when i was 12, i started my periods, when i first woke up that very day, i thought i had wet the bet, because it was soaked, but when i saw that it was brown, i thought that i must have pooped the bed. I tried to hide it but the rest of my family found out. I robbed a few of my sisters pads and tampons, and piled up 9 pads and 4 tampons in my underwear, because i thought i just couldn't stop wetting myself, or pooping myself. i didnt quite no what periods were, coz i was off for the sex talk in school.Everyone in school noticed i had huge bulges in my underwear, and that the pads and tampons would keep slipping out and hanging below my skirt, coz i hadn't stuck them in. I got so embarrassed, because someone told the teacher that i had robbed something and snuck it in my underwear, so i had to lower my knickers, and the 4 tampons and 9 pads fell out onto the floor, i was embarrassed, because they put me in a diaper for the rest o the day, and told me about periods
Once when I was really little, like three and a half maybe, I found a box of sanitary napkins under the sink. While my mother was out in the living room entertaining a male family friend, I decided to show everyone a new use for those sanitary napkins. The next thing you know, theres little Sara, skating out into the living room with nothing on at all except for a sanitary napkin, sticky side up, on either foot, and one, sticky side up again, on my privates. i dont know...I was a strange little bird.
When I was little, my mom kept a box of sanitary pads in her dresser. I had asked what they were and she told me napkins and I'd be able to use them in a few years. One night we didn't have table napkins for dinner and I said, "mom, you want me to get those napkins out of your dresser drawer?"
I thought I was going to die when I saw blood on my panty. I was scared, kept this to myself and cried silently. Then eventually I told my mom and said its normal for females to have menstruation.
When I was about 2 or 3 I found some of my mothers pads. I opend some finding you could peel off the little strip on the back revealing a sticky layer. I thoght they were stickers and I put them all over the bathroom. My mother fell to her knees laughing when she found me.
after hearing about the virgin mary in church, i asked my mom what a virgin was, and she said it was a girl who hadn't fully developed yet, like mary, since she was so young. when i was in the 5th grade, my friend dara got her period. my mom heard about it from my teacher, and she told me. so for awhile i would say that dara wasn't a virgin anymore.
I used to believe that a woman's period was just a little simple thing. Like a tiny little bit of blood and that was all. I never understood why the ads for pads and tampons made such a big deal about it. I figured that when I got my period I would just ignore it instead of making a huge deal about it like the ladies in the ads. I was incredibly shocked when I found out, from better informed friends, it could last up to seven days and you couldn't just ignore it.
When i was little i asked my mom what a period was. She told me it was when your body started changing. I had also heard it referred to as a red spot. So i thought that you got a red pimple on your thigh, and your face started to morph so you looked totally different then how you looked before you had your period.
Until he was 12 and my mom explained it to him, my brother was convinced that pads were "vagina protectors" and were worn to keep any germs from getting into the vaginas. He even demonstrated how they were put on to me (very gross), by sticking the adhesive side to the crotch. I tried to tell him he was wrong, but he wouldn't listen. It was very funny when it hurt him to take it off, though.
He also believed that tampons were inserted into someone (man or woman)'s butt if they had to poop but didn't want to because they were in a public area or something. The tampon would stop the poop coming out so the person could wait until they got home to go in privacy.
I thought pads sucked blood from women. It wasn't until later in life that I knew their actual purpose
My little sister looked in the bathroom cabinet to find some of my sanitary towels.
She brought them into my room, while all my friends were with me, and asked me why i still wore nappies at my age!
My friends were laughing the whole night!
When I was younger I had a friend (Amy) who found some of her mom's pads. She asked Brenda (her mom) what they were and her mom told her they were pads. Well, one day Amy wanted to go rollerblade and her mom told her she needed to wear her pads. So Amy came out with sanitary napkins on her knees and elbows. LOL
When I was wee, my little brother told me that girls get one period and they bleed until they die and the only way not to die was to stop the period by having a baby. Then the baby would suck all your milk out until you died that way. I decided pretty soon after that that I'd prefer to be a boy, but after finding out about wet dreams and how they were your insides leaking out through your wee-wee until you were all wrinkled out like a dried prune I quickly changed my mind back again.
My friend who first got her period was in 4th grade. One day in the lunch line she told me that her mom told her that she got her peroid. I thought that her mom went out and bought her this thing. So I went home, and asked my mom if she would buy me a period.
When my sister and I were girls and saw femenine pads in my mom's drawer we were so excited to find small pampers for our dolls, we actually attempted to go out with our dolls wearing those "pampers", of course our mom didn't let us, so I asked her what it was and she told us that they were used to remove make up, so we believed her until 6th grade when we actually found out the truth.
When I was younger in primary school, we walked into the classroom and saw a tampon, only it had been pulled out. A friend screamed "IT'S A MOUSE! GET IT OUT!!" Our teacher stormed into the classroom and demanded to know what the fuss was about. We were all on our chairs by then exept a few boys who were stroking this `mouse`. Until year 6 I believed that tampons were mice.
When I was prepubescent, I found a sanitary napkin (not soiled) face up in our bathroom wastepaperbasket. I have four older sisters. One of them told me it was an insert you put in your shoe to make it padded and therefore, more comfortable.
when i was little i thought a period would consist of a very small droplet of blood.. looking like a punctuation mark. i wanted to be more 'grown up' so i would take a red marker and make a dot on my panties .. assuming that my mother would see it and realize i had started getting my period. she never said a word, and i'm sure she probably never even noticed it was there.
if only i'd been right
I used to think that women's periods only lasted during teenage years, and once we girls became women, the periods stopped and we would never have to wear pads or tampons again.
This REALLY happened to me: When I was about 6 years old, I rolled my hair up in my Mom's soft cotton rollers. When my Mom saw me, she took them off of me very quickly. I said, "Aren't these for your curling your hair?" My Mom said, "No, they're my sanitary napkins."
