First Period Experience
Where were you when your first period started? How old were you?
Did you talk to your mom, friends? What was your initial reaction? Retrospectively, could it have been
different or more positive experience, and, if so, how?
Uncomfortable, but not too traumatic.

I was thirteen, and I noticed that I wasn't feeling well during P.E. We were supposed to be doing a mile run, but it was all I could do to walk on the inside of the track because I was cramping and otherwise feeling miserable, and not knowing why. After I got back to the locker rooms, I changed and went to the bathroom before my next class, and I noticed some bloody-brownish gunk in my underwear. It took me a few moments to realize what it was (all the girls in the 4th and 5th grade at my elementary school were brought together and told about puberty and periods when I was in 5th grade), but when I did recognize it, I rolled some toilet paper up in my underwear and decided to go to the nurse at lunch, as there was only one class period between then and lunch. Once I got to the nurse's office, she gave me a large pad and called my mother. My mother came and picked me up to take me to my grandmother's for the rest of the day, where I took some aspirin and layed down while she went out to buy me some clean underwear and pads.
