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?

I was at school in 7th grade and I was 13 years old. I was extremely relieved that it came because I was 1 month and half away from turning 14 and I knew that I was kind of a "late" starter. I had been waiting for it to happen since the 5th grade. I was behind because I was diagnosed with Type I diabetes when I was 12 years old. This caused me to lose 20 lbs in a 2 week time and it set my puberty back quite a bit. It took a while to regain the weight after diagnoses so needless to say I was embarrased to be the just about the only girl in my peer group to not have her period. All in all it was a positive experience because I finally felt like a woman and included with my peers.
