My best guy friend is kind of nerdy. I noticed he started to act really weird around me on the 15th of every month. He would buy me ice cream at lunch and stuff, and also he would act weird around all our female teachers. One day he whispered to me, "I know my english teacher has her period today, so I'm just gonna shut up in that class." I replied, "WHAT? How did you know that?" He blushed and said sorry. That same day at lunch, I ate pizza, which I never eat, and he said, "Katie, you never eat pizza. Is that because of your...*looks right and left* period?" I was like, "What? I don't have that TODAY!" Well, it turned out he thought all girls got their periods beginning on the 15th of every month.

In 1st grade I found a pad in our bathroom and, very confused, asked my mom what it was. She sat me down for the long, detailed "your body and puberty" talk, in which she told me all about what would happen on my "special day".
Unfortunately, she wasn't very clear. For YEARS afterward I was convinced that 'Period Day' was a secret holiday every month that every woman would get her period. There'd be balloons and cake and presents, and everyone would have a grand time. We would even get the day off of school!
Needless to say, I was horribly disappointed later when I found out that the only presents I'd be getting would be gross panties, headaches and cramps.
Some holiday that turned out to be.

Once when I was little, I found some feminine panty liners in my mom's bathroom. I thought they were big fuzzy stickers, so I took some and put them all over my notebook to make it look pretty. My mom was horrified when she saw my notebook and made me pull them all off. I didn't know why she didn't think it was pretty like I did.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

My 4-year old daughter followed me to the bathroom one day. I happened to be on my monthly cycle and she when she noticed my pad, she asked me if that was a band-aid for my 'boomies'. To avoid having to explain things to her, I said yea. Later on, I went into her room to see what why she was so quiet, my bag of maxi pads were all opened and sticking to all her baby dolls. She said they all fell off the bed and needed boomie band-aids. I cant remember when I laughed that hard.

I'm 8 years older than my little male cousin and he needed to use the bathroom when we were out somewhere. I took him in the women's bathroom as he was young and told him to wash his hands. When he went to grab a paper towel he saw a machine that said "NAPKINS-25 CENTS". He said,"why would someone pay 25 cents for a napkin when they can get these for free?" I said, "I don't know, those are for fancy people I guess."

Now, being the youngest of 9, I have 4 older brothers and 4 older sisters. Naturally, my older sisters experienced their periods before I did. I once wandered into the bathroom to discover my older sister changing a pad. No one had explained to me anything concerning periods before (I was 6) and so I was naturally terrified and she was just angry that I hadn't knocked. I ran to my room crying.

Of course, my parents weren't home to explain anything to me at the moment, so when another of my older sisters and my older brother found me sobbing both about being screamed at by my sister and about the blood, they decided to have a little chuckle. They told me that girls die younger than boys because when they turn a certain age they begin to bleed out and by the time you're 50, you lose all your blood. I asked about grandma and they told me she wasn't 50 yet, but she would be soon.

I also knew that my mother was 49 years old and that the next number was 50. I don't know why it didn't occur to me that my grandmother HAD to be older than 50 for that reason, but I literally cried for about 2 hours before my oldest sister mercifully told me the truth about life and periods. I nonetheless clinged to my Mother for days believing that she would die in the next year.

To this day I sort of hate my brother and sister for that one.

When I was about 10 mum gave me some roasted beetroot for lunch one day & loved it & ended up eating a big bowlful.

The next day I went to the toilet & when I wiped it was deep deep red. I thought I had my first period! I told my mum who gave me sanitary napkins & for months I couldn't understand why I hadn't ever had another period.

until I ate beetroot again & the penny dropped!

I used to believe that the "feminine product" machines in the public bathrooms contained tootsie rolls and gum. So I always used to ask my mom for a quarter so I could get a tootsie roll... not knowing that it was really a tampon.
