Before knowing what a sanitary pad does, my sister used to believe that they were used to skate arourd at home!! We used to catch her skating around the house with them.

My mother told me about menstruation when I was 7 or so. Mindful that this was the same woman who had previously sold me a bill of goods about Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, I assumed that she was lying through her teeth.

I used to believe that when you had your period, urine came out (and not blood). then of course, i learned in sex-ed about the whole thing...it was kind of frightening.

at about age 9, a friend told me that each month - at the exact same time each month - women lay eggs which are then cleverly caught by Tampoons (cloths with a dip in the middle for the laid egg). I can vividly recall my horror and remained convinced of my imminant egg-layage for another 3 years.

A friend of mine thought that sanitary napkins were like adult diapers -- women would wear them if they didn't have time to stop working and use the bathroom.

When I was little I used to believe that Tampon applicators were made so girls could stand up and wee like boys!!! I still think it's quite a good idea...

I don't think I knew about periods at this time but I used to think that ladies had to wear pads every day and change them every time they went to the washroom.

I used to believe that women always had milk coming from their breasts and when they had a baby it drunk the milk, but when women didn’t have a baby they had to put cotton wool in their bras to absorb the milk. I thought this was called ‘having a period’, and these periods lasted until a woman had another baby. And a woman always had to wear a bra to put the cotton wool in to absorb the milk.
My mum told me that if I was naughty and refused to do a poo she would put soap up my bum, and I thought that that would make me poo.

When I used the loo at my mum's work cafeteria (I would be about 8-9)there was a notice in the ladies - 'please place all sanitary ware in the incinerator provided' which was outside the loos near the sinks. I came out with my litttle 'bag' of used toilet tissue and placed it into the burner. This must have amused the other ladies as they watched me, exchanging knowing looks at each other. I never caught on until I had been told about periods and then could have died with embarassment. For years after, if I smelt that awful burning smell only associated with those burners it would remind me of my innocence.

When my mum used to talk to my sister about her periods, she used to mention that she'll need clean towels every month.

I thought that a period used to be a monthly holiday!

An older lad told me and a mate what he had learned about periods during sex education classes, but explained the function as washing away eggs, this cracked me and my mate up who both thought he was trying to tell us our mums would lay eggs once a month

My Mum used to be a huge Gloria Estefan fan, she ended up being the ultimate woman in my head cos Mum loved her! So when Mum told me about periods and what happened, she said that every woman had them....to which I replied....'Even Gloria Estefan?!' To my dismay I've never lived it down :)

My little cousin was caught sticking panty liners all over the window. When my auntie found her it turned out that she saw an advert on tv talking about 'wings' and wanted to see them fly.

when i first got my period i thought it was only going to last for one day. On the third day i thought i was going to die, but i didn't tell anyone, so i tried to stay seated for as long as i could so i when i died it wouldn't hurt when i fell over.

I first got my period when I was in Singapore on holiday almost twenty years ago. My mother had warned us about not drinking from the taps for fear of getting a tummy bug, and had told me and my brother off serverely for buying and eating an ice cream from a street vendor... When my period came for the first time it was brown rather than red! Despite being informed on periods, with all the lectures on tummy infections I was sure that the brown discharge was due me dying...I was so worried that my mother would be angry at me I threw out my underwear for the rest of the trip - luckily we were on our way home in just two days!

When i was younger i thought that ,due to witnessing the absorbent tests on t.v , that sanitary towels were actually like in soles for your shoes to prevent sweating!!
it made sense until i asked my mum why she didn't wear these amazing products. The truth is embarrassing!!
