When Did You Get Your First Period?
I was 13 years and 4 months old.
I was at a party and I was with my boyfriend. We were kissing and I suddenly felt something drip down my leg! I thought I was just imagining it, so I didn't say anything. Then again, I could feel something dripping down my legs. My boyfriend told me that there was a red stain at the back of my skirt, so I excused myself to the bathroom. When I pulled down my skirt I could see my leggings where covered in blood. I took them off and put them in my bag. I had a spare pair of underwear with me, so I changed and asked my friends for a pad.
Where Were You When Your First Period Started?
It wasn't that bad because my friend has the same cycle as me and she had a spare pad. I learned you should always bring your own pad, just in case you start your period.
Later on my boyfriend texted me and said I hope your not gonna change just because you're changing into a woman! I was mortified but he was really nice. He's gotten used to my mood swings.
- You will need a pad and three tampons, in case you go swimming.
- Spare underwear.
- Stomach relief tablets.
- P.S having your period is not as bad as everyone says!
