When I was 13 and in the 8th grade, my girlfriend's little sister who was 11 and in the 6th grade started her period. Since their mom had died when they were both very young, and since they were both being raised by their father who neither of them wanted to discuss these types of things with, ...like the good big sister that she was "C" taught her little sister "L" all about tampons and how to use them, ...or so she thought.
One day a bunch of us were hanging out at "C's" house afterschool. We were sitting in the kitchen, when "L" comes down the stairs and says... "C, ...I don't know about these tampon thingy's. I've had it in for about 4 days now, ...and it's getting kind-a-soggy"
Needless to say, we all hit the floor laughing. It seems "C" forgot the part about telling her she needs to change the tampon every few hours
sounds really horrible. she probably got a disgusting female gyno disorder from that episode.
someone shoulda told her !!!
One of my funny childhood memories is the pads in the bottom drawer. My mum sat me down and told me all about it when I was 12 and those Dr Whites pads sat there staring back at me. Waiting for me to grow up.
I didn't get my period till I was 16. I had to take those pads to girl guide camp and back with me and I was the last one in my class to get my bleed. It was dire. But luckily I learned all about it from my friends. I remember helping girls in the gym shower and explaining to them what was happening.
I went on the Pill at 16 (immediately after getting my period) and I lost my virginity (wonderfully) that year too.
& I didn't grow tits till I was 17
