened. Have my periods started or was this something else?

It’s very common for periods to start this way. Sometimes nothing more happens, and sometimes you’ll continue bleeding. A heavier flow is bright red in colour. But before your periods have stabilised, it’s very common for them to be irregular. It can take several years. But yes, absolutely. What you got was the start of your periods.

Did this help you?
