period story justin beiber

During 6th period, I begin to feel some blood on my pants. But I thought I was probably imagining it, and just went on.

I had always used pads and hated them. So, I decided to use tampons. I wore a tampon to school and everything was fine for the first half of the day. During lunch, I had to go change my tampon. For some reason, I decided to not do it.

So, during 6th period, I begin to feel some blood on my pants. But I thought I was probably imagining it, and just went on.

As 6th period ended, I realized my period was actually leaking. Thank god I wore black jeans!

I tied a jacket around my waist, just in case. When I got to 7th period, I looked in my bag for a tampon or pad. I thought I had something, but NO! I didn’t have anything with me. I went to the bathroom to check and of course, there was blood all over my underwear. I did not know what to do.

I had P.E. next, and it just happened to be the day where I was going to be sprinting. I told a teacher and went to the office, so I could get a pad. But when I got there, a random guy was standing there talking to the lady. I didn’t want to ask her for a pad in front of the guy, so I just asked her if I could call my mom. I called my mom and got her to pick me up. I was probably the happiest person ever when she showed up.

Worst Period Story submitted by Kristina

I got my first period last year and within a few cycles, I regretted saying “Ugh. I wish it was heavier than this. This isn’t even a period!”

I was the girl that was really wanting hers and researching EVERYTHING.

Well, the day started off with me waking up and starting. I figured… Welp… Probably just another small one once again. NO.

Never have I been so shocked at how much blood I was losing!

I went through heavy pads within an hour and I was only 12! Talk about being paranoid.

I even leaked through my pants a bit and on the sheets.

Luckily, I have been somewhat regular and haven’t had a heavy period like that again!

So girls, remember I was just like you – wanting it so bad till I realized what it was actually like!

This worst period story is about my SLEEPOVER NIGHTMARE!

It was my best friends birthday, she was having a sleepover at her house. They wanted to go swimming and me being on my period refused.

I didn’t want to tell them the truth because none of them have gotten it yet. I told them I forgot my bathing suit and well my sister did too.

We went to the mall and her grandpa offered to buy me and my sister a bathing suit. My sister got a bathing suit and when we got back they tried to push me in the pool (swim suit or not).

After an hour of fighting them off we decided to watch a movie and set up our beds.

I was sleeping on an air mattress, her grandpa gave me WHITE sheets and a WHITE blanket.

I didn’t think the blood would soak through my pad but it did.. When I woke up I felt it, the damp spots on my shorts.

Everyone was still sleeping so I tried to clean myself up. I changed and put on a new pad, put toilet paper on my panties too because they were still wet >.> (I should’ve brought an extra pair of panties).

Everyone woke up and her grandpa came to grab the blankets and sheets. I put the sheet in a ball and handed it to him to wash.

I’m not sure if her grandpa found out or seen the stain but I left right after that. I told no one.

I just started my period the day before with severe abdominal pains and constipation….. I wanted to cry so bad!…

That night after I begged my mom to come get me from school because I was in soo much pain… I got a pillow and placed it under my stomach to help me sleep but my period had already filled up my pad completely and my pjs were covered in blood. I rushed to the bathroom to clean myself up.

Afterwards my mom told me she wanted to go shopping so I went and decided to wear a pad, underwear, a new pair of pjs, and sweats over the PJs AND I still bled through everything!

It was a Saturday and as usual my period was heavy. I was out all day and forgot to take extra pads along. So as I was in the car I felt as if the pad was leaking and my mom just said maybe it’s just squishy.

I came down from the car when we got to the mall and there it was blood everywhere even on the road and the chair was soaked!!

My mom entered the mall bought tampons and pads and walked me inside and allowed me change my clothes too. It was the worst experience in my life.

I was at home when my period started and right away I headed to the bathroom. I had horrible cramps and really had to go to the bathroom, but each time I tried I was just left feeling constipated. I was in so much pain I couldn’t see straight. I laid down on the bathroom rug and closed my eyes.

When I work up I had leaked all over the rug and left a big red stain. I was so bloated and had so much abdominal pain that it hurt even to wear underwear. I felt like there was nothing I could do! I asked my boyfriend to call the ambulance.

I was in so much pain I had to go to the ER.

At the ER is was a busy day and the chair I had to sit in was broken. It hurt too much to sit down so I laid on the floor. Then I threw up right there in the middle of the hallway.

I have always been really scared of needles and hadn’t even had a blood test in several years. On this day I was in so much pain that I was hurting too much to be scared. I let them do a blood test and then they put an IV in and gave me antibiotics for a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) before giving me a full course of morphine for the pain. I finally started to feel a bit better so they said I could go home but I had to come back for a week of IV antibiotics to treat this UTI.

I thought my Mom would understand and come help me but she said I should suck it up and refused to come get me from the hospital. Finally she agreed to come pick me up but she was very angry at me for making such a big deal out of my period. When we got home my Mom yelled at my for leaving a period stain on the bathroom rug. So ontop of being so physically sick I also felt very sad that my Mom was being so mean.

Even though my Mom didn’t understand, I am now more informed about period pain and women’s health. I later found out that the cause of my pain and problems was not a UTI but was Endometriosis, a chronic disease.

Period pain and problems are nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed of and if you or someone you know had painful periods that interfere with their daily life it may be a sign of a medical problem or condition. I hope no one else has to have an experience like mine, worst period ever!

So one day I got my period and I totally wasn’t ready for it. I was wearing thin white shorts that day and didn’t have a pad on me.

I was on my boyfriends lap at the park. We were laughing and he started to tickle me! Whenever I laugh I pee a little…

And I started laughing so hard that I couldnt’ stop peeing!

Blood started to come out too and that’s when I found out I was on my period!

I start to cry but my boy friend says it’s ok! We run to his car and he drives us to the store – he runs inside and guess what he buys me???

My boyfriend bought me DIAPERS!

I started crying even more and tell him I need pads! Not diapers! He thought the diapers looked like pads so that’s why he bought them. He threw the diapers in the car and ran back into the store to buy pads.

This time he bought me EXTRA THICK pads

I started to cry even harder because my period was leaking through my white thin shorts faster and faster… so I put on the diaper and pad… then my boyfriend took me home to his house and I feel asleep.

I woke and I had a different pad on and some boxer shorts and his sweat pants.. Worst day of my life!

Worst Period Story: I leaked at a celebrity party!

I had just had the worst period ever but figured it was just a fluke incident.

I was scheduled to volunteer at this fancy fundraiser party at this vacation destination. The party was a 3 hours drive away and I had been assigned to go with this guy I had never met before.

There were going to be celebrities there and I was supposed to take photos so I was pretty excited.

Just my luck, I woke up the morning of the party with my period.

Right away I started to have very painful cramps and felt nauseous. I tried to breathe deeply and took some over-the-counter pain medication on the drive over.

pristine-bathroomAfter sitting in the car for 3 hours we reached the location of the party. I stood up and felt this huge gush as all the flow from the 3 hour car ride was pulled down by gravity. I immediately went to the bathroom to change my pad and tampon.

The bathroom was all white! The towels were white, the toilet was white, everything was white, and very very clean.

I felt so embarrassed to be dumping all of this menstrual blood in this oddly pristine washroom.

As the party started I continued to feel sicker and more nauseous. I started to get weak in the knees. I went back to the bathroom and this time was in so much pain I actually passed out on the floor.

Someone eventually knocked on the door loudly and I woke up to discover there was a long line of people waiting to use the washroom. I had also leaked through my fancy dress onto the white floor of this white coloured washroom.

I was mortified! I wiped it up and put a sweater around my waist to hide any stains on my dress. And everyone I knew at the party was a guy so I didn’t even have any other girls to help me out.

I tried to avoid all of the celebrities because I didn’t want them to see anything embarrassing. And then after all that I had to take another 3 hour drive home with this guy I didn’t know very well. Worst period ever!

I keep having painful periods like this and was eventually diagnosed with Endometriosis (link to: http://www.theperiodblog.com/guide-to-periods/endometriosis-everything-you-need-to-know/), a painful chronic disease.

Worst Period Story: I had to go to the hospital!

Jenni Rempel writes:

I was 21 and had just moved to NYC to do a summer internship. I was living in an intern apartment with my first-ever roommate and was a little embarrassed about having my period around someone I didn’t know well.

I had bought a Diva Cup to use during my trip but had never tried it before. So my period started and I went to try the Diva Cup for the first time, but I couldn’t get it in right! I tried about 5 times until it finally stayed but it didn’t feel like it was inserted correctly.

My roommate and I had to run off to an event we were volunteering at so I figured it was good enough and decided to just leave.

Once we got on the subway I started to feel really bad cramps and got very woozy. Then I started to get a fever and needed to lie down. By the time we reached our stop I couldn’t stand anymore and needed to go to the bathroom, badly. I was feeling really bad so I parted ways with my roommate and switched trains to go home.

I even laid down on the subway bench (luckily it was a Sunday morning and the train wasn’t crowded) on the way back. When I got back to the stop near my house I was so weak I could barely move. I had to crawl up the stairs to the subway exit.

I hobbled into the first place I saw, which was an IHOP restaurant, and asked to use the bathroom. At first they wouldn’t let me because I had to buy something in order to use the washroom. I was so woozy and in so much pain I couldn’t think straight and collapsed on the waiting bench.

I finally asked for a bottle of water, gave her $20 and was allowed to go to the washroom. I tried to go to the bathroom but I was very constipated.

DivaCup Model 1 Review & Photos

It took me about 10 minutes to get the Diva Cup out and it was almost full of blood when I removed it. I had never had a very heavy period before so I was pretty surprised and concerned to see this.

Even after I took the cup out and tried to use the washroom I was still in so much pain which continued to get worse.

Because I was new in the city I didn’t really know anybody to ask for help, but I knew I was too sick to climb the stairs to my apartment or walk home. The hostess came into the washroom to check on me and I asked her to call an ambulance.

As the paramedics took me away the hostess gave me my bottle of water and change. She really wanted me to buy something!

I ended up taking an ambulance to the hospital where I was diagnosed with “unidentified gastritis”.

Afterwards I keep having painful periods like this and was eventually diagnosed with Endometriosis a painful chronic disease. Talk about the worst period ever!

Jenni Rempel’s Endometriosis Story – Surgery Fundraiser

My periods were pretty irregular and uneventful until turned 21 when I suddenly had cramps so painful I ended up in the hospital.

When I was a teen and growing up people used to tell me that period pain was normal and something all women deal with.

I remember some girls at school would use it as an excuse to skip gym class but I never knew there could be a disease or serious problem that could cause periods to be extremely painful.

I always thought cramps were normal and that everyone has period pain, but now I know better.

Did you know?
Painful periods and extreme cramps that cause you to miss school/work or interfere with your life are not normal. They may be a symptom of endometriosis or other health problems. Learn More.

I had never heard of Endometriosis or endo until I became sick myself and started having extreme period pain and other abnormal symptoms like vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, and other flu-like symptoms with my period.

My periods also became very heavy, which was unusual for me. In my family it was taboo to discuss periods so I was also really embarrassed about the medical problems I was having.

Now I know that chronic diseases like endometriosis are nothing to be ashamed of. No one knows what causes endometriosis for sure but it certainly isn’t anyone’s fault.

I have also found it so difficult to get help for this disease because there is such a lack of information out there. My local library only has one book on the topic! I have seen several different doctors and many of them have told me there is nothing they can do for me.

That is why I am campaigning to raise awareness about Endometriosis and funds so that I can have laparoscopic excision surgery. You can learn more about my story and campaign here:

With Endometriosis, every period is the worst period ever. For myself and many others the pain and symptoms only get worse over time.

I hope one day there is a cure for this disease, and until then I hope we can continue to raise awareness so that no one ever think rehabilitating pain is “normal”.
