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?

The first was the best.
my first period was pretty uneventful. i was 12 1/2 and school had just ended about 2 weeks earlier [thankfully!]. both my mom and sis had started at 12, so i started carrying pads w/ me right after i turned 12 just to be prepared.earlier that day i felt strange...had my first hot flash of sorts and felt crampy towards the end of the night [didn't realize they were cramps at the time]. a few hrs later [midnight], i got up to use the bathroom and saw one little drop of what i thought was blood. i tried calling my mom [who was asleep], and then called my older sister who confirmed it was my period. it didn't really do much until noon though and my mom showed me how to put on a pad. she had a much more subdued reaction than i expected [but still called everyone to tell them i'd started...yay lol]. what i remember most vividly was after my mom told my dad that i'd started and i went in to see him, he just held me and had a very sad face. [i'm the youngest, the daddy's girl of the family, so i think he had to face the fact that i was really growing up]. honestly, that first period was the "best" one i've had. it was the only one where i had no cramps [besides the few before i started]and it only lasted 2 days. i'd take that over the painful, 6-7 day ones i've had for the past 9.5 years lol.
