Because you want to know all about my period...

This post is brought to you from the one directly preceding it.

I remember when I was in my early teens, asking my mom what getting my period would be like.  I was left with the impression that I would feel a cramp, go sit on the toilet, pee blood and be done with it.

Wouldn't that be nice?

I had no idea that it came from the vagina and not the urethra.  I didn't know i would take days.  I didn't now it would look any different than the blood when you get a big cut.

The first time I got my period, I didn't even notice.  I spent the day swimming at a neighbour's house and when I got home and changed out of my swimsuit I noticed a little stain on the crotch.  My mom told me to use tampons but I was scared too.  She insisted but my sister saved the day with Maxi-Pads.

I didn't get it again for about 6 months.  I was feeling sick at school in the afternoon and when it was finally the end of the day my stomach was hurting so bad I huddled in the hallway in a ball until I regained my composure and made it to the bus.  I got home and went to pee and was shocked by the goo that I found.  Nothing like I imagined.  I spent a good while cleaning up before everyone else got home.  I don' remember if I told anyone.

So what was your first time like?  What misconceptions did you have about the whole thing beforehand?
