Can Your First Period Last Only One Day?

Question: Hello. I got my first period about 2 weeks ago. It was definitely a period but it only lasted that one day. It didn't happen again. I’m really confused?!

Dr. Farah Kroman:Congratulations and welcome to womanhood! Periods can start really lightly or briefly and are often irregular for the first year or so. Don't worry and mark your calendar to start tracking your cycles.
