My niece always looked at me for advice. She was getting of age and we talked about menstrual stage. When her period finally started, she was at school and she called me to see what she should do. In that I couldn't break away from work, I simply told her to "put paper down there." She called me back several hours later and said that the paper was hurting her. I don't know if I asked her why or what, but her response was that the notebook paper was hurting her! I guess when I told her to put paper down there i was assuming she knew I meant toilet paper and not knowing at such a young age of 9 yrs old, she put notebook paper instead of toilet paper!

I was horrified when my first period arrived. It wasn't blue, like in the commercials for sanitary towels.

I was in middle school when I started my period. I came home from school and thought that I had pooed my pants. I told my mom about it and that is when she told me that I had started my period. I was and still am a Christian, so my response to my mom was that I thought the rapture would come befor my period came. I was disapointed and angry. I never wanted to have to start my period. Looking back on this, it is quite funny and up untill now this used to only be between my mom and I.

when I was about 13ish I was talking to a friend about periods and things and she commented how painful it was to change her sanitary towel, which confused me but after some explanation I realised that she was actually sticking the adhesive side to herself!!! ouch. I kindly told her the right way in doing it!

when i was really young, i used to believe that rhubarb came from women's periods.

(i was really young and remember hearing only whispered comments about women's periods and bleeding; therefore, when my great grandma would disappear outside and come back in w/a long, blood red thing and told us to eat it, i was horrified, thinking she had pulled it out of her vagina.)

i never did try rhubarb.

I used to believe that the blood that came out during a woman's period was the blood that would go in a baby's veins if she were pregnant. I sort of understood the connection between not having periods if you're pregnant, but as for the rest, I didn't have it exactly right.

In the 5th grade when we all watched the film about our periods, I decided that it was all too gross and I wasn't going to do it....so much for mind over matter

When I first got my period at 13, I didn't know anything about the female reproductive system. When I started passing clots of blood (pieces of uterine lining) with my period, I thought they were pieces of the baby that I would have had if I'd had sex. I'd look at it and try to figure out if it would have been an arm or a leg or something.

When I reached 15 I still did not have my period, all my friends did. I used to get frequent nose bleeds and thought that this was my period was coming out my nose.

Every month for three days my mom would sleep on the floor. She would not do any household work and rest. She also would not let anyone touch her. If we kids did touch her by mistake we would have to go take a bath. That used to be the custom in my society twenty years ago. As a kid when I asked her why we couldnot touch her,I was told that she had stepped on dog doo. Later I found out it was the period. And for a long time i thought women get periods when they step on dog doo.

When I was about 8, there were ads in magazines and on billboards,and they showed a girl sitting in a corner on a street, looking a bit sad for some reason. It said: "When you get your period ... (can't remember the rest). Because that girl was out on the street and looking sad, I believed that getting your period was the same as running away from home.

I used to believe my mom's sanitary towels were like diapers and wondered why she couldn't control her pee and I could.

When my oldest sister started learning about periods and how they worked. She had seen the films they used to show in class about the menstrul cycle and she stumped my mother with the question about, where do the egg shells go, after the egg had been released. hehe I still find this funny and tease her to this day asking if she'd found any eggshells yet when she has her period. hehe

When my younger sister first got her period, she thought that once she got it, she would always have it, and the bleeding wouldn't stop until she got pregnant

When I was around 6 years old, I was sitting in my mothers car while she was grocery shopping. I found a tampon on the floor that had fallen out of her purse and not knowing what it was, I unwrapped it. Upon seeing the "Tail" I thought I was in luck! A pet mouse! But it was a secret pet mouse! I had it for I don't know how long before I found it missing from my room. Boy..the wonders of make believe friends! lol

When I was young, I envisioned a period to be a red dot about a centimeter in diameter. I can't remember how, but I knew it was 'down there' somewhere. So when I heard of a girl having her period, I would visualize this red dot appearing there. I thought that once they got it, they just happened to have a red dot there, for no particular reason, but that it was a part of growing up.
