When I was little I didn't even know about periods.But as I got older I heard my sister got it, I thought when you got it that you would be in a hole lot of pain.One time I asked my sister
if I hurt really bad, and she said no.

When I first got my period I was very suprised b/c I didn't even feel it.
I just noticed when I was going to the bathroom that there was blood in my underwear.

My friend's ittle sister once walked in on her while she was changing a tampon(their bathroom lock doesn't work) and my friend gave her "the talk." A bit later, they were outside and their neighbor-a boy-was acroos the street playing basketball. Her little sister looked at my friend and said "Do you think he has it too?" And she meant a period.

I was looking after a little boy aged 3 and his friend. They went off to play and I later found them in his parents bedroom with his mums tampons and sanitary towels all over the floor, and they were using the tampons as rockets and the san, towels as launch and landing pads!!!!!!!!! They were having great fun!!!!

once, i saw blood in the toilet after my mom got up from it. when i asked her about it she said "my egg broke"
Later i learned that a human's egg is very small, like a period in a book. I wondered how so much blood could fit in such a tiny egg.
I hoped it didn't hurt when the egg broke. Whenever i had blood come out of me it hurt. Later i learned, that yes it does hurt when your egg breaks.

This isn't about myself, but I know these girls are going to be in shock pretty soon.
I was in the girl's washroom in 8th grade and as I was leaving these 7th grade girls pointed into a stall and said to me "EWW! There's a tampon in there!" I looked in and there was the paper that you peel off the sticky side of a pad.

I guess the sex ed we took that year really failed them! They are in for a suprise once they see what they really are.

When I was a little boy, I found my mother's tampons and asked what they were for. She wouldn't tell me, so I decided to try and figure it out by myself.

I noticed that they had a nice convenient loop of string on one end. Perfect for hanging them on doorknobs, so I figured that was what the string was for. I figured that since they hung on doorknobs that the tampons themselves must be fire protectors, so that if the house caught fire, the tampon would prevent the fire from entering that room. My mom got mad and kept removing them from the doorknobs, but still wouldn't tell me what they were for.

I also used to think that Mommies didn't have periods. I thought it went away once you had a baby.

This is kind of a personal one, but up until about five years ago I used to believe that cramps and PMS and things were imaginary. I thought girls talked themselves into it, or used it all as an excuse to get away with all sorts of crap a man could never do.

I'm 23 and female; it just took me a while to grow up. I was very, very wrong.

One day my mom had her period (I was about 5) and didn't want to flush and wake us up. Well, I went to use the toilet and started screaming. I thought someone was dying, I had never seen that much blood before. Needless to say (we lived in a duplex) our neighbors wern't happy at 2:00 in the morning.

Unlike myself woth my own children, my mother was very coy about explaining anything period related. I remember her unpacking the shopping one day and spotting a pack of sannies. I asked her what they were, she didnt answer so I asked her if they were disposable nappes, (similar sized packet in the early '80s),she said they were. This I had to think about as my younger brother was well out of nappies and had only ever used disposables on holiday anyway. So I decided that the only person who could be wearing the nappies was my dad. I asked my mum and again she agreed, (my dad has always been the butt of the jokes on my family), and naturally, as a trusting and innocent 7-year-old, I believed her.

Next day I went in to school and stood up at 'news time' and announced to the claas that my mum was putting my dad back in nappies.

I used to believe that pads were a substitute for pantiliners. Why? I don't know why. All I know is that I used to waste them by putting them on, when I didn't even need them.

When I was in the fifth grade my friends and I had a boy in our class convinced that tampons were a kind of candy and he beleived us. We even told him there were special blood flavoured ones for halloween! He thought that was the coolest thing ever!

When I was in grade 5 a friend of mine had overheard the boys discussing what colour girls period blood was. They concluded that it was black since boys sprem was white and of course boys and girls are opposites!

When I was little, I was talking to my friend Will about periods. I told him what they were, and when I was done, he ran crying to his mom screaming and terrified that he was going to bleed through his penis. Later we had to correct him and he was very embarassed.
