Period Story #3 : My mom taught me everything I know about periods
Lyha writes:

It was the day before my family’s big trip and some friends and I decided to go to the beach. It was basically my idea so everyone met at my house.

The day before I had been noticing some brown stains in my underwear. I thought I pooped myself but it had no smell. Weird I thought… Anyways I didn’t really think much of it.

All my friends, both boys and girls (but mostly boys), were there and we were just about ready to leave when I felt something warm crawling down my leg. I’ve never felt it before. I excused myself from a conversation I was having with a boy and went to the bathroom.
There it was, a bright red stain on my underwear!!!

There it was, a bright red stain on my underwear. I figured it couldn’t have been that bad since it was just a spot. But it didn’t take long before I started to bleed heavily.

I yelled for my mom to come and help me. Thankfully this happened at my house so she was able to help me. She gave me and overnight ultra thin pad to wear.

She explained to me that periods are normal and that I shouldn’t be embarrassed about it but I was still crying. She even showed me how to put on a pad and afterwards I left the bathroom with my cheeks tear stained.

The boy I was talking to asked what was wrong with me, but of course I said nothing. The good thing is, I still swam at the beach and had a great time. It turned out one of my friends had her first period on that very same day as well!

Thank you mom for teaching me about my period!
