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?

My first period was barely a period at all. I was 11 and I had brown spotting. I knew what that meant, so I stole some of my mom's pantiliners. I told no one about that time. My second period was horrible. I woke up with the worst cramps, but I didn't realize they were cramps. I told my mom that I didn't feel good and that I couldn't get out of bed my stomach hurt so bad. My mom must have known right away, because she asked my where it hurt and when I showed her, she handed me two Advil and told me that I needed to get out of bed because we were going to the store for pads. I hadn't even been to the bathroom to see if I was bleeding yet! I felt so embarassed and guilty for not telling her sooner. After our trip to the store, she made me hot buttered rum and told me to relax and enjoy being a woman. Enjoy being a woman? Sure, but I certainly don't enjoy my period!!!
