When I was about 9 I got my first period, before I got the "talk" and I thought that I was dying!
When I was little I'd see my older sister's sanitary pads in our closet. I knew what they were for, but for some reason I thought you stuck the pad to your vagina. It never dawned on me that they adhered to your underwear! I thought "how that must hurt each time you pull one off and your pubic hair is stuck to it"!!!
I also thought that when you used tampons you had to take it out each time you used the toilet, and hated how many tampons I was using each month (quite expensive for a teen using them against her mother's will...). One day, having forgotten that I had my period, I went to pee and realized that I could pee right through the tampon. Eureka! I saved a lot of money from then on...
I didnt find out about periods untill I was TEN. My friends Mum explained it, not MY parents. Anyway after the talk, me and my friend went back to my house & she said to my Dad 'My Mums just told us about periods, where blood comes out instead of wee'
In my last year of primary school aged 11, I overheard my teacher talking about a girl in my class who had already started her periods.
I thought that you would be stuck on the loo for HOURS because loads of blood would come out for hours on end, and because of the talk with my friends Mum, I thought that you would be stuck on the toilet peeing blood for HOURS, so I was rather confused as to why that same girl who had already started hers, was in her chair doing work and not peeing blood oin the toilet until 3pm. lol
My mom one day had her period in the toilet and I asked, "What's that? Why is your pee red?" and she told me it was mommy juice and once I become a mommy I will get it too. I seriously believed that even when I knew what a period was. Then, when I was 9 I made the connection. LOL
one day in the car i was digging in my mom's purse when i found a tampon, (but i didnt know what it was.) so held it up to my mom's face and yelled, "are you smoking!!!"
When I very little, I used to believe that when women would have periods, they would have it at midnight at the same time, and it would disappear the next day. I also thought that every girl carried a calender with the day they get their period marked, and if you were pregnant the baby would make you lose the calender.
When I was in 5th grade I thought that the equivalent of a girl having her period for boys was when they got an erection
my friend's little sister (she's like, five or six) found a box of tampons and asked her older sister what they were. "you'll find out when you're older," she said. then she left the room, and when she got back, the little girl had taken them out of the wrapper and pressed them hard on the ground, flinging the tampon out of the applicator. "they're rocket ships!" she said.
i used to believe that when you got your period that it will last forever.i was afraid to put the tampones in to swim.
When I was around the age of 5-8 I used to think that a tampon was a kind of speacel tolet paper. One day, me, my brother and my mom were at the musem, and my mom got a tampon out of her backpack and went into the backroom. I was so mad because I thought that she was just being selfess and useing speacel tolet paper that took a long time to use.
I used to think that tampons, if left in too long, would start to absorb all the fluids in your body, and that Toxic Shock Syndrome was when you had dried out and needed to go to the hospital to be watered.
I was a weird kid.
When my mother first explained to me what periods were (after I asked her what tampons were for), I misunderstood, and for years, until about age 7 or 8, I thought women had their periods constantly, not just one week a month. I was so scared of growing up because I didn't want to bleed all the time! (Thankfully I didn't know about period cramps either, or my fear would have been much worse, haha).
My little sister is ony 3 and she like to follow everyone in the bathroom...especially me and my mom! One time my period was on and she asked what it was and i told her it was red dye number 4 and no everytime i go to the bathroom she always asks if i have red dye number 4 and if i need a diper(in her world thats a pad)XD
When I was little, I found a bag of used tampons at my aunt's under the toilet. I was shocked; as I thought they were illegal drugs she had been taking!!! I grabbed the bag and rushed into the main room, where most of my aunt, uncle, and family had gathered and poured them on the ground. I screamed, "AUNTIE!!! WHY ARE YOU TAKING DRUGS???"
I have never been so embarrased; nor do I believe I will be.
HA! I used to think when you got your period, you would just pee blood...I wish it was like that...if only.
I thought that your period came out all at once and you had to wear a pad around the time it would come.
Haha well when I was in elementary school, one day I went in the bathroom and found blood on and in the toilit (gross i know). Well after that I went back into my class, went up to the teacher and said
"I think someone died in the bathroom"
then she said " Where!?"
Then I showed her and she started laughing and said noo silly, a girl just had her period...
Then I went home and asked my mom.. I finally found out what it meant like 2 years ago.. =)
When I was just learning about periods and such, I thought that a girl got her period and just started bleeding a lot all at once, not that it happened over a period of days. I thought that girls would have to always wear pads in case they weren't in the bathroom at the time, and I thought it was a lot of blood because I would always see a lot of blood in the toilet (I know, gross). I was so scared to get my period because I didn't want to always have to wear a pad every day of my life waiting for it to come.
when i was 10 i knew what sex was (im a guy) and then i came here cause i was bored. then i saw the period page and a wondered "whats a period" so then i looked in a dictionary and it said "a woman's bleeding between her legs." i then thought on a certain day a girl would go to the doctor and the doctor would poke her vagina till it bleeds... ZOMG
i remember when i was about 9 and my puppy had her period, and i asked my mom "why is there blood all over the floor?" and she told me that ginger was losing teeth. then, at my thirteenth birthday, i asked my mom "can dogs get periods?" (i know random) and she told me "yes remeber when ginger had hers" and i screamed loud enough for everybody to hear, no lie, "ginger got her period? you told me she was losing teeth!" it is still i assume a humorous topic.
