Not prep'd for first period

Posted by: jrseyshore on Thu Jan 18, 2007

When I got my first period I was 13 and had only a vague notion of what menstruation was about. I never got a pre-talk from my mom and I have no recollection of talking about the coming event with my girlfriends. So when it happened, I was not prepared at all. I told my mom and then she explained about it. I do not remember talking about it with any of my friends right away. At a sleepover months later we had a period powwow and I was amazed at everyone's different experiences. Some said their mom had prepared them and other friends said they were as clueless as me. One girl said her period started at 9 and I was happy mine came much later.
