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?

First Period Experience

Finally felt like a woman!

I was at home when I got my first period. I was 4 months shy of turning 15. I didn't have any symptoms that I have now (cramping, bloating, etc.) so I had no idea I was starting. I went to the bathroom and, when I wiped, I realized I was spotting. I must have wiped 4 times! lol When you're almost 15 and haven't gotten your period yet, you're pretty excited when it finally does come! I called my mom (who was already at the grocery store) and told her that I'd need her to pick me up some pads. She did and I asked my sister all kinds of questions: How long do you wear a pad? Will everyone be able to tell I'm wearing one? When will I get my next period? I walked around feeling like a woman for the first time! Little did I know how much I'd grow to hate my montly curse! :-)
