Tampons, discharge and PMS - OH MY! Periods are notorious for sucking. A lot. But, we’re here to coach you through it. From the very first time you find blood on your undies, to mastering the art of monthly TLC, let’s go back to basics and put your mind at ease (so you can do you, period).
Come and share your first period story’s. Mine will be in the comments below. It is not very interesting. Intresting or not I want to no yours
I woke up one morning, I went to the toilet as I usually do. I saw a small brown spot. I went straight to my step mum to be sure it was what I thought. It was. She went to buy me pads. When she came back she said “ I have just texted dad” ?? later that day dad sat me down to talk about it
I was away with my dad, brothers, and cousins. We had walked for like half an hour, in our togs (togs are what Kiwis call things you swim in), to the swimming spot. I’d been wearing white shorts over my togs and when I pulled my shorts off I saw a red-brown stain in the crotch. I had no idea what to do but I didn’t want to tell anyone so I swam for like 2 minutes to avoid suspicion. I got out and sat down in the rocks with my towel around me to avoid ppl seeing it. When we finally got back to the place we’d been staying at (the only toilet was a long drop!) I realised I had to tell my dad, a bit after I told him my aunt texted him saying my cousin thought I might have my period. I went home a few days later and I was ok in the end.
It was actually 2 days ago that I got my period. So I was getting ready to go to bed, so I was gonna have a shower I pulled down my pants and saw lots of Dried up blood, even though I knew all about periods I was so shocked as I expected less blood. I instantly ran into my mum’s room and told her about it, and then she said that I got my period! I had a shower then put a pad on. I’ve had horrible cramps ever since! ?? Xoxo
i woke up in the morning after having cramps the night before, i went to the toilet and i looked down and sure blood in my knickers. since everyone was asleep i woke up my big sister and told her then she came with me to tell mum. after that i learnt how to put pads on, it was a very exciting day!
My mum was cleaning out my younger brothers room and i said “hey can I go play outside?” So I went to the toilet before I played outside and I saw reddish brownish stuff on my undies I seriously had a panic attack on the toilet I go out and I said “Mum there is some weird reddy stuff on my undies “ she puts down my brothers school work and gives me a liner it only lasted 1 day it was one stressful day let me tell you that
I’m with Butterfly girl I get the worst cramps ever!??
well, i got mine a few weeks ago, i’m 15. i was out with my friend for dinner, a movie, and the arcade. i was complaining of a sore stomach but thought it was because i was eating junk food. i went to the bathroom and there was a tiny bit of blood so i thought nothing of it. i couldn’t sleep because the cramps were so bad. the next day, there was more blood and some on my pyjamas. i told my mum and that was that. because i was so late, i already knew pretty much everything about it.
mine is pretty boring-but I was super lucky-
so-the night before I had heaps of cramps and I felt horrible so just to be safe I put on a pad when I woke up the next day I went to the toilet and sure enough it happened so I told my mum and she got me sorted.
Mine’s kinda boring I guess.. my grandparents were over and I went to the bathroom and luckily I was wearing a panty liner because of discharge because there was brown stuff and girl let me tell you, it was no shock. I’d been so ready for my period to come (not that I was excited lol, just interested) and I knew exactly what it was. I just pulled my undies up and ignored it (coz it wasn’t that much) until my grandparents went home and then I went into mum’s bathroom and got stuff and went mum came into my room I was like guess what… I GOT MY PERIODDD!!
Haha mine was a bit funny. I was at school eek and I went to the bathroom at lunch and thought I had pooed my pants! I was so worried but I always had kept a little bag in my backpack with emergency sanitary products just in case. But then it didn’t come around again for another 7 months!
I was out for high tea in the city with my mum and sister. We fished up, then went to the bathroom. Thats when I saw tiny bits of blood spots. “Not, I’ve got my period”, I said to myself, I was in shock, so then stuffed my undeies with as much toilet paper as I could. After a long, painful ferry trip, we finally got home. It was the evening by this point, so I had dinner and went to bed, still not telling mum yet. I woke in the morning with a tiny bit on blood on my undies. Got up and went to mum, I said “mum, I have to tell you something later…”, she said “what is it, write it down” and as cheesy as it sounds, I still remember writing those words “I got my period.”!!! But yeah for the first 2-3 ish years from getting it I had HORRIBLE cramps, but now I find my period kinda painless and ok ish 😂
Mines not that interesting but anywayyyy, i was with my aunty and cousin and we had been out horse riding for my christmas present from them and when we got back to my aunty’s house i went to the bathroom and pulled my pants down and there was a heap of blood (i had a panty liner on that day cause i would sometimes wear one just incase, idk i was a weird kid ahah) and i knew what it was because i’d heard about it at school and was so excited for it to come (idk why tho cause now i absolutely hate it) and so i wrapped some toilet paper up stuck it in my underwear and went on with my day and finally told my mum when we got home like 5 hours later. i think i was like 13-14 at the time. I didn’t get it again for like another 5 months !!
So I woke up and saw there were these blood stains on my inner thighs I guess, and then I checked and I realised I got my period. I was lucky I woke up early that morning, because I basically was freaking out and texting every one of my friends until one replied. I told them and then I told my mum. The saddest thing was, that day was my school party day and we were going swimming. I didn’t put in a tampon, and call me unhygienic but I went in the pool and nothing happened. Interesting story though 🙂
I got mine on the first day of the year in the morning and i didn’t tell my mum for quite a few hours i just chucked a liner in until night and then i finally told mum and she gave me this big box filled with pads and liners and let me rest for like a week it was pretty basic. Only problem was i had to go to the beach and swim a few days after I got it but now I have had it for over a year and get really bad cramps and am always in a bad mood.
So I had actually been really excited for my period to come,and because of this I knew everything about it, including indicators that it was coming. However, I thought I wouldn’t get it for another 6 months, since I knew that most girls get their periods about 2 years after their breast start developing, and mine had only been developing for 1.5 years.
I was in the computer room with my mom one day, and I needed to go pee. On the way to the bathroom, a thought flickered in my mind: ‘what if I pull down my pants and I got my period?’ But I quickly dismissed the thought, because I thought I would get it in 6 months.
Then I pulled down my pants, and BOOM! I had actually gotten my period!! I was so happy, and a whirlwind of thoughts circled through my head. Before I knew it, I was texting my best friend and telling her I got my period. Then I got a pad from my older sister, and 3 days later I finally got the courage to tell my mom. My first period lasted 9 days.
I always had wanted mine and I had woke up when I was 12 and had mine in my undies I didn’t even put a pad on I went straight for a tampon then had a bath. For the first time I got it I was trying to be really good about going for a walk and keeping on top of my cramps. Now that does not happen
