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.

My first period happened when I was 11 and I woke up to brown stuff in my pants and I did not tell my mum to the next day and she told me to put a pad on . I am on my second period now and it is red.

Hi there, luv this site btw Vicki. Its great! So, I got my period yesterday, and the few days before i had had a cramp and i also felt really hungry, even though I ate the same amount as usual. Then that evening after dinner, I went upstairs to shower, but first went to the toilet and when I wiped my vagina I realized that dark brown stuff was blood! I checked my pants and they had it too, so I called to my mum quickly and she went out and bought me some pads. When I first put it on it was uncomfortable and itchy, but when I woke up the next morning I found it felt normal. I packed a few for school the next day, and was surprised at the amount of blood. I thought it would be worse tbh. So far, I hav just found it a bit tedious. I have a good trick for sneeking pads to the toilet... just hide it up your sleeve! Hope this is helpful and if anyone is worrying about their periods, don't because everyone gets it and it is normal.

<3 you girly

Ok so not a horror story it is actually really sweet but some background I got my period in 6th grade. I play the flute with a male band teacher (he is so amazing) I have also always dreamed of marching band anyway I did not feel good on my period and he noticed he has girls at home and let me go to the bathroom and He let me lay on the floor and watch a movie with my class that entire week with the other is instrements in the hour I have now moved on and have better control but we got the entire week of before the end of school even though we were supposed to play He is now my favorite teacher and he will be my teacher in high school. 💛 In addition he inspired me to play and now wants me to play a solo and try out for a audition only band!
