I used to believe woman's tampons were made to dry your hands with (because there was a tv commercial in which a woman keeps the tampon in her hand and tells it absorbs so much fluid)

I used to think my mom's non-applicator tampons were some kind of a bullet - and that she might use them if she got mad.

When I was little all of my older sisters and their friends were getting their periods and talking about them. I didn't know what a period was, so I associated a 'menstrual cycle-period' with the 'punctuation mark-period'. I one day chased my older sister trying to see the "period dot" on her "peepee", that they called a "period". I thought it was a little tiny dot somewhere down there that bled. Of course, unfortunately, I know NOW what a period really is.

WHEN I WAS LITTLE,THE CORNER STORE HAD A DISPLAY OF KOTEX IN THE WINDOW. WHEN I ASK MY MOM WHAT THEY WERE SHE SAID A WOMAN PUT THEM UNDER HER ARM PITS TO KEEP FROM SWEATING ON HER CLOTHES. WISH IT COULD HAVE BEEN THAT SIMPLE.

I started my period on christmas day. Now, much to my embarrasmet, my seven year old brother noticed first the red splash on my Pajama pants. he looked at me and my mother, who was coming over to tell me, and remarked:

"Mommy, I think ______ spilled paint on herself!"

He still dosen't know what was really going on, and its been two years.

I used to believe that girls had their period all the time non-stop and that they bled out of their hands.

I knew a man who never got the sex education in school right. He thought periods were for girls who were sexual active, so virgins didn't get periods.

In the 5th grade, we all knew we were going to have the "sex ed" and we would talk about what it was about. One girl said she knew all about it, and that we girls had to save our blood from our periods for the baby. That's why we needed sanitary napkins.

When I was 5 years old, my mother took me into a public bathroom in a hospital, and for the first time, I saw a tampon dispensor. I asked what my mom what a tampon was, and without wanting to get into details, she told me it was a piece of cloth women used to stop them from bleeding.
We exited the bathroom and began telling me about the operation she had on her sinus' and that she would have to go back to the hospital next week to change the gauze in her nose which was stopping all the blood.
Infront of all the medical staff and other patients, I (loudly) told her to save herself the trip and just stuff tampons up her nose, as that's what they were made for.

I couldn't figure out why everyone was laughing.

As a child, I used to be terrified of starting my period, so terrified I was convinced that if I drank too much red colored liquid, my period would start.

When I was about 9 or 10 one of my friends had told me that while you were on your period you could not get wet or your head would split open. When I got my period at 12 I was terrified to take a shower, but my mother insisted that it was not true.

No one ever told me how exactly the period works. I had no idea what to expect! When I got my first one I was so confused and my mom was in bed so I couldn't ask, but I believed (stupidly) that it just stops while you're sleeping, that it takes a break, that you only have it for a few hours a day. Damn I wish it was true though

When I was about 8, mom told me to clean down there really well. So I did. and I pretty quickly figured out how to masturbate. The first time I had an orgasm, I that my vagina/vulva (didn't know the difference in those words back then) was magical so I'd make a wish when I masturbated. One time I wished to have a penis so I could pee standing up becasue I thought that would be cool for some reason. Then the next week I had my first period and I really thought that I was growning a penis inside me and that's why I was bleeding!!

I used to think that once you got your period parts of your body started to fall away because you lost blood

My mum asked me what I knew about periods when I was nine. It was awkward but I told her. I said, "well you belled every month...." My little sister, who was 7 at the time walked in and said, "well if u bleed every month, just use a band-aid.

When I was in PE in 5th grade and we had just had "the talk," I got a sudden pain in my vagina, which I later realized was my hymen randomly stretching, and I thought it was my period starting and I was freaking out and kept subtly reaching my hand to the crotch of my pants when no one was looking to feel if they were wet
