I used to believe that a menstral cycle was a cycle in the washing maching. (my sister told me that)
I had never been told about periods. So when i started I had no idea what it was, and I was scared.. I was putting
toilet paper in my underpants.. after a couple days it was from a darkish color to a redish. Once I realized it was
blood I thought I was bleeding to death. I was scared and
didnt want to tell my mom I was going to die! Well after a few days it was worse and I didnt FEEL sick... so I told
her there was blood in my pants.. she shoved me in the
bathroom with a sanitary pad and a sanitart belt (showing my age here) I had no idea what they were
or for.... but I figured it out.. and I didnt know all girls did this, it was never explained to me. I was only 12.. I guess in a few years I learned. It still makes me shake my head.
When i was about 13 years old I was having a girly chat with my friend about periods and stuff. Then this boy in our class came over and asked us what we were talking about. At first we just giggled and said 'girl talk nothing for you to worry about' and he said 'what like periods?' and we said 'yeah'. Then he started asking about what it was like to have a period and we said stuff like 'trust me you don't wanna know' and 'it's really painful' Then after a while he said 'so do you just sit on the toilet for ages and let it all come out?' and me and my friend were like 'what?' He thought that you went to the toilet and it all came out in one go! he was shocked when we told him that periods last for about a week and every time you go to the toilet blood comes out!
my brother believes that pads are miniature diapers.he is 11.
i used to believe your period was a shot grown-ups got and it makes you pee blood.i learned the truth when i was about 10,in fourth grade heath.
My mother didn't personally explain the "facts of life" to me, I think -- I was given a book that I was free to read whenever I got curious. I got a lot of accurate info this way, except for one little thing. I believed that men had an equivelant to the women's "time of the month."
It was only fair, after all!
when i was young (in about 1st or 2nd grade) i used to think that girls bled out of their nipples because i heard one of my older friends talking about bleeding.
As a little girl, I thought only SOME girls would get their period. So, naturally, I thought it would never happen to me... Then came my huge surprise at nine years old, went I noticed blood in my panties... I ran out of the bathroom crying and screaming for my mom, I couldn't believe it had actually happened to me. I still cried for the next few months before I finally understood and realized that ALL girls had periods, and not just a few unlucky ones...
I used to believe that tampons were used to get rid of spots(?)
When I was about 10 my sister got her period and I was sad because I thought getting your period meant you were a woman and I wanted to be a woman already. I actually started crying because I was the only one in the house who didn't have hers!
When i first got my period, i didnt know what it was cuz it didnt look like blood. i thought i had pooped my pants until the thought came to me that it was my period.
One time I was having a sleepover.I invited ALL my
friends! At night, when everyone was in bed, i went
to the toilet. What i didn't know was that my friend
Becky, went to the toilet before me! When i saw
blood, EVERYWHERE, i screamed! I woke the
WHOLE house! I thought it was me who was bleeding, not Becky! When i'd realised, you can
definitely say i was embarassed! My mum even said that i had ruined her beauty sleep! Next time i
have a sleepover, i'm not going to panic, when i see
When I first got my period I thought I was dying.
I started crying I'm like "Mommy I have cancer!" and she's like "what?" I told her i saw blood in my pants and she just started laughing. Don't think I'm a Dee Dee Dee or anything I was ten I wish someone could have told me earlier.
I used to believe that every woman had a period one time only, when she was exactly 20, and it was peeing out blood.
I was about 8 years, and I heard some friends talking about the period. I asked what it was, and the answer was:
"You bleed in your bottom. Only girls can get it"
I was like:
"Cool! I'm looking forward to get the peroid!" I thought we girls only got the peroid once in a life. And then: Finish with it.
I'm not that stupid now.
I believed that periods were one-time spurts of blood. After I got mine and saw that I was still bleeding later, I assumed I must have hurt myself somehow and didn't tell my mom.
(I wish they only lasted for that one second...)
Condoms are something men use when they are having their period.
I used to think that a period was the pubic hair.
When I was young, I thought that once a woman got her period, she bled constantly for the rest of her life. I didn't understand why the puberty books contained guidance on how to determine whn your period ends. I was really scared.
When I was 9 I had a friend who got her period. We were both facinated. I asked my cousin (whos a 10 year old boy) what it was, he said it was when a girl was about to die because a period means the end. He said, "All girls get it. Some earlier than others." I took a class about it and I learned what it really was. I will not let him get over it!
