Funny you're mentioning this today. My daughter is 11 and a half and started her period - today.
*sigh* My Baby!

I was 11 too then, but 9 seems awfully early  :-\

I was 10 when I got mine.  I was in 5th grade at the time... and I ended up being really happy that I had a head start on the girls in my junior high school when it came to understanding how to handle having my period.  Kids... and particularly the boys... at my junior high (6th - 8th grade) were awful (I mean really cruel) about teasing girls when word would get out that they had gotten their periods for the first time.  I'm sure some of those girls are still to this day psychologically impacted by some of the teasing.  I am just so glad that I'm not pubescent anymore.  It was such a tough time... and mostly because kids that age can be so mean.

I agree with what Leslie said.  Neither a mammogram nor a pelvic exam should hurt too much.  I think that a little discomfort is to be expected... but if either procedure is truly painful, then the practitioner is doing something wrong.  Be sure to speak up for yourself if you feel pain in those procedures.  Don't take the doctor's behavior for granted... you definitely have the right to speak up if you're uncomfortable.

For me, I almost always get bad cramps (sort of like menstrual cramps) following a pelvic exam, so yes, I often take Tylenol or something. But, usually the exam itself doesn't hurt (cause sharp pains, etc.).

Well, I took a Tylenol this morning, then let the dr. at my campus health center do the women's exam.   And I survived it!!
This is a major accomplishment for me as you might have gathered from what I said earlier.
Also, I am pretty sure the assistant in my regular doc's office must have done something wrong last year when she tried and failed to complete the Pap, because now I recall bleeding for several days afterwards.   
No such problem this time.

Whew.   the doc even said I might get to be excused from any more Paps for 2 to 3 years.    8)

Room for a small one in this thread?  It gave me a giggle, like being back in girls' school & having a girlie chat at break time :)  I guess if the conversation turns to hot guys we all know which ones we're going to go for!

On the hair removal thing it is shaving & epilating for me, ever since I got suckered into buying a natty little travel epilator from a shopping channel.  I used to home wax but got fed up with waiting for enough to grow back & all the fiddling around.  I couldn't let anyone else wax me though  :o  For a start I'm far too miserly to pay for it  ;)

Always room Nic!! Its fun tio chat and be girly sometimes!

Now - please explain the epilator to me - Nobody I know uses such a thing but I think I may be tempted. How does it work? And are they expensive to buy? On what body parts can you use it? legs too?

OK, here's an intro to the epilator!  :)  I had tried one years ago & hated it so when I bought this one I truly thought I had been suckered in by the advertising & was prepared to send it back if I didn't like it. It is about half the price of the normal sized ones & came with a definite money-back guarantee so I don't think I would have tried epilating other than happening to spot this.  Being a small travel-sized one it is not as scary as the full-size ones.  However, I think the bigger ones have improved a lot recently & I may invest in one later. An epilaltor basically has the rotating head with rows of little pincers, but they are not sharp pincers, and they do not pinch the skin despite the fear they will!  You can run it over the back of the hand or even your face & you won't feel a thing. 

The noise can be scary, as it is motorised so it has a loud machinery type noise which is not nice.  Again, this is minimised on my small one.  The way to use it is to run it across the skin a few times and the hairs disappear!  You can feel it but soon get used it and I find that I get more involved with using it, moving on to the next area & seeing the smooth skin left behind that any discomfort is not noticed.  I'd say it is a shade less uncomfortable than waxing. It is continuous so easier to get used to the sensation. 

The main advantages are that it's all in one handheld device (mine has batteries so is cordless) so no faffing and grow back is slow, but I guess it may vary from person to person.  It can be used on really short hairs and I find I don't get any redness afterwards.  With waxing sometimes the odd hair is missed which used to drive me mad but not a problem with my little device! I think if you are prone to ingrowing hairs from waxing you would probably get them with epilating too though.  I use it all over (although I don't do a lot on the bkini area) and it is great, especially for underarms.  It can even be used on the face too for women that may have facial hair from hormone issues.

Well, I didn't think I'd have so much to say on that subject!! I don't think I know anyone else that uses one but I guess there might be quite a few as there are loads available. 

Btw, I did have a few sessions of laser hair removal a few years ago as I thought it would be a good investment.  It was soooo painful so I soon gave it up.  Just remembering what it was like makes me shudder  :laugh:

I agree 100%, Amanda, about what a tough time that was...I was in 6th grade, so that made me 10 too.  I'm worried about a seeming overall trend for girls to start menstruating at earlier and earlier ages.  My mother was 15, I think she said.  I want to blame it on hormones in the food supply, but that may just be a conspiracy theory.  Anyhow I find it worrisome that children so young are maturing sexually when it just doesn't seem possible that they can have the emotional or social maturity needed for dealing with all the stuff that comes with it.

I remember I had to get my 6th grade teacher, Mrs. Shasteen, to convince my mother I was old enough for a bra.  The boys were merciless if they could see your nipples  through your shirt!  ::)  I still hold that one against Mom if the subject comes up!
