When I was in grade 5 a friend of mine had overheard the boys discussing what colour girls period blood was. They concluded that it was black since boys sprem was white and of course boys and girls are opposites!
my friend's sister believed that menstrual blood was blue - because that is how it is portrayed on commercials for pads. when she had her first period, she screamed and freaked out because it was BLOOD!
when i first got my period at age 12, i told my younger (fifth grade) friend all about it. i told her about cramps and stuff, and how unpleasant they were. "juliet," she went," you are SUCH an idiot! u can stop it anytime u want by cutting ur finger!" I was like,"?" and she said,"yeah! u can't bleed in 2 places at once!"
she is such a moron. now i'm 14 and she's 11, about 2 be 12. i hope that when she gets hers i don't see bandaids all over her fingers.
When I was little I believed that periods were contagious and the next person that went in the toilet would get it
I used to believe (until my teens) that older women couldn't control their bladders. Thus, pads and such absorded all the pee they leaked. I never understood why it was such a good thing to start your period.
When my younger sister first got her period, she thought that once she got it, she would always have it, and the bleeding wouldn't stop until she got pregnant
My mother always told me that somewhere between 10 and 12 years old, I would go through a 'change'. I know what she meant now, but when I was 6 or 7, I was convinced that she meant I would 'change' from a girl to a boy. I was so worried about all my 'girl' toys...what would happen to them??? What about clothes? I didn't have any 'boy' clothes! What would I do??? When I finally got old enough, and I did go through the 'change', I was so relieved!!!!!
when i was about 4 or 5 my mum had a new boyfriend over. i was playing around in he washroom for some unknown reason and found her maxi pads. i walked out with it stuck to my chin like a beard "what is this mum?" i asked. needless to say her new boyfriend didn't last :)
When I was little, all I wanted to do was be like my mom. One day we were at CVS and my 20 year-old cousin was working at the counter. My mom told her " I got my end of the sentence today." I thought this was the greatest thing ever! We were learning about what comes at the end of a sentence in school. A period! So about a week later I went in to CVS and while my mom was picking up medicine, I went over to a person working at the counter(not my cousin)and proudly told him that I got my period today. Remember, I was about 6.
One day, I happened to see my mom in the bathroom, pulling out a tampon. At that age, I was not even aware that I had a vagina and I thought she was pulling it out of her anus, so I screamed "Mom, what did you just pull out of your butthole?!"
Before they gave us the sex ed talk in school - you remember, don't you? You went to a seperate room from the boys, they showed you a little movie, gave you free tampons and pads? Yea. That talk.
Anyways, before then, i thought that women got their periods in their breasts. I thought that the tv ads with women in towls and always grasping at their chest when they got out (you know, the dainty 'who me' look that one commercial had).. yea. i was a sheltered kid. A weird one too.
One time I was at a Target with my friend. When we got back I saw my little brother with a tampn stuck up his nose! my mom stuck it up there because he got a bloody nose, and now he thinks that tampons are for bloody noses!
I used to think that if you sneezed while wearing a tampon it would shoot out like a rocket.
When I was younger in primary school, we walked into the classroom and saw a tampon, only it had been pulled out. A friend screamed "IT'S A MOUSE! GET IT OUT!!" Our teacher stormed into the classroom and demanded to know what the fuss was about. We were all on our chairs by then exept a few boys who were stroking this `mouse`. Until year 6 I believed that tampons were mice.
This is more my mom's than mine. Once her mother asked her to go to the store to buy napkins, and she went to the back of the store and picked up sanitary pads (this was before she knew what a period was, and it wasn't talked about much). The cashier asked her if she wanted a bag and she was confused as to why. So she walked all the way home with a package of pads, and her mom sent her back to the store, and the cashier just laughed.
She's embarrassed about it to this day.
Just before I hit puberty we had a talk at school about periods and they gave us free sanitary pads. I took them home and my mum asked me if I knew how to use them and I said of course I do. You take two and put them on either leg...I obviously hadn't understood what they were saying in the talk.
When i was about 4, i found tampons in my mums bag, and i thought they were cool cotton straws she had bought for me. Later on when i went to the toilet, i saw a used tampon floating in the toilet. I ran out of the bathroom and screamed 'MUM!! STOP PUTTING TOMATO SAUCE ON MY STRAWS!!!!'
When i was in 7th grade a couple of boys thought that you could just hold your blood when you were menstruating until you got to the bathroom and just pee it out! HA!
two of my younger friends, (who were both guys) thought that a tampon was used when a girl was pregnant and she wanted to hold the baby in.
when i was like 13 and my little brother was 4 years old, he started to ask about period and what it means.i explained all about it and added a little something... that he would also have period and bleed through his #%$!!! days after i caught him putting one of my absorbants on his shorts very carefully :))).it took about a year to get that idea out of his head: i know...i was a sick little girl
