Before I knew about getting your period, I always thoguht that when you became 13, your pee would turn red. I thought that because I walked into the barhroom on my mom when she was flushing the toilet and I saw red. That was very interesting.... I guess

The first time I got my period I thought I had done something terrible and God was punishing me. Nevermind all the time and money my mum had invested in books and talks to prepare me for this very incident...

I used to believe that when women had periods, they actually shot periods (i.e. full stops) out of their... erm... places.

When I first started my period at age thirteen, I was totally freaked out. I especially hated the way I could feel the blood running (ewww!), and I believed that if I was humming to myself I would trigger the blood so that it would run more. I figured humming would make my pituitary gland vibrate, and that would cause the blood to flow. I stopped humming while on my period for about a year...

My biology teacher in junior high was teaching us about the female reproductive system, and found it the right time to mention the hymen. He told us that there was a small hole for period blood and PEE to get through! U'd think that a fifty-something teacher would know there're two holes...

When I was 6, I thought that your period came out of your butt. Later on I was told that it came out, you know where, and when I was at the mall I kept telling people that I thought I was on my period...I was 8!!

When i was 11 years old i got my first period. Not knowing exactly what it was i believed it was the moment in a womans life when she could get pregnant if she had sex. I knew that men squirted some sort of liquid from their penesis, so i remember getting into the bathtub that night and pouring water from the tap directly into my vagina, hoping to get pregnant!!!
i actually rather enjoyed it.

When i was really little, like two or three my mom would just leave the door open when she went to the bathroom, and sometimes i just be in there, it was no big deal, but one day my mom was putting somthing round in her body, which at the time i though was the end of the toilet paper roll(it was a tampon), and i asked her how come i couldn't do that, and she told me i could when i got older, so at dinner that night, i let my family know that when i got older i was going to put the cardboard at the end of the toilet paper roll in my body.

After my mum told me that during a period an egg was released, I was convinced that an egg like a hen's egg came out of a girl(looking like a poached egg in your pants) and that was the reason for wearing sanitary towels!
Why didn't she just give me a fuller explanation?!

When I was a tot, I went to use the toilet after my mum, and she left something in it that I assumed was the end of a banana dipped in chocolate sauce. I was really confused why she threw that in the toilet, so I thought she was real wack after that. I eventually figured out it was a tampon.

When I was 12 and started my period, I discovered it when I went to use the restroom. Mom had already had "The Talk" with me, so I knew what it was. However, I didn't know that I would bleed for days and days. I thought you just bled once, and you were done for the month. Oh, how I wish that were true!

Even at a young age, I understood that some older adults had to use diapers. So when I saw advertisements on TV for maxi pads, I decided they must be another kind of adult diaper--especially since the ads say they help keep "you fresh and dry"!

When I was about 12, I believed that boys had periods too. I read in a Child
Craft book about boys and masturbation.
I thought that girls periods was called Menstruation; and they called what the boys had masturbation.
I told all my friends this. I was so embarrassed

Me,My friend and her brother had NO clue what she ment,So after he left we asked her and she thought you had a dozen eggs in your stomach and could could only be hit in the stomach 12 times and if you was hit more you couldnt have babies or your period!

One day when i was a kid my mom was talking to my older sister about how she hated going to the doctor for her monthly exam. At this I piped up, "I know why you don't want to go to the doctor. Because he's gonna give you your period!" I was fully convinced that that was how it worked. Kind of makes sense right?
