When I was a kid, I used to think that a girl's period was her nipple because a nipple looked like a period!

We were all watching family television, and a comercial came on for maxi pads. My brother about 10, asked my mom what maxi pads were used for. My mom asked him, "What do you think they are used for?" He said, I think you tape them under your arms for extra odor protection. We all rolled in laughter.

When I was younger, I used to think that if I touched one of my mums sanitary towels (the one's without wrappers)then it would make her ill. I used to think that somehow, sanitary towels had to be completely sterile before you could use them!

I came in from a date one night to find my 12 year old sister in the bathroom. After telling her several times I needed to use the toilet, she told me she had started bleeding. Thinking Mom had told her already about menstruation, I told her she had gotten her period and supplies were in the cabinet. She still didn't come out and I asked her what was taking so long. She said she would be out when it stopped!

While riding home from grocery shopping in the back seat of the car, I gfot bored and pick up a box of tampons from one of the bags and read the outside of the box. I saw the word "menstruation" - figured it was something like "men's - ture - ation" and had something to do with men. I woudl be becoming one in a few years so I asked by parents what I was in for. They told me after we got home. I was relieved to find out that I wouldn't have to worry about it. But I felt so very bad for girls who would have to undergo that for every month for most of their lives.

How come it's not "womenstruation"?

At the age of 35, my aunt used to take her tampon off every time she needed to pee, because she believed evrything came out of the same place. My mom told me that she had casually referred to this in the hospital, after she delivered her second child. My grandfather, who is a doctor, was terribly embarassed.

When I was growing up until I learned the facts of life at about age 12 I believed that women had their periods by sweating blood out of their butts. Don't ask!

Up until the sixth grade I thought tampons were a form of birth control. My teacher laughed at the idea, explaining that if you tried that, it wouldn't leave any room for the penis. In hindsight, I guess you could give me partial credit.

I had this crazy idea that when a woman had her period for the first time she walked a certain way. So I would see like 35 year old women and think "Nah, she doesn't have her period yet, she's not walking right".

After being shuffled in and out of the movie room for the much anticipated sex education film, I couldn't figure out why the danger of pregnancy was discussed so severely. If you couldn't become pregnant unless you started your period then why not just have sex when you were not menstruating?? My goodness, what was so hard about that?

I used to think that the "napkins" in the dispenser in the ladies restroom were actually napkins to dry your hands on. I was in the restroom once with a friend and we had washed our hands and were trying to decide if we wanted to use the paper towels or the special "napkins". I thought they must be pretty special if you had to pay for them.

When I was young, I used to think that "sanitary napkins" were just "really clean" napkins. Once, in an airplane, I came back from the toilet with one of these, prepared to use it while I ate the in-flight meal. My mother, looking horrified, gasped and snatched it from my hands, never explaining exactly what it was for. After that thought it was something quite unsanitary indeed - but what?

When I was about 5, I was peeling the skin off of my mom's back ( she had a bad sunburn ) She was wearing a strapless bra at the time, but it really confused me from looking at it from the back ( because it didn't look like her regular bras ) So I asked her "what it was"...and she said "Guess?" and I thought for a minute and said "A tampon?"
She went into minor shock for a moment and quickly changed the subject. I, of course, had no clue whatsoever.

My boyfriend ( at a young age ) thought that when a girl has an orgasm, that she bleeds. He somehow thought a girl's menstrual cycle and her orgasm were linked. Which made him also think that when a girl gets her period, it was supposedly a very sexual thing as well.

I used to believe that maxi-pads were some kind of birth control. I remember pretending to understand when my female cousin told me that my grandma didn't need maxi-pads. I figured it was because she lived alone.
