Hello and welcome.
I am Dr. Norm, and I look forward to helping you today.
It's bleeding, but we wouldn't really call it a period, although it is in a way.
When young girls first start having periods, they often don't ovulate for some time. Your ovaries
are working and making hormones, which is what causes the bleeding. It's once you ovulate that the bleeding will be more like a real period.
That will come with time. For now the bleeding and orange discharge means that the estrogen
from your ovaries is building up the uterine lining, which after a while starts to bleed.
With time, you will develop regular periods. Sometimes that takes a year or more. In the meantime, it's nothing to be concerned about. If you develop prolonged bleeding (more than 8-9 days), then see your doctor. Some hormone pills will resolve the bleeding. Otherwise, nature will take care of it in time. Best wishes.
