i used to think that your period came out of your armpit. i have no clue why!
when i was younger my older sister and her friend were talking about their periods, and when i heard that you just keep bleeding i thought that it hurt really bad, and i started crying and they had to calm me down.
WHEN I WAS YOUNG, MY MOTHER TOLD ME THAT THE BLOODY KOTEX IN THE BATHROOM TRASHCAN WERE FROM MY SISTER'S BLOODY NOSES SHE GOT WHILE PLAYING SOFTBALL.
When my mom was a child, she thought that while girls had periods, boys had hemorrhoids!
I used to believe you omly had a period for a few days, then it would stop. When I heard that it was a lot longer, I going crazy! LOL!!!
my mother and aunt shared this belief with me right after the subject of periods were brought into conversation when i was 13. my aunt was a year older than my mother and when she was younger, her own mother had bought a large quantity family sized pack of pads and suddenly they all went missing within a week. when asked why there were so many gone, my aunt replied that the girls at school told her if she didn't change her pad enough, she would get pregnant!
I used to believe that the monthly period lasted only a day. Boy. don't we wish!!!!
I used to believe tampons were for people with bloody noses. thats what i thought a period was. because my mom has nosebleeds and i thought she stuck tampons up her nose when it happened. so i thought this happened to everyone, even guys because my grandpa (her dad) gets nose bleeds too.
once i walked in the bathroom and saw that my grandpa was having a nose bleed and was wiping his nose. I shouted "oh grandpa its ok that your on your period because my mom has tampons under the sink for your nose." lol i cant believe that. i was only about 3.
When I was about four, I noticed that there were these things that were wrapped up like sweets, but shaped like pills (well, to four year old me, anyway) but they were huge for pills, and I didn't know how you could swallow them. Somehow I knew they were Mum's, not Dad's. I think I assumed they were either pills that only grown-up women got to take (taking pills seemed like a much more interesting activity when I was four, probably because you're not allowed to take many) or that they were sweets taht were for grown-up women only. I think I knew what Lillets were by the time I was 9 or 10, but I don't think I connected tampons with these weird pill things for years later. I didn't still think that that's what they were, it's just that I didn't remember my old belief and connect it with the tampons for a while.
when i was 10 i got my period. I ran to my mom crying my eyes out telling her how much i loved her and that i would miss her and to never forget me. when she asked me why i told her that i was bleeding to death. she just laughed and told me that i got my period but i still didn't no what that was until she explained it. Now i think back and laugh!
I used to believe that your pee and your period came out of the same holes. so when u would wear a tampon your pee came out of your butt! i have no idea where i got that from.
When I was about five I used to think tampons were dynamite n that my mom was some kind of secret angent stocking them away next to the toilet just in case.
When I first got my period, I was afraid to use a tampon because I thought I would lose my virginity.
A couple of years ago my cousin ran into my room and said she started her period, i went into the bathroom and found a box of band aids on the floor
When I started my period, I thought I had cut myself some how and try to stop the blood with a lot of bandaids...what a dummy!
WHEN I WAS LITTLE I USED TO BELIEVE THAT PADS WERE USED TO KEEP UR ARMPITS DRY BY STICKING THEM TO THE INSIDES OF UR SHIRTS. AHHAHA HA HA HA.
When I was little, I heard some kind of commercial that mentioned a "menstrual cycle". I got very excited, because I thought it was some kind of bicycle. Like, first you ride a tricycle, then training wheels, then a two wheeler, then a menstrual cycle. I soon learned the truth when I asked my dad for a "menstrual cycle" for my birthday at age 9.
This isnt about my belief but my friend's little sister. When I was in 9th grade I was staying over at my friends. Her 8 year old sister, being as nosy as she is decided to go though my over-night bag and she came across a pad and asked me what it was. Since my friend wasn't in the room to explain it to her and I tend to be shy around that kinda stuff, I simply told her it was a napkin. Of course she knew what a napkin looked like so she didn't believe me so I told her it was a special napkin and I took it away from her.
Later that week my friend came to school and asked me why I told her that. I didn't know why she found out or why she would even care but she said that the night before her first real boyfriend had come over for dinner to meet her family. Her little sister then mysteriously disappeared into the bathroom and brought out a napkin and gave it to her boyfriend saying that "They were special napkins and since he was the guest he should get one." Her mom was then forced to tell her about periods while her boyfriend was there. I found it pretty funny but she said she was so embarassed. We laugh about it now though.
I used to belive that when a woman had her period, she just peed out blood instead of urine..and that was it. i also thought that every woman got it on the exact same day...the 15th for some reason...i assumed this because i had heard it came ONCE a month so i figured it was literally one time...lol
when i was younger about 4 my mum told me that when i was a bit older i would have a visitor from then on i got realy excited because what i thought she meant was santa was coming to see me lol but when i found brown in my pants i found out what my mum meant when i had gone running to the post office shouting BROWN IN MY PANTS
