Discharge starts as a female enters puberty, it will then continue for the rest of their life. Discharge and menarche aren't directly related, the most we can say is that a female normally reaches menarche within around four days of starting puberty.

How long will you have discharge before your period?

Discharge starts as you enter puberty - there is no specific length of time between starting to get discharge and getting your first period, however it is normal to get your first period will start within four years of starting puberty. It's also normal just before your first period to see changes to your discharge such as clear stretchy discharge like egg-whites 2-3 weeks before your period which then becomes thicker and heavier getting closer to your period, often followed by pink or brown discharge ('spotting') just before your period starts.

Is vaginal discharge sign of having period soon?

No, vaginal discharge isn't a sign of having a period soon. Discharge starts as you enter puberty as this is how the vagina keeps itself clean and healthy, menarche (first period) occurs within four years of starting puberty. Discharge changes leading up to your period but until you've had your cycles for a while it is unlikely that you would be able to tell from discharge when your period is due.

Do you have to have discharge to get your period?

Um I'm actually not sure what you're asking. But if you haven't yet had your first period, and you're wondering if you might get it soon even though you have not experienced discharge yet... I'd tell you that you're unlikely to start your period before having discharge. Even once you start to find discharge it could still be a while. However, I'm sure its not impossible to have your period before discharge. If that's not what you're asking, try rewording your question.I'm not sure about your age, but I started to get discharge when I was in Year 6 [age 11-12] So really, I think you're meant to get discharge first, before your period. As, I'm sure you're aware, you get them both once you've started. Hope this helped.

When your having discharges how far are you from your period?

Discharge starts as you enter puberty, typically menarche (first period) will start within four years of entering puberty - however there is no specific time frame. Your discharge will change before your period so it's worth paying attention to your discharge - 2-3 weeks before menstruation you may notice stretchy clear discharge like egg-whites which feels wetter, between then and menstruation your discharge will get thicker and white more like lotion. Just before your period you may also notice 'spotting' which is a little blood in your discharge, this will be brown, pink or have spots of red.
