Embarrasing Menstrual Situation
Ever had a really embarrassing period experience? Did you tell anyone? What advice could you give others so it doesn't happen to them?

I can clearly remember when I was in the sixth grade. I was a newbie "woman" and I did NOT like wearing pads. I wanted to wear the thinnest protection possible. In the late 80s, there was not that much available and my mom would NOT let me wear tampons. Anyways...I thought my period was over when I got up one morning and put on a pantyliner. My mom told me that this was not enough, but I stubbornly told her that it was fine. Well, the entire grade got to watch a movie after lunch that day at school. While we were sitting there, I could feel something... I thought "Oh my God. Please don't let this be!!!" Well, it was. I was deathly afraid of getting up, so I stupidly sat there. When the movie was finally over, I got up and the seat was covered with blood and so was the back of my pants and the middle. I had on a t-shirt, but it wasn't long enough to cover my back. I tried to be the last one out of the auditorium/cafeteria and scooted to class, all the while pulling my shirt down as far as it would go. The nurse gave me a pad, but nothing could be done for my clothes. Suffice it to say that I NEVER ignored my mother's menstrual advice again. I also learned to warn my friends WHENEVER I saw a stain on their clothes so they would not be horribly embarrassed like me. I would advise girls and women to always carry extra protection. :)
