Vaginal Spotting and Discharge

Question: I haven't gotten my period yet but I have discharge and have had spotting once is this normal

Dr. Farah Kroman: Periods usually start around age 12 but it can be anywhere from 11 to 16. Periods can be very light when they first start and usually irregular. Keep track with a period app on your phone or in a calendar including that time when you spotted. If it bothers you talk with your doctor.
