Soo…I started my first period recently. I know many people hate their periods, but my mom helped me see it in a different way. Periods are a true blessing, even though uncomfortable. After all, you can’t have babies without them! And it shows that you are a true woman. It also shows that you are responsible enough to keep yourself clean during your period. It shows that you are mature. So maybe they are uncomfortable and scary, but remember that periods are a blessing!

I got my First Period in May of 2009 when I was 11, now I’m 15. I got up & got dressed, I remember I was wearing purple capris with sneakers & a white shirt, I also had my hair pulled back. I remember I had to pee so I went to the bathroom, when I looked at my underwear they had pink stuff on it. I remember getting a little freaked out even though my mom had told me about periods. I got out & was like, “mom we gotta get me pads.” She was like, “pads? for what?” Then i said, “mom i have my period,” she started to cry i mean CRY! I was like ” -.- really mom really?” lol I stayed home from school that whole week cuz I go for a WEEK on my period.

Then my dad came home from work and she told him. My mom had told him in their bedroom, she came out and told me he was a little sad. He got sad cuz I’m the only daughter he has, I have 3 brothers. He knew that now I got my period I was already becoming a woman. Like most people say than pretty soon I’ll graduate, then go to college, then have a family of my own. I mean I kinda like my period & I’m glad I got it at 11 cuz some girls get it at 15.

So hi, I haven’t gotten my first period yet and I’m 12, but this is how I imagine it…

I’m at home just waking up at 7am like normal, and I go to the bathroom (as usual when I wake up) and I’m about to wipe myself, but I see some red ucky stuff on my panties. I already know about periods. So I start panicking because I think it is my FIRST PERIOD!!!!!! I get excited and get my panties off and quickly get to my room while my parents are asleep. I get new panties and a pantyliner. Put it on and get dressed for school.

When my mom wakes up I tell her and she says, “that’s brilliant,” and I stay home and after my dad goes to work at 8am me and my mom go to the shop and buy period supplies (like a lot, my mom overreacted) and she bought some sweets and drinks to celebrate my first period.

THE END.

This is how I imagine my first period. Hope you liked it 🙂

Hello, ok… so I started my first period when I was 12. It was in P.E and we were swimming. So I went to get changed and put my pants on and felt something wet,I thought it was just me and that I didn’t dry myself properly!!! So during break my pants felt really wet and I thought oh no!! I’ve wet my pants thinking what’s wrong with me??!?! I told my friends the I was going to the toilet and one if my friends said I’ll come with you I’ve been needing to go for ages. She was my best Friend she already told me that she started her period and I went to the toilet and found blood in my pants. I started to cry and my Friend ask me what was wrong I came out and told her do she have me one of her pads and said her you go and put this other one in your bag. I felt ok afterwards but I wouldn’t know how to tell my mom. So I went home that day and I was feeling and looking sad. My mom said are you ok? I rust into tears and told her everything!!! She then told me everything would be ok and she went to the shops to get me some pads and I was fine!

Ok, so it started on January 1st, 2013! I was very hyped the day before, very happy for the new year and i had recently moved in with my dad. And so when i woke up everything was normal, just a little brown spot and i didn’t think much of it. So anyway later that day my dad was at work and i had too pee and i wiped an BLAM there it was and it was SUPER akward living with dad and all. So i had to call him at work exxplain what happened and then had to ask him to buy me pads. But the pads didnt work i have a really heavy period so i had to use tampons witch r kinda gross anyway dad told me how to put it in and what it was like. Talk about akward.

I was going to class and had to go to the bathroom. So I went and found brown, wet, clumpy stuff in my panties. When I got home it was still there. So I put on a liner. I told my mom and she said that that was my period. Then it was scary but I got used to it. The only really bad part about it was it happens right before my first select volleyball practice. I had my first period when I was 11 and almost 12. ( 2 months till).

My first period happened in the eighth grade. Age 14. I was a late bloomer, I guess you could say. I was a gymnast, cheerleader, and ran track; very athletic. I never had the talk with my mother. So when it came, I had no idea what to do. I was wearing shorts and I seen red on my legs. So I went to the bathroom casually. And tons of blood gushed out. I wadded toilet paper up, and put it in my underwear. Eventually my mother found out by seeing a stained pair of underwear. Then she had the talk with me, kinda late. She has been helpful on my weeks. And I thank her for that 🙂

Ok, so my first period started on July 3rd of 2012! My family goes so Torch Lake with a bunch of family and friends for the 4th of July. I remember walking back to the house from the sand bar because i had to pee REALLY bad. So when i got to the house and went to the bathroom i saw blood gushing out of me!!!!! I was FREAKING out because i was only 11, and LOVED swimming and tubing in the lake. So i sat there and cried (nobody was home) and i would NOT use a tampon!!!!!! So then i rememberd i packed a pad ( just in case) so i just wore that and i was fine. Untill i had to take a shower……i only brang 1 pad, soooooo i was thinking stupid and put my used pad in a drawer untill i got out of the shower. So when i got out i wraped myself in my towel and thought if i went real quick to go grab my underware nobody would see my pad. And sure enough a older boy went in there and found my pad!!!!!!!!!!! He didnt think it was me so he went to the only other girls there, the moms!!!! When they knew it had to be me i burst into tears and all the girls were in the room with me!!!!!!!!! My mom got me more pads and i ended up not swimming for the reast of the time….. But now that i think of it , im not embarassed at all, its kinnda funny!!!!!!!!!

I started my period during a morning before school. I woke up to get dressed for school, went to the bathroom, and there was blood all over my clothes. So I hollered to my mom, luckily she had some thin panty liners. I wore them for the first time. The second time I switched to bigger ones. I did end up going to school. It was an awful day of school having to deal with it but the second time it was better. I got mine at the age of 12..Girls when you get yours for the 1st time, don’t be afraid.
