The day before I got my period I noticed a small brown stain in my pantyliner. I shrugged it off thinking it was probably just the light playing tricks on my eyes.
The next day I was talking to my friends about periods and I felt squirmish as my undies felt more wet than usual. After the end of the period I went to the bathroom thinking it was just extra discharge. Then I saw the brown streak and flipped. It was a rusty brown red color and it covered my entire crotch. I stared at it for like 5 minutes and my friend came in to check in on me. She found out laughed and handed me a pad.
My mom picked me up early that day and I stayed home for 5 days. Weirdly, my first period only lasted for like 2 days. So not too dramatic I guess. Great thing is that I don’t get cramps I just get moody and hungry around that time of the month.
So good luck to all those girls who just got it and are reading this for advice. I don’t enjoy my period but now my family treats me with a newfound respect so yea.
