When i found out that your period was a new egg that needed to be expelled once a month, i imagined a large, squishy blob the size of a chicken egg, and i could understand why a woman couldnt just sit on the toilet and drop it in all at once. I was really disgusted when i found out that it had to leak out in small chucks, because i imagined a soft-boiled egg sort of deal
I remember hearing that you shouldn't go swimming in the ocean when you had your period or you would attract sharks.
Once when I was three my mom told me to set the table with napkins because our family was coming over for dinner. I had to go to the bathroom before I set the table. While I was in the loo I saw a package of my mom's pads. It said sanitary napkins so i piked up the box, went into the dining room, and set the table with my poor mother's pads! My family thought that was pretty funny...
when i started my period i screamed, bu tnobody was home, i thought i was internally bleeding or somthing.i called the hospital, and it was a man! i told him i was "internally bleeding, and it was coming out of my "pee pee" and he goes hoe old r u? i go 10 and he said, where is ur mom? i said not here. he said do u know what a period is? i said something that goes at the end of the sentence, he goes good news. u r not internally bleeding. when ur mom gets home, tell her. shell help u.
One day my mom had her period (I was about 5) and didn't want to flush and wake us up. Well, I went to use the toilet and started screaming. I thought someone was dying, I had never seen that much blood before. Needless to say (we lived in a duplex) our neighbors wern't happy at 2:00 in the morning.
when i was younger i found my mums period pads and thought they were special tissues so when my grandparents came over for dinner one night my mum said put the tissues out so i went to get the pads to put them on the table while my mum opened the door to my grandparents when they came in needless to say i was sent up to my room with no ice - cream!
When I was 7, I thought maxis were used for any type of bleeding. We lived on the east coast, so when Hurricane Hugo came around I made "Emergency Hurricane Kits" for myself and my two younger cousins. The next time they came over, I proudly presented them with their kits in front of my entire family. Everyone thought it was really cute and sweet, and oohed and ahhed over the mini flashlights and children's Tylenol I'd put into the kits... Until the boys pulled out the 5 maxis I'd stuck in each.
When i was really little, like two or three my mom would just leave the door open when she went to the bathroom, and sometimes i just be in there, it was no big deal, but one day my mom was putting somthing round in her body, which at the time i though was the end of the toilet paper roll(it was a tampon), and i asked her how come i couldn't do that, and she told me i could when i got older, so at dinner that night, i let my family know that when i got older i was going to put the cardboard at the end of the toilet paper roll in my body.
When I was about five I used to think tampons were dynamite n that my mom was some kind of secret angent stocking them away next to the toilet just in case.
I thought that when you bled at all, that was your period. So when I got a paper cut on a Saturday (I must have been about 4, now I am 16, while my only brother David had to be 10, now 22) I saw the trickle of blood and yelled "I HAD MY PERIOD!" Of course, my whole family came running. Among them was David. I also thought as soon as you menustrated you immediately had sex. So, I yelled " Now David and I gotta have sex!" And he yelped as I yanked his arm. My mom explained it all to me that night. I was amazed.
Back then pad samples from Always used to be sent out in the mail. When I was 11 years old, I got a hold of the pad samples and brought them to my older sister saying, "Look we got free slippers in the mail."
back in 6, my mother was once making pads for my cousin. Well, in those times, sanitary napkins weren't that popular...so, she was wrapping up cotton in a piece of cloth, when i spotted her doing so...i thought she was making pillows for my dolls. i felt so excited. i went over to her and excitedly said out loud, "Mama, this is so sweet of you! you're making pillows for my dolls...!!! i gave her a tight hug and joyfully went away playing wid it. While, my cousin and mother just laughed for my innocent thought.
thank god those days are gone and we have propewr sanitary napkins today! ;)
My friend Lauren was totally misinformed about periods. We were talking about puberty one day, and I told her about my friend who'd been on her period for a few years. Lauren was like, "What's wrong with her?" I was like, "Huh?" And she then proceeded to explain how girls only had their period for one year after they started. (Mind you, she was 10 at the time and already knew about sex and everything.) Anyhoo, I told her that no, girls had their periods until they were about 50-60. Lauren argued that her mom didn't have a period and she was only 35. Then, out of nowhere, Lauren's 16 year old brother (who had been listening to our conversation all that time) said, "Yeah, well, mom's had a few operations." An embarrassing way to find out, but at least Lauren now knows the truth before she starts her periods.
My kids seen my maxi pads and now they think I wear Pampers now they call me Pamper lady!!
When i was about 6-7 i played with these 'napkins' i found undernieth the sink in the bathroom. one day my mom found me playing with them and said "What ar you doing in the special napkins?" so then the next time we had a fancy dinner shehad asked me to set the table to i took out the 'Fancy' napkins. I never knew why i got in so much troble till i was a bout 9.
i also used to think that sanitary towels were put in your bra to catch milk that would randomly leak out of grown womens breasts. i based this belief on the fact that to this day im convinved i saw one poking out from a babysitters bra one time.....
When me and my sister were younger we use to beg mommy to show us what color her period was when she got it. We thought that it was a different color every month. Mommy didn't want to explain the "proces" so she would color a pad different color every month. She would even let us keep it. It was later on that we found out the truth and were deeply upset at mommy for lyeing to us and threw away are pad collection.
When I was wee, my little brother told me that girls get one period and they bleed until they die and the only way not to die was to stop the period by having a baby. Then the baby would suck all your milk out until you died that way. I decided pretty soon after that that I'd prefer to be a boy, but after finding out about wet dreams and how they were your insides leaking out through your wee-wee until you were all wrinkled out like a dried prune I quickly changed my mind back again.
When I was a kid I had a napkin collection - napkins I saved from parties, holidays, etc. One day my mom and I were standing in a line of women waiting to use the restroom, when I noticed a machine on the wall that said "feminine napkins". I asked my mom for a quarter to get one for my collection, because I thought they were some kind of special bathroom napkins. I couldn't understand why my mom looked mortified and said No, or why the other women in line turned around and looked at me with little smiles on their faces.
This isnt about my belief but my friend's little sister. When I was in 9th grade I was staying over at my friends. Her 8 year old sister, being as nosy as she is decided to go though my over-night bag and she came across a pad and asked me what it was. Since my friend wasn't in the room to explain it to her and I tend to be shy around that kinda stuff, I simply told her it was a napkin. Of course she knew what a napkin looked like so she didn't believe me so I told her it was a special napkin and I took it away from her.
Later that week my friend came to school and asked me why I told her that. I didn't know why she found out or why she would even care but she said that the night before her first real boyfriend had come over for dinner to meet her family. Her little sister then mysteriously disappeared into the bathroom and brought out a napkin and gave it to her boyfriend saying that "They were special napkins and since he was the guest he should get one." Her mom was then forced to tell her about periods while her boyfriend was there. I found it pretty funny but she said she was so embarassed. We laugh about it now though.
