This is actually an ex-boyfriend from high school's belief. I finally set him straight. Whenever I was upset he would ask me if it was "the first of the month" and I never understood. Then I realized that he thought girls only got their periods during the "first of the month." Odd thing, he would ask me not only at the first of the month but all month long.

I used to believe that a period was a girl peeing blood, it wasn't until I was camping and playing with this boy and I told him that and his older sister overheard me she pulled me aside and explained what it really was I was really embarressed.

When I was little I thought tampons were just rolled up pads and you would use it by taking it out of the applicator and unroll it. It wasn't until I watched a video in 5th grade explaining about periods and pads and tampons that I understood what it was.

My brother was the only boy with 4 sisters, and somehow got the idea that girls all get their period at the same time, and it lasts for a month (the term monthly?). He was in high school before a friend set him straight.

Well, here is the story. Very funny, not to me or Mary.

Okay, I was 11 at the time, my friend Mary was 24. We were out camping. So, we were riding around on the ATV, when she had to go to the bathroom. Suddenly, well, here is the conversation.

Her: Okay, Lexi, I have to go to the bathroom! Back in a second!

Me: Okay. Don't take too long-I'll ditch you!

Her: (In the bathroom) (Suddenly) OH SH*T SH*T SH*T SH*T!!!!!
(This repeated for a while)

Me: Sara- you okay?????????

Sara: SH*T! I just got my period!!!

Me: (I thought she said FORgot, not GOT) What? I thought you said you had to go to the bathroom! You didn't say you were writing a story!!!!! Geez, I was waiting forever-and here you are, writing a story.

...

Figure it out. She still reminds me of that day. Every waking moment. And then I tell her at least I haven't gotten my period yet! Then we burst out laughing.

When I was an innocent 9 year old, my mum gave me a book on pubety and sex. It disturbed me greatly that I was going to start laying eggs (like a chicken in my mind) when I reached about 11 years old!

This isn't really my belief...

When I was 15, I had my first "serious" boyfriend [still serious 4 years later]. One day, we were talking on the phone, and I was complaining about my period [as always.] I think I used the word "heavy" to describe it about 8 times before he said "I don't see what the big deal is, it's just a little dot." And I said, "what?" To which he responded on the sanitary pad commercials, they only poured a little dot of water on the pad to show how well it worked, and he had therefore assumed that that was what a period was like for a girl.

I asked him if he thought it was blue, too.

The first time I asked my mother what a period was she said it was when a girl pees blood. Because I hadn't yet started having periods I was worried that my pee was pee instead of blood!

Before I knew what getting your period was exactly, i knew that it had to do with eggs. So every time I would go to the bathroom, I would check the toilet to see if I had laid an egg...

I used believe that when you had your period the blood would come out of your vagina, and your nipples. So i thought the purpose of the bra was to keep the blood from leeking out of that area.

I used to believe the blood came all at once - didn't understand why you could just sit on the toilet while it came out!

when OB Tampons first came out and they advertised that there was no aplicator i was so confused because for some reason i thought the aplicator was the string. so i asked my mom how they were supposed to get the tampon out after they put it in.

When I was little I would go through my mother's purse and find tampons. I always thought they were some sort of candy, and I would get mad when she wouldn't share any with me! (x_x)!!

I used to believe that when you had your period you would bleed out of a hole in your skin, kind of at the bottom of your tummy. I thought when it happened to me i would just use a band-aid to stop the bleeding. my friend told me it happened in year 4 so I dreaded year 4 for many years. I also thought it only ever happened once. (if only it were true.) I soon figured out it happened every month but still thought it was a one day event so when I got my period for the first time that night I didn't use a pad because I thought it was all over. I had a rude awakening.
