Embarrasing Menstrual Situation
Ever had a really embarrassing period experience? Did you tell anyone? What advice could you give others so it doesn't happen to them?
The First Time
after the assembly i went to the bathroom and to my horror my pants were red! my teacher gave me a panty liner to 'help me through the day'. i decided to go home sick. mom sent the Salvation army minister to pick me up (he was a family friend). he showed up and it was announced that a 'cop' was there to pick me up.
the next day my classmates asked me how it was 'flowing'.
i was soooo embarrassed
Mama has a boo boo on her butt...
"Daddy- mommy makin brefast and got a boo boo"
"uh oh- did mommy cut her hand making bagels again"
"No... she hurt her hiney"
he didnt have to say anything else THANK GOD because his brain linked 2 & 2 and figured it out...
Fast forward to dinner at the inlaws house where my lovely child proudly exclaims that she helped mommy with her "butt boo boo"
I was DYEING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
at work Embarresment
I dressed in a really cute red and white flowered skirt specifically for my husband who was coming in from overseas and I had not seen in 3 months. (timing was all but wrong that day).
I walked into the copier room to gather some items off the printer and fax some documents. And there it was...the big gush...The clot was so huge...I looked on the floor and there were splash marks and puddles. The only thing i could think of was to grab my skirt really quick and let the blood soak through my skirt to keep from more from draining. My heart fell to the floor as i grabbed a pile of paper towels and fell to the floor to clean as best and clean as i could before any someone came in. I also had time to take more paper towels and wet them quickly to clean again. I grabbed a trash bag to place the unclean paper in it. Just as i finished hiding my disaster, two males walked in and started talking to me and i know they thought something was wrong with me when i didnt respond to them as my normal usual self. I left work quickly, went home and washed and dried my skirt and went to meet my husband at the airport. I had to call someone and tell them what happened, so i called my sister.
The file cabinets are right across from the door to my boss' office. I was squatting down to put some files in the bottom drawyer and to reorganize the drawyer. After squatting for about ten minutes I stood up and felt a gush. My period had started! On my skirt, my leg, my tan suede shoes and on the white tile floor. I ran to my office to grab a tampon and then to the ladies room to clean up and get towels to wipe up the floor. When I came back, my boss was standing at the door of his office looking at the floor. I could have died! I apologized, quickly cleaned up the floor, and took the rest of the afternoon off.
Never wear something short enough for your string to show!!
So I made my way out to the pool area, sporting my slinky black bathing suit and a pair of denim cut off shorts. They had a lot of fray around the legs. They were my favorite shorts. After this day, I threw them away.
I'm not normally one to be embarassed about having my period, but it's not something that I'd have shared with my male friends in high school. We were all sitting on lounge chairs, and the guy I liked was sitting at the foot of mine, with his hands resting on my thighs. I had one leg crooked and the other straigh out. He was playing with the fray on my shorts when all of the sudden, he pulled on a couple of strings. The first few times he did this, it didn't phaze me, but then I felt it...he was tugging on my tampon string. The next thing I know, the guy I had a HUGE crush on is sitting in front of me, face like a ghost, holding up MY bloodsoaked tampon for ALL to see!!
Needless to say, that was the last time he talked to me.
