    Women get their periods at all different ages. Pretty much anytime by age 16 years old is normal to get your period. It can start out as a normal period, or it can start out with brown blood, which is basically your body getting rid of old blood. There is no way to know when your period will start, or how soon (or late) it will start. Worrying about it only delays it even more (as is the case with extreme stress). Don't worry, and let it happen when it happens.

    The injection that you had at school was a vaccination against human papiloma virus which is responsible for about 9o% of all cancers of the cervix.  This means it's

    practically impossible for you to get this type of cancer.  As other's have said it's perfectly normal for you to not have periods yet.  I think you should try and get the courage to talk to your mum.  The pains you are getting could be a number of things.  It's probably worth a trip to see your GP to reassure you.  It's quite common to get all sorts of health anxieties at your age.  So don't read too much into what you see written online.  Just rely on real people in your life who you can trust, hopefully this will be your parents and your GP.  Good luck
