When i was in 4th grade, i went to the bathroom, i opened one of the stalls (u know how u check to see is the toilet is empty and stuff) and i saw blood in the toilet!!!! i though that it was from someone bleeding and dying, so i ran to my classroom and went right up to my female teacher and said "THERE'S BLOOD IN THE POTTY!!"(i though i had saved the day) this happened to me a few times and whenever i told her she'd just be like, okay. i would always be so mad at her for not making a big deal
Up until the day I got my period I thought it would be a lot like going to the bathroom. You'd feel a pressure near your bladder, excuse yourself to use the bathroom and blood would come out insted of pee.
One day, I had my friend from school over. We were about 7, I think. We were playing dolls in my room when out of the blue, she asked me: "Have you had your period yet?"
Being the somewhat bodily uneducated child that I was, I said "What's that?"
She answered "I think it's where girls bleed every once in a while."
The conversation went as following:
Me: "Oh, I've never heard of that."
Her: "Me neither. I just heard about it today."
Me: "Maybe not every girl has one."
Her: "Yeah, I think you're right."
We went on playing.
I know better know. XD
i remember being in my parents room, i must have been around 7 or 8 at the time, and i came across a box of tampons. so i went through the whole box and opened and cut the strings off of every single one. then she had to sit me down and explain what they were to me.
In 1st grade I found a pad in our bathroom and, very confused, asked my mom what it was. She sat me down for the long, detailed "your body and puberty" talk, in which she told me all about what would happen on my "special day".
Unfortunately, she wasn't very clear. For YEARS afterward I was convinced that 'Period Day' was a secret holiday every month that every woman would get her period. There'd be balloons and cake and presents, and everyone would have a grand time. We would even get the day off of school!
Needless to say, I was horribly disappointed later when I found out that the only presents I'd be getting would be gross panties, headaches and cramps.
Some holiday that turned out to be.
At 10, we had the "period and puberty" talk from a health visitor at school. She was quite an old person and told us lots of things wrong. Like she said sanitary towels were the only option and there was nothing else we could use so we couldnt do any sport or go swimming during our period. And that we were never allowed to tell the lads in our class anything that she told us. I ended up with a lot of false information after that,
When I was about ten, people were always talking about how fast I was growing up. Around Christmas, I was looking at all the wrapped presents, trying to figure out what they were. One was slightly round, about 6x3 inches, and I knew exactly what it was. It couldn't be anything else, I decided. It was a tampon.
I wasn't sure what a tampon was, but I knew it was part of growing up. I stressed about it for days, trying to figure out what to tell my parents. What if they didn't know what a tampon was? What would I tell them?
Finally, Christmas morning came, and I put off opening that gift for as long as possible. I finally got up the nerve to open it, and... it was a bottle of shampoo.
When I was seven, I use dto believe a woman would die fro getting her period. She would bleed to death.
When I was really little I used to believe tampons were for keeping a woman's pubes from getting inside her. Some genius on the subject of periods I was. :P
i used to believe that when i put a tampon the plastic was supposed to stay on. this was around the time the "pearl girl" phase of tampons first came out, and i remember being in violent pain every time i used one. I dont know how, but i even got the stick part of the applicator in therre!
Back then pad samples from Always used to be sent out in the mail. When I was 11 years old, I got a hold of the pad samples and brought them to my older sister saying, "Look we got free slippers in the mail."
I was in Grade 7 and we were learning about internal injuries in our First Aid Class. The symptoms were:
Persistent pain in the abdomen that does not go away
Passing blood (Like when you pee)
A day later, I woke up with a headache and stomachache, they didn't go away. When I went to school, the stomachache got so bad that I threw up, so I had to go to the nurse. I found some blood in my underwear and in the toilet. So I was convinced I had like punctured my stomach or something and told the nurse so. Except then she told me I got my period. Huh. Imagine that. And the worst part is that I knew everything about getting your period, so it's not like I was clueless or anything.
When I was little I went to this basketball game and I bought some sticky food and there were no napkins so when I went into the girls bathroom and saw that it said napkins I was happy and so I asked my parents for a quarter and so
I Bought a napkin and I was like " These napkins are weird."
I saw feminine napkins in the bathroom as a child. I thought they were padded toilet paper for the softer feminine persuasion
I remember sitting on my bed, reading a magazine, when I saw a tampon ad. I sat there for the longest time trying to figure out where it went. Because the ad said 'odor absorbing,' I thought it went on your armpit. That was just one theory.
When I first got my period, I didn't know how to use a tampon. I thought that you just had to squeeze it and it would just shoot up inside you. I wasted ALOT of my friends tampons trying to work that out.
I used to believe that if you had a period then you had an awful internal disease, and would have to be rushed to hospital where a nurse would put a thing called a pad up your butt and a pamton in your knickers. I know better now and don't get the names mixed up anymore.
When I was little, I used to think that tampons were for cleaning out the toilet
When i was in 4th grade we had a talk in class about puberty and we had a movie we had to watch about it well...they accidently switched the movies and the guy's got the girl one and we got the guy one it didn't take to long to figure it out but well the guys were realy imature about it
When I was about 9 and hanging out with the older girls at the boarding school, they were talking about periods of which I knew nothing but pretended I did. They convinced me that boys had periods too and had pads shaped like hot dog buns to fit over their penis to catch the blood. I think I believed that until I was 13!
