my cousin found a sanitary pad of my aunts. When she asked what they were my ant explained that they were 'ladies things'. So the next day my aunt hears my cousin shouting "Mum I'v got a ladies thing stuck to the back of my neck". It was a plaster. She obviously thought that the pads were plasters.

When I was prepubescent, I found a sanitary napkin (not soiled) face up in our bathroom wastepaperbasket. I have four older sisters. One of them told me it was an insert you put in your shoe to make it padded and therefore, more comfortable.

I used to believe, when I found out, that once a woman started menstruating they would menstuate each and every day for the rest of their lives and never stop. I was worried for ages about it, and the prospect that I once I begun, I would never be able to go swimming again.

One day, I had my friend from school over. We were about 7, I think. We were playing dolls in my room when out of the blue, she asked me: "Have you had your period yet?"

Being the somewhat bodily uneducated child that I was, I said "What's that?"

She answered "I think it's where girls bleed every once in a while."

The conversation went as following:

Me: "Oh, I've never heard of that."

Her: "Me neither. I just heard about it today."

Me: "Maybe not every girl has one."

Her: "Yeah, I think you're right."

We went on playing.

I know better know. XD

I used to think that pads were adult diapers in case you had to go to the washroom during long meetings at work. The commercials always showed business women.

When I first got my period, my friend and I were talking about this new experience. We thought that you were fertile during your period, and only then. We wondered, "Why would anybody ever want to have sex? Wouldn't it be messy? What man would ever like that?"

My male friend believed, until about 2 months ago, that you would insert a tampon, then pull the string so it opened up like an umbrella inside you. I suppose it is kind of logical in a way, but it didn't stop everyone laughing for about 10 minutes! We still tease him now......

One day as my daughter, 3 years old, and I were shopping, we ended up on the "feminine hygiene" isle. As we passed the sanitary napkins, my daughter blurted, "Look at those BIG band-aids, mom!" It was so cute I had to laugh!!

My mom told me that pads were for when women laughed too hard and wet their pants. I then took one and tried to put it on just in case.

When I was younger, maybe six or seven, a group of my friends and I did tennis together. We were putting on our tennis skirts in the locker room when someone noticed two little baskets, one for tampons and one for pads. We noticed the sticky on the pads and we stuck them in our shirt sleeves, to make "grown up shoulders." We also stuck them on our stomachs and legs. Finally, we put one on our panties. We thought they were stickies that helped you not get hurt. We were going to go out to tennis (with the stickies on)when my friend got stuck in a locker! (do not ask me how this happened) and we had to call the male tennis coach to help her out, adding to the embarrassment.

One day I asked my mum what tampons were for. She told me that it was to catch a seed that ladies produced once a month. I thought that at 'that time of the month' you had to stand there holding the tampon, waiting for the seed to pop out and catch it!

my mom told me i would know when i got my period because there would be blood. So I actually had been having my period for about three months and didn't know it because i thought my pee would turn red. I went to the doctor that month because i kept getting a bellyache. He told me i was having my period, and i told him no because my pee was still yellow!

When I was younger, for some reason I believed pads were to cut vaginas and thats why there was always blood on the pad. I thought women needed their vaginas cut so they could stay healthy and so they used pads to 'cut' their vaginas. I was horrified, and I remember my cousin getting her mother's pads and saying, "Someday we're gonna have to use these."
I'd always ask my mother if it hurt. She would respond, "Sometimes," so that added on to that belief.
Come on, people, I was like, 5 years old!! :-P

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.

I used to belive that sanitary napkins are used by girls coz they have no control over their pee.....

I used to think that women couldn't control the flow of their periods only because they never tried. I was convinced that when I got my periods I would 'hold in' the blood until I peed, then I wouldn't have to worry about spots or leaks or any of that. I still wish it could work that way :)
