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.
When I was younger and my mother was on her period, I would always see her using pads [which I thought were adult diapers] and I never thought it was fair for her to be allowed to pee her pants, when I always had to use the potty.
I thought that when you bled at all, that was your period. So when I got a paper cut on a Saturday (I must have been about 4, now I am 16, while my only brother David had to be 10, now 22) I saw the trickle of blood and yelled "I HAD MY PERIOD!" Of course, my whole family came running. Among them was David. I also thought as soon as you menustrated you immediately had sex. So, I yelled " Now David and I gotta have sex!" And he yelped as I yanked his arm. My mom explained it all to me that night. I was amazed.
This is actually something my little brother thought when he was 5 or 6 - He had need pads and tampons in the bathroom at home, but was too embarassed to ask my mom what they were for. He thought that when a girl reached a certain age that she couldn't control her bladder anymore, and that's what all that stuff was for. My brother thought this for YEARS until he found out otherwise!
i used to think that tampons were for women when they would pee so that it wouldnt go everywhere, cause ive heard stories about how woman would try to pee standing up and it would go everywhere, it wasnt until a few years later when i think i was 11 when i took one and brought it into the kitchen where my parents were and said aloud "what is this thing?" then by dad told me what they were REALLY for, and i was like speachless lol
When I was younger I learned about tampons. Well, I can't really say I learned much about them... Actually, I was quite disgusted with anyone who used them. You see, I knew about sex and everything, and I knew the place where a man's 'tool' is put, was the same as a tampon. I also believed that a tampon was just a plastic tube, ((Due to the plastic tube it's in.)) And since, you never see the rest of the tampon after use, I had nothing to argue against me.
So, due to my knowledge, and lack of knowledge, I believed that a tampon was a plastic tube that was insterted into a femaale and filled with blood during her perion. I also believed, due to what I believed a tampon was, that it doubled as a pleasure device. ((Like a dildo))
Both me and my friend believed this.
Boy did I feel stupid when I found out how they really worked...
On a related note. I know someone at my school who put a tampon in for the irst time without reading the instructions or having someone tell them about it, and so she didn't take the plastic part out. ^^;
Oh well. Live and learn, no?
I used to believe that once a girl started getting her period, she would get it everyday for the rest of her life.
My friend and i are both 15 and she has a sister one year younger. One day we were with our other two girlfriends and our gay guy friend and we (for some reason I can't remember) were talking about tampons. My friend suddenly starts laughing and when we ask her why she says, "When my sister was really little she walked in on my mom in the bathroom, and ran out coming to ask me if she was going to grow a string like mommy." KLind of gross, but still funny!
I didn't know how tampons were used. I always thought they sat in the underwear, just like a pad. It never made sense to me.
i had a friend that had two older borthers. his older brothers had him convinced that he would get his period when he reached puberty. and when he was in middle school he got hit in the kidney while playing football and because of it he peed blood for a day or so, and he announced to everyone that he had finally gotten his period
I had my first period when I was 10 years old, and thought that was it - you never got one again. So, one day I proudly announced in front of my Nan and Grandad, two aunts and my mum, "Hey guess what?! I don't have to wear sanitary pads any more!!!"
When we were all 12 or so and getting our periods for the first time there was one girl in our group who hadn't started yet and as it was a big thing for the rest of us we were constantly talking about it...so once all of us had started but one she came to me one day and told me she had her period and could she borrow a pad. I asked her a little later how it was and she said it was alright but the pad was sticking to her and made it uncomfortable to walk...she'd stuck it to herself and not her underpants.
As it turned out she was so desperate to be just like the rest of us that she pretended to have her period but had no idea what to do....Were we really that clicky back then?
When we were about 12-13 years old one of the girls in my little group had a few days in a row of really greasy stinky hair...we staged an intervention and she confessed to us that her mum told her that she can't wash her hair when she has her period. She couldn't actually give us a reason why but I suppose some kids listen to what their parents tell them...*SHOCK*!!!!!
(1955)I was about nine years old, sitting in the back seat and enjoying a casual drive with my mother and her friend on a warm, Sunday afternoon. We happened passed a large building within a hospital complex where I noticed, carved on its cement surface in large capital letters, was the word, "ADMINISTRATION". I recalled something I read from my, "Everything a Boy Should Know About Sex", book and wanting to show off my knowledge, I shouted out, "Mom, I know what that building is! That's where women go every month!"
I used to believe that when you started your period it was just minute. So I started my period at church and thought no more about it (I was 11)when I went to the restroom there was blood in my panties so I said no big deal. So I went back to sit down. When church was over I got up and blood was all on the seat and my close. I was embarrased to tell someone.
a few months ago, my mom had just got done talking to my sister about periods and she told her that women can get their periods at around age nine and I walked in. my sister proudly tells me that she si going to have her period at 9 o'clock. i wondered what my mom had told her.
I got my first period exactly one week before my mom had her hysterectomy (sp?) and i didnt tell her because i thought she'd be so mad at me because she wouldnt have one anymore!
my mom told me i would know when i got my period because there would be blood. So I actually had been having my period for about three months and didn't know it because i thought my pee would turn red. I went to the doctor that month because i kept getting a bellyache. He told me i was having my period, and i told him no because my pee was still yellow!
When my grandma was young she thought if she wore a [ad she would get he period sooner.
When I was about seven I thought you bled out of your breasts on your period.
Until I was eleven,I thought once you had your period you ALWAYS had it every single day until menopause.
