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!
When I was little, I always thought the pad despenser in public bathrooms gave you sugar cubes. I'm not sure why but I was always mad when my mom said I wasn't old enough to need one.
I had a friend who i was staying with on her dad's lakehouse. Her dad's girlfriend brought along her kid who was like, 10. me and my friend were both 14. We both knew alll about periods and stuff. she had a tampon in her makeup bag and we were sitting in her room doing our makeup. The 10 year old Kyle, walked in and started talking to us. He was poking though her makeup bag and saw the tampon. He said "what's this?" and my friend said "lipgloss". we started cracking up when he left.
When I was little, my cousin told me that both men and women got periods and that men gave women their periods. In response I suggested the vice versa, "and women give men men their periods?" My cousin responded by correcting me and telling me that only men gave women their periods. I didn't really wonder where men got theirs from. I seem to remember demonstrations with Ken and Barbie dolls.
Before I knew about periods and stuff, I asked my mum what these little packages (sanitary towels) were and she told me they were 'lady's tissues'. I got the wrong message thinking whenever my mum got a cold, she'd use these 'lady's tissues'.
I did not know much about periods, My mom tried explaining me about the blood stains. " I just laughed and I told her I am feeling well. Why on hell will I be bleeding? And arrogently told her that U think too much about all dangers and diseases". She never again tried explaining . And finally when I got my period I was scared that I had CANCER and decided So only mom was telling me all that stuff that day. I went and told my mom about that when she explained That I was not having CANCER. It was really hard to belive that day. Hahahaaaaaaaaa......
when i was small, i used to think your period was when you started growing hair on your private parts. When my older sisters friend got her period, and we couldnt go to hurricane harbor, i was so upset. i couldnt figure out why! I just kept thinking "well does it itch or something?!"
My best guy friend is kind of nerdy. I noticed he started to act really weird around me on the 15th of every month. He would buy me ice cream at lunch and stuff, and also he would act weird around all our female teachers. One day he whispered to me, "I know my english teacher has her period today, so I'm just gonna shut up in that class." I replied, "WHAT? How did you know that?" He blushed and said sorry. That same day at lunch, I ate pizza, which I never eat, and he said, "Katie, you never eat pizza. Is that because of your...*looks right and left* period?" I was like, "What? I don't have that TODAY!" Well, it turned out he thought all girls got their periods beginning on the 15th of every month.
i used to believe that when a woman had here period a woman stood up and a put a cup under there legs and "the egg cam out" and the woman would drink the blood.
wheni was in fifth grade we had the perid/sex ed talk at school in an all girls room.in the other room the boys were having study hall and they would have their talk some other time . after it was over we got these kits of pads and tampons and deoderant and calanders and guides on puberty
and stuff like that. after it was done we walke d out and waved or kits at the boys saying "We got goody bags!!!"
When I was little I thought that sanitary napkins were very clean napkins that one used for special occasion meals.
well when i was a kid , i used to see my sister using sanitary tissues...she tried to hide them from me but as i was a curoius kid, i would try n peek into her cupboard.one day , not being able to hide my curiosity, i asked her what thay were for and she(not knowing what to say) told me that they were for feeding old people as they didnot have any teeths and could only suck liquid food...i kept this belief with me for a very long time untill i stumbled upon the truth...
I saw pad advertisments on t.v. and thought they were for people with bladder problems since they could "absorb liquid" and gave "excellant protection at night."
When I was 11 and finally asked what pads were for, my older sister quickly explained it, but I was confused and thought that once you got a period, you had it forever, like you were going to bleed down there non-stop until you were old. Naturally, I was absolutely terrified of getting my period!
In fourth grade, the classrooms that my friend and I were in was in a different part of the school where all the older kids were. The first week of school was when we first saw the pad and tampon dispenser in the bathroom. Both of us were mystified at what was in there. So during lunch one day, my friend brought some quarters and dimes and we were going to investigate. First, the pads we figured were just for people who had a hard time making to the bathroom in time. The problem was we couldn't even guess what a tampon did so at the end of lunch, we hid the things under the teacher's desk. It was only until the next year that we had the sex education talk.
I read a book in the library because I was bored, about girls and puberty. I learned about how we have periods, and I learned about tampons. I thought you were only allowed to use one tampon in your entire life, and periods lasted every day. (It got reaaaaaaaaly distorted) I knew they started when you were 10-14, but I thought they lasted until the day you died. I also thought everyone wore a tampon always, and that it turned into a baby when you got married (I had a wild imagination). I never knew about sex because my parents were strict, very strage catholics, but I figured it out through another library book =). So, after we left the library, I saw a buch of women and thought "They all have tampons inside them." I finally got straightened out by my mom when I was 10. Thank God.
I knew that girls got periods because I am a girl (duh). I always saw the pad/tampon machines in teh women's bathroom. But onetime, the women's bathroom was really full, so my dad took me into the men's bathroom (I was 8). I saw the pad/tampon machines and I got scared and confused and ran out. I asked my mom about it and she told me men didn' tget periods.
I used to believe that a period was something that you'd get when you wanted to have babies. The docter would do sugery on you so you could have a baby, and then becuase of that you'd bleed every now and then.
I was -so- scared...
My friend once told me that when she first got her period, she thought she would spend every other month bleeding for the entire month. When her mom found her with a calendar figuring out which months would be her "period months", she explained to my friend how it really works.
I thought when I started my period it was one day out of the month. Not a week. Three days went bye and I told my mom theres something wrong with me, I need to go see a doctor, Im bleeding to death.
when I was younger I thought pads were used to catch those little drops of pee that got in your pants if you didn't get there quite in time. Later I found out it was to keep blood off you pants, and not pee, I was like "oh so it's for catching blood when you get a shaving nick down there, not for pee, that explains it!" Then a few years later I realised it was the whole menstrual system and thought my solution was so much more practical than that.
