I’m a 15 year old who has never had sex or any type of sexual act, my period is very irregular (last time I got it was October 15th) and i didn’t get my period this month which I’m not worried about too much because I know how irregular my period is and it never comes the same day or every month, but I was wiping myself and I noticed I had a bit of blood. Is this spotting or the start of my period but just very light?? I put a pad on and there is a little blood. I have lower back pain which I usually get before my period but I’ve never had sex so if is spotting why do I have it? Spotting is a sign of pregnancy but like I said I am a virgin. Help I’m paranoid!

Hello again, misst20.

There is no need to panic about these things.  As I have mentioned to you before, it's not uncommon at your age to have irregular periods.  This can include a lighter or heavier flow some months.  As your body matures, your periods will become more regular. This is the case for most women, though not all.
