???????????????: If your kid has started, why would it stop in one day?If it is bright red blood, it could come from injured tissue. If it is dark menstrual blood she may spot of fill pads like normal menses.Initial cycles usually start within two-three years of nipple enlargement.They can be very short or last several days. Timing is often irregular, recurring in a few weeks or delayed a couple months.
