My mum got me some books on periods and growing up and the like from the library when I was about that age, and since they were a little out of date I assumed I would have to get a belt and pad get-up like our mothers used to have to wear.
When , as a boy, I first started to hear about the strange phenomena of "periods" I assumed that women all had their monthly cycle on exactly the same day. Yes, all 3 billion...
When i was 8 my older cousin was on her period and she told me not to bug her because her "little fairy of the month" was here, i found out that she ment her period and pu together the information i already knew about periods and came to the conclution that a little fairy came in the middle of the night and flew up the girls vagina, then went into the womb and set up a little living area in there with a tv and a couch and everything and every few hours flicked her magic wand and the stuff would come out.....yeeeaaa, i was wrong
my friend was at my sleepover and 1 time she had to go to the bathroom, the next thing we knew she was screaming soooo loud that that a few neighbours came over! she was screaming !!!!!!! I'M DYING!!!!! we all rushed over to her and relised that she was just having her period! she then had to go home to be explained what a period is!
I used to think that a period happened in both a male and female, and instead of blood, a man/woman would have occasional orgasms/ejaculations at random times as they got older.
On my mother's birthday some years ago, my little brother didn't know what to give her, so he gave her a pad. He thought that it was a present, being small and covered in coloured plastic.
when i was like 13 and my little brother was 4 years old, he started to ask about period and what it means.i explained all about it and added a little something... that he would also have period and bleed through his #%$!!! days after i caught him putting one of my absorbants on his shorts very carefully :))).it took about a year to get that idea out of his head: i know...i was a sick little girl
i used to think, for some reason, that you got your period when you were about 13, but finished them when your stopped being a teenager (about 20). i also knew you couldn't get pregnant once your periods had stopped... it never occured to me that my mum was 30 when she had me! luckily, my friend corrected my belief before too long!
my mother would tell me what a period was and how i was gonna get one i believed that she was lying to me so she could scared me( she loves to scare me) and that she told the whole world to keep lying so i could fall for it.
My mother always told me that somewhere between 10 and 12 years old, I would go through a 'change'. I know what she meant now, but when I was 6 or 7, I was convinced that she meant I would 'change' from a girl to a boy. I was so worried about all my 'girl' toys...what would happen to them??? What about clothes? I didn't have any 'boy' clothes! What would I do??? When I finally got old enough, and I did go through the 'change', I was so relieved!!!!!
I used to believe that pads were shoe inserts. They were the right shape and they looked comfortable enough...
When I was around 8, before I ever had "The Talk", my Aunt was expecting. We were at a picnic and she had a mis-carriage, but it looked like her period to me. Everyone wa stalking about her having a mis-carriage and losing her baby. When I had my first one, I screamed for my mother and told her I had a mis-carriage. She laughed so hard she fell down, and finally explained it to me. I was 13 before I finally learned the truth.
My friends' mother use to call having her period "When the river runs red". My friend lived next to a small stream, and use to watch it everyday to see when she'd have hers.
Before they gave us the sex ed talk in school - you remember, don't you? You went to a seperate room from the boys, they showed you a little movie, gave you free tampons and pads? Yea. That talk.
Anyways, before then, i thought that women got their periods in their breasts. I thought that the tv ads with women in towls and always grasping at their chest when they got out (you know, the dainty 'who me' look that one commercial had).. yea. i was a sheltered kid. A weird one too.
I had a friend that thought that you peed and bled out of the smae hole so she took her tampon out every time she went pee until my other fried told her the truth.lol
when my fren first got her period, she thought she had some terminal disease and that she was going to die. she even told one of her male friends that!
When I first got my period I was really scared to put a tampon in. My mom told me that I would be fine. I told her that I didn't want to do it cause I might put it in the wrong hole and then I would be bleeding still but I wouldn't be able to pee!
my son around 4yrs old believed that everyone got their periods. once i took him to the dr and he had secretly put on one of my moms pads. when the dr checked him down there, he asked me why he was wearing it. my son was giggling so hard. the dr was angry cause he thought i had done incase my son had an accident. while i was trying to explain i didnt know, my son was still giggling.
he hates when i tell that story now.
When I was 10-13, my dad decided it was time to tell me about my period. Not wanting to go into detail (or maybe he didn't know?), he just said, and I quote, "One day, you'll pee, and it'll be red, and that's your period." That's all he said. So I had to figure some stuff out on my own...
I knew periods were red, but on the tampon comercials, the stuff they pour on the tampons is blue! So I reasoned that the blue came from the horrible "cramps" everyone was talking about. But why were cramps so bad? Because they are little balls (about an inch in diamiter), that are covered in spikes. The period tries to push the cramp out (one cramp a month), but it gets stuck in the, uh, pee-hole, because it's too big to fit through. The spikes are then pressed into your body, which hurts, until the period is too strong to be held back, and it breaks the cramp open so it can get disolved back into the body. Inside the cramp is the blue stuff, which then comes out with the "red pee".
It wasn't until I was 15, when I got my period, that I realized just how wrong I was... Oh, and my dad denies that he ever called a period "red pee".
During 4th grade sex ed, our teacher told us that when a girl got her period, it was like a faucet being turned on inside of her. All of the girls were convinced from that point on that there was a giant faucet that spewed blood stuck in our tummies.
my friend's little brother used to belive that you got a period after you kissed a boy. when my friend got hers he over heard us talking and he shouted " MOM MOM!!!!! ALEX KISSED A BOY!!!!!!" we laughed so hard it wasn't funny!
