Today my sister got her period so my mum called our whole family over to have dinner in honour of my sister’s menstrual cycle and my aunty started crying and saying how she was such a young woman and then my grandmother gave her $50 and then we all sat at the table and started telling stories about our first periods
This happened in my English class one time and the girl who was going picked up her bag as she got up and the male teacher just said “Put your bag down and go to the bathroom.” and without any hesitation she just said, “I need something in it there is blood coming out of my vagina.” He never made girls leave their bags again.
when i got my period for the 2nd time (i was like 11/12) it was a day late and i thought that if it was late it meant you were pregnant so i cried bc i thought i was pregnant and i even started thinking of names okay bye
I didnt get my period until i was 19. It was a running joke in my family that Id never be a teen mom. On Thanksgiving i called to my mom for a tampon. I walked out of the bathroom to see money being passed around. They had bet on when i would get it.
