First Period Stories

Growing up, I learned a lot of information from my sister, Sarah. She paved the way for me and that made me feel more at ease about all the changes I was going through.

 

I remember hearing my sisters first period stories. I was probably in third or fourth grade. For some reason, I already knew what a period was; the knowledge was just already there. I was always surrounded by women (my aunts, my cousins, my sister, my mom) so I guess before it happened to my sister, it must have been something we discussed casually. My mom yelled at her because she thought that my sister spilled make-up all over her white shorts. Little did she know it was not make-up!

 

I dont clearly remember getting my first period. My mom didnt prepare me, but I dont think I necessarily needed preparation because I had already witnessed my sister going through it. I do recall that I was in sixth grade, and it happened in May. I was pretty ready for it to come. I remember talking to my friends about it, hoping to become "grown up" soon. When it happened, I told my mom, sister, and grandma. Then I told some friends, and soon enough, everyone knew. I didnt really care about them knowing. I wasnt ashamed.

 

My mom told me to wear pads until I felt comfortable enough to use tampons. That lasted one month. In June, I had a dance recital, and I couldnt wear underwear; I had to try using tampons. I read the instructions in my bathroom, tried all of the different positions, and finally got it in. But I realized something was not right. I asked my sister if I was supposed to keep the entire tampon inside of me. She told me to only use the cotton part; the other part was the applicator, used to help with insertion. I took it out and tried again. This time it was more comfortable and eventually I got the hang of it.

 

 

After getting my period, I felt older because I had been told that getting your period is a sign of maturing; I was growing up. Getting my period was not exactly what I thought it would be. I had to learn to deal with it, and I have. Looking back, one thing about getting your period that I do admire is that it is a bridge from adolescence to womanhood, and that is vital to many young girls while growing up.

My story is a little normal but weird. I woke up on march 12 and saw a big brown spot on my undies. I thought I pooped my pants. I went to school and after third period, I felt really wet. I went to the bathroom to see a lot of brown on my underwear. I thought I just needed to go to the bathroom. I wiped myself and saw a bunch of dark blood. I totally freaked. I thought I broke something in my butt that made it that my poop flowed without me wanting it to and that was why there was blood everywhere. It then occurred to me that that theory was stupid and I just had my period a month and two days before my 13th birthday. And I didn't bring pads. When I got home, I told my mom. I almost started crying. I took a shower and my bought me a box of light pads and heavy ones. I was so prepared and knew everything I thought I could about my period (accept how old I would be when I got it cause I'm adopted), but it still majorly took me by surprise.

@GirlyCBA Okay so I'm 12 years old and going to be 13 in April 17th... Not the point I'm not sure if I got my period so I'm not some period Expert or anything and you probably already told your parents but if not then I can help you. Do you have a phone? If so you can text them and say something along the lines of "Hey could you get me a box of pads (or tampons depending on what you use) I think I started my period.
