* NoPeriodsPeriod: Averted; Alison gets her first period at 13, but doesn't tell anyone for several months. She also notes a fair amount of distaste for the experience, since her first few cycles look like "a slight brown secretion".[[note]]This is often the case with a girl's first periods, and even later in life the blood from menstruation is often dark red or brownish-red, not the vivid color of blood from a cut or wound[[/note]]
