Menstruation

Menstruation, also known as a period or monthly, is the regular discharge of blood and mucosal tissue (known as menses) from the inner lining of the uterus through the vagina. The first period usually begins between twelve and fifteen years of age, a point in time known as menarche. However, periods may occasionally start as young as eight years old and still be considered normal.

Yes, it is permissible to keep on wearing an amulet, talisman, stone, etc. If the verses, Divine Names, or names of Ma'sumeen (a.s.) appear on the outside, then you should avoid touching it. Or, you are able to laminate it, or cover it with clear coloured nail polish, to avoid accidentally touching it. 

Yes, you can also read more than seven verses. the only verses you must not read are the verses that have a wajib sajdah. 

These verses are in Surah Fussilat, Najm, Sajdah and 'Alaq.

This is normal. 

Dealing with one's urges when they are inconvenient is also part of the human condition. Unfortunately there is currently no solution to one of the problems of modernity: that biological maturity (puberty) happens before social maturity (at which time one usually marries).

Islamically, the shariah-prescribed options are marriage (regardless of whether it involves traditional social roles or not, what form it takes, etc) or abstinence. 

Marriage: That's between yourself and your family and your personal/social situation. There are other questions here that discuss that which you could look at.

Abstinence: Forewarned is forearmed. Since you know what days will be more challenging, you can explore what sort of interventions help calm your hormones down. Some women find it helpful to exercise more or avoid certain foods around those days (especially chocolate, meat, or animal products - especially given how many hormones are given to animals today). One can also simply try to think about other things.

Fasting doesn't usually seem to have the same effect on women that it seems to on men with respect to calming down one's urgers (in fact many women say it has the opposite effect), but everyone is different.

Ideally, the higher side of the human being should control the animal side, in a way that a horseman controls his steed. In reality, this is often a work in progress for people. But, there is a virtue in trying.

If the type of divorce was a khul'i divorce, you are able to return during the 'iddah period, but with a new marriage contract. This means you will need to perform a nikah ceremony, along with its requirements. 

That is the fiqhi answer, but of course it would be highly recommended for both sides to contemplate on what led to the initial divorce, and how healthy it is to rush back in so quickly. Establishing boundaries, putting conditions and understanding what needs to improve on both sides is extremely necessary in order to eliminate previous problems and happily live together.

And Allah knows best.

Whenever the period starts, fasting is finished and not valid. She can eat and drink whenever she needs but it is not good to eat or drink in front of fasting persons or children who don't understand why she is not fasting.

Fast is immediately invalid as soon as the menstrual cycle starts even if one minute before Maghrib. You will get the reward of what you did, but you must keep that day later on as Qadha fast.

In these matters it is crucial to refer back to your Marja' taqleed, for the specific ruling, but from the view of A. U. Seyid Sistani, if you were confident you did not have to redo those days as qadha', you do not need to pay kaffarah, but you do need to redo those days as qadha`.

In the case of haydh, the maximum number of days that you do not pray/fast would be 10 days, depending on the circumstances you are in. 

If your blood is continous, then you will need to find out where during this period is your haydh days, and the rest being istihadhah. With the istihadhah days, depending on how much blood there is, you will still be able to pray and fast. 

Please familiarise yourself with the rulings of haydh/istihadhah, and below is a presentation that could help you towards this, in shaa Allah:
