This is vicky’s story

I was the last of my friendship group to get my period. I was 14, woke-up and went to the loo one morning, only to find my first period had arrived. Luckily my nan left me some pads in my room and I had learned all I needed to know about periods from my friends. It did take me a while to get used to wearing a pad as they felt so bulky. I thought everyone would see it through my clothes, or if a boy pinched my bottom he would feel it. So I quickly moved on to tampons.

So, it was a fine morning, and I went to school. When I needed the toilet, I saw a brownish stain all over my pants. I thought it was just some poo so I left it. Then this happened again the next day.... I was nervous on the third day so i told my mum after school. She said " You have your period, Xin Yan " I didn't believe it. So DONT be afraid to tell ur mum X Hope my story helped :) -Xiñ Yañ <3


I was 12 years old it was August 13 and I thought I was never going to get it. I spent literally all my time researching any symptoms I had such as discharge constipation and stomach aches and I also watch most of every period story time on YouTube I was OBSESSED with getting my period. A few days back my friend said she had gotten her period and she was smaller than me so I wanted my period SO bad then the day before I got my period I had so many cramps headaches and heavy discharge so the next day I woke up and went to the toilet only to discover a huge red brownish stain on my underwear luckily it didn’t stain my bed 🛌 and I was happy. I was finally a woman now and I loved it . I eventually told my friends and my mum bc ik that I didn’t have enough pass to last me I had already given two to my friends at school so I had two left

periods ??

well it was just a normal day and i went to the toilet and there was a bit of blood i thought i just had a little cut because thats happend to me before so i go to school its a normal day and my friends start talking about periods and i say how i haven't had mine and i don't want to get it until like 15. one day later: i was in the car my mum was driving my brother and i to the bus stop to go to school and i have really bad back pain a cramps and i though its just nothing false alarm. i get to school late because there was a huge car accident on the way to school and i meet up with my friend outside because they were waiting for another bus because we had a excursion to a theatre because our school was have a dance concert and i was in it. when i get to the theatre I'm doing my dance and my undies felt wet i was not worried until i went to the bathroom to go to the toilet and get change i see that its a bit red but i cant tell because my undies were black i wiped my undies and it was all RED stuft i think i go and find something to use and i could only use a tampon but i didn't put it in properly and it hurt!!!! that was by far the worst day of my life!!!
