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 12, in the seventh grade...I started one afternoon with brownish spotting and was in complete denial of what it actually was. I refused to believe it was my time. I hid my period from my mother, and everybody else, for the first few cycles. I doubled up my panties, wedged toilet paper, did anything to absorb without actually using a maxi pad. My mother found out what I'd been "concealing" when she removed my laundry from the washing machine one afternoon. I was embarrased but relieved that she'd found out.
