while grocery shopping with my mother for an upcomming party, i told her, "we need to get some sanitary napkins in case there is some type of spill". althought i was way too old, i had no idea that "pads" and "sanitary napkins" were the same thing
I used to think tampons were crayons.
when i got my first period, i didn't want to tell anyone so i tried to figure out tampons by myself. I stuck the whole applicator up there without removing the plastic and walked around proudly for the rest of the day. It took me a whole period to figure out that tampons didn't work that way.
I used to believe that getting your period meant learning where to put a period in a sentence.So I was very little,and had just learned punctuation.My sister came to pick me up from school,and I said "I've got BIG news!"And she was like "what?" and I said I would tell her when we got home.My siter was having her first period then.That's where I got my strange idea from.
So you could just imagine the looks on your mom,aunt's,and dad's face when a 5 year old comes home from school,nose in the air,and proudly announces "I've got my period."We had tea guests also.And my mom pulled me to a corner,VERY embarassed,and said that I didn't,she would explain it all to me later.When I was older.
And Imagine the look on my face when I found out what it truly was.When I actually DID get it.At first,I thought I had a SERIOUS pooping problem and it would stop when I took a poopoo.I didn't tell my mom till 4 days later,when the "pooping" would not stopIt stopped the next day.
I used to believe that a period was when you got cut on your leg,cuz I saw my sisters pants in the laundry basket with blood around the thighs,and me being nosy me,heard them sitting down to the "period talk".So one day while riding my two wheeler in a very strange way,(I was 4 and just learned to ride a two-wheeler)My friend,who happened to be a boy,fell off his bike and scraped his knee badly.Then I laughed to myself.I wanted to be grown-up!So I rid my bike into a brick wall.Ouch.So my mum wouldn't let me ride for a week.Then I found a case of tampons and started putting them on my ankle,where the scrape was.My dad walked in,and started laughing at me.
I had no idea why until age 9,when my older friend told me.Then,a year later,"it" happened.
My mom had to go across the road to our recently divorced neighbour to explain to him that sanitory towels with wings he was using weren't for cleaning windows
Well this isn't about me but I had to explain to my friend David at aged 15 that boys didn't have periods because he became very paranoid that he would start bleeding from his penis at school. Aw bless ya Dave x x x
me and my friend convinced a girl that when you get your period, blood comes out of your belly button and that's where you put a tampon or cover it with a pad.
When I got my first period my mom asked me if I wanted to stay home the next day. I told her that I didn't need to because you only got your period once a year. Then my mom told me the awful truth
One day, I happened to see my mom in the bathroom, pulling out a tampon. At that age, I was not even aware that I had a vagina and I thought she was pulling it out of her anus, so I screamed "Mom, what did you just pull out of your butthole?!"
i use to think that when you get older your body was so weak that you couldnt contain your own bladder. either that or you were too busy to afford to go to the toilet. hence the need for pads.
i used to belive that the reason girls wear pads when they get older is cause they cant control thier bladder and wet themselves....i figured out the truth of that one as i turned 13
Being an 11 year old with to much knowledge for her own good, I was little disturbed when my friend walked up and told me she had started masturbating...I found out later she meant menustrating.
when i was little i heard a tv show say that every one was in a bad mood at the trailor park because it was the 1st of the month(talking about rent due). I knew that women were suppose to be in a bad mood whenever they started their period, so for a long time I thought everyone started on the 1st of the month.
When i was little, i used to think tampons were those toilet paper roll holders since the package was the same shape. Then one day I told my mom i thought we needed a new roll holder and got out a tampon for her. She laughed hystarically and told me that those were not roll holders and said that i wasn't allowed to touch them. LOL
I was over a friend house once, and her moms boyfriend was spending a long time in the bathroom. My friend then told me that she thought he had his comma. In her mind, if a woman got a period, and man would get a comma.
I used to think used tampons were stuffed mice and I always wanted a mouse so I actually picked the dirty one off the garage floor near trash can and showed it off to my buddies and their parents....... NOW I realized why grown ups gave me some surprised looks!!! VERY DISGUSTING!
I used to believe tampons are for dental uses cuz sometimes dentists had to put the cotton rolls in my mouth between my teeth and cheek to absorb my spit so I wont drool. When I lost my tooth at home it was bleeding alot so I was looking for toilet paper but we ran out of it so I found tampons and pushed the applicator to get cotton part out and PUT THEM IN MY MOUTH to absorb blood!! I walked around in the house with string sticking out of my mouth until my mom pulled it out then throw in trash and handled me paper towel.
I was at public restroom I saw the 25 cent machine on the wall that was labeled "FEMININE NAPKINS" and "TAMPONS" I have no idea what they were, so I brought both of them to find out what they really were. I thought the pad was a very thick paper napkin shaped like a peanut was used to wipe off dirty hands after eating just like other paper napkins. I thought tampon was sort of weird thick Pixy Stix candy named Tampax cuz it makes sense... Pixy Stix almost rhymes with Tampax and both of them were a stick.
What's worse... I saved this unopened tampon in my jacket until I was hungry at the store. I opened and tried to eat it but I found out it's a weird cotton stucked in a cardboard toilet roll. My mom grabbed it and threw in garbage quickly and doesnt say anything!! Years later I realized what they were!!!
One night after watching the Cosby Show, one of Rudy's friends explained to her that crossing your eyes would stop your period! Being the dumbass that I am- I believed it! So I sat for two hours on my bed, with my eyes crossed, and realized it wasn't working. My vision was blurry for the next 25mins.
