When I was young I thought your periods started when you had sex, and I also thought no one had sex before getting married.
I used to shudder as I imagined myself buying my first box of tampons after my honeymoon and wondered why women wanted sex at all if their periods started after!
When I was little I learned that if you ate too many beets, your pee would turn red. So I thought that when girls grew up, they would suddenly have a craving for beets (my mum loves beets) every month and lose bladder control.
I also though that pads were adult diapers, and tampons were for periods. I also thought you wear a tampon horizontally.
When i was little (about 7-8) I saw a lady get a tampon out of the tampon dispencer in the womands restroom. She put it in her purse and walked away.
A few minutes later I asked my mom for 25 cents so i could buy a lollipop. She was floored when i came back with a tampon in my hand asking for her to help me get the lolipop out of the applicator.
I used to think that when you got your period blue liquid would come out because in the commericial 'absorbancy tests' they'd pour blue liquid on the pads
when i was about nine i found my moms tampons in the cabinent and was very curious what they were. So i asked her and she said they were make up removers. so i one day my baby sitter put make up on me and automaticly after i went into the bathroom and began to profusely rub tampons on my face. of course my babysitter found me and was very confused.
When I was in ninth grade one of the boys in my group of friends happened to notice that there, what would seem perfectly logical to him, was a candy machine in the girls bathroom, seeing this as highly unfair I told him that if he gave me a quarter I would buy him one. He ended up opening it in class and embarrassing himself.
when i was about eight i found one of my moms tampons and i asked my dad what it was for and uncomfortably he told me it was for when you had a runy nose you stuck it up there.. everytime i would get a cold i would ask for a special runny nose tissue ! how embarassing !!
i used to believe that when u have ur period u culd decide not to wear a pad and the blood will not come out so i always thought when i have my period im not going to wear a pad, silly me!
I once saw blood in the toilet and i thought aliens were coming through the toilet killing people
When I was 11 years old, I thought that because my mom got her first period when she was 11 1/2 I would too. So on the EXACT day I turned 11 1/2 I celebrated and waited all day for my period to start. It didn't come until 2 1/2 years later. For some reason I thought it was going to be precise.
When I was younger I watched a television show where a girl got her period. I was watching with my older brother, so I asked him what a period was. He looked really uncomfortable and pretended like he didn't hear me. After a bit of thinking, I finally decided that a period was when a girl got boobs. Like, one day, all at once, a pair of boobs would just sprout up! And each month, around the same time, the boobs would grow just a little bit bigger until you were old and then they stopped growing and you didn't have your period anymore. I was very disappointed when I found out what a period really was years later.
I used to think that pads were for peeing, thats why my mother never went as regularly as me and my dad.
Some time after I started my period, I started carrying a pad in my purse. Some girls went through it during gym one day found it, and started telling people that I wasn't a virgin. They apparently thought that virgins didn't have a period.
i thought that my mom used to pee on her maxi pads
i went to my sister one day and said what happens why do you got pads in the bathroom? she said well thats when you get older you start getting hair and unusal places and you start getting your period so i said oh you get a dot on yourself? she said no thats when you bleed in a spot where you dont want to. i said well how come its called a period? she said you will know when you get older
I used to believe that the amount of blood excreted was a great deal more than it is in reality.
When I was little, I saw some commercials for tampons and it showed how they expand when they are inside the vagina....
well I thought that a tampon was a way to lose weight and that you had to swallow it and it expanded in your stomach to make you feel full so you would not have to eat!
My cousin got into my purse and found pads and asked if she could have one. I told her "stop! put those away! and stop playing around!" (I thought she knew what a period was shes 10) Then she asked "what is this any way? Is this sticker?" I later asked her if she knew what a period was and she said she thought it had to do with her armpits.
when i was 5 i thought menopause was when men pauses in life
One day while I was on the phone with my friend, we got on the topic of getting a physical. I annoyingly exclaimed how I HATED peeing in those stupid cups because it is so uncomfortable to have to hold it between your legs while you pee. She then grasps this real deep and serious tone and goes 'Do you want to know what I've always wondered? How do they know your not on your period? If you are, you can't pee, only blood will come out. Do they really want a cup of blood?'
