i used to think that you pull the string on a tampon and it would roll out to make a sanitary towel
This belief belongs to my mom's brother. My mom, her sisters, and my grandma used to send him to the store to buy maxi pads. He thought they were to hold your girdle in place. When he found out what they were really for, he never bought them again.
When i was little, i used to think that women would wear pads for when they pooped their pants. So one day, when my mom was changing her pad while i was in the bathroom, i said "haha mommy! u pooped your pants!"
I used to think my mum's tampons were 'Torpeados' I deeply disapointed when I tried to sink a toy submarine in the bath!!!
All during elementary school, I was something of a problem child and ended up in the principal's office at least twice a week. Naturally, every time that happened I would get bored and look around for something interesting to read. One time, I found a flyer aimed at the 6th grade girls about getting your period. I read it front to back and was horrified. I thought it was talking about some fatal disease that all girls get when they grew up. It gave me horrible nightmares about growing up and susequently bleeding to death.
When I was about 8 or 9 I thought that you would get your period once, and then you could have a baby, and when you're body was too mature for a baby you would have another to let you know that you could no longer have children. I wish it was that way!
When I was extremely little I saw my mother once changing her sanitary towel and I thought it was a special piece of pre-wrapped paper for women to wipe their bottoms on. I was a very femeinist jid, you see. So after htat I started wiping my botton with her towels and she started wondering where they all went. Iím thirteen now and I realise how wasteful I was.
My male friend believed, until about 2 months ago, that you would insert a tampon, then pull the string so it opened up like an umbrella inside you. I suppose it is kind of logical in a way, but it didn't stop everyone laughing for about 10 minutes! We still tease him now......
i also used to think that sanitary towels were put in your bra to catch milk that would randomly leak out of grown womens breasts. i based this belief on the fact that to this day im convinved i saw one poking out from a babysitters bra one time.....
when i was about 5 or 6, a friend and i used to draw litle faces and ears on tampons and pretend they were mice. I could never understand why her mum wouldnt let me take my little rodents friends home with me, and was filled with disgust when my friend whispered that it was because after i left, her mum was goin to "stick them up her minge.."
in ninth grade, on of my guy friends told me he had a tampon in his back pack and that judging by what a *itch i was being i probably needed it. i had to explain to him that pms stands for pre menstral syndrome and that you get it before your period.
when i was 10 i started my period on the 3rd of December... then i got it again on the 30 of december so i called my mom crying b/c i thought i was gonna die b/c i had my period twice in one month... haha cracks me up!
When I was a little kid, i found my moms pads in her bathroom and for a very long time, I figured that they were to catch the pee that got stuck in your pubic hair. . . . . I was about 8
My friend noticed, when watching her mum come out of the bath one night that there was a white string dangling between her legs. When she asked her mum what it was, her mum answered that she had a mouse living in her tummy...for years my friend believed this and told everyone about the mouse...!
When i was about in 4th grade i finally got to talk to the "popular girl" (i later found out that she was a complete idiot) we were discussing getting boobs and stuff like then when she told me about the "period" she said that when you got your "period" that you would bleed out of your butt, your vagina, and your ear. but she said that you only got your period in the 5th grade, i recall looking over at the "5th grade table" at lunch that day, thinking that all of those girls over there dont have ear plugs on. what an idiot she was, i soon found out that thats not the way it happens, stupdid popular girl!!!!!!
At the age of around six I overhead my mother talking to an older cousin about periods. I could tell this was grown up business from the hushed tones they spoke in. I asked what was a period, and was told rather mystically (or so I remember) that I would know I had grown up when I got an egg with blood in it.
This entirely changed the context of boiled/poached/fried eggs for me. I would become alarmed as soon as I saw one on my dinner plate, and hack it to bits for fear it might contain the blood of my transition to womanhood.
A few years later, classroom gossip revealed that, in fact, I would require pads to cover my nipples from which blood would squirt ferociously during this perplexing and scary monthly occurence.
And they say childhood is the best time of your life.
I was about 9 years old when I was told about your period and my sister would always tell me that I would die if I never got my period. Everyday I would check if I had my period. I got so scared cause I never got it for awhile that I was going to die LOL When I was 11 when I first got it and I was soo relived I got it cause I didnot want to die!
I got so freaked out!!that stuff was suposed to be blue,like on the comercials,not red!!!!!!!!!!!!
I found some of my mom's spare maxi-pads (the old-school, enormous ones, big as hot dog buns) and assumed they were gigantic Band-Aids. I was puzzled by them for the longest time, mainly because I figured that if you wounded yourself badly enough to require a bandage that big, a trip to the emergency room would make more sense...
My brother once asked my mum 'where the white mouse goes'.
