first period: princess gwenevere and the red riders

three's a first time for everything. period.

BRRRRIIINNNNGGGGG! That bell means it’s time for first period. This gURL may have ruined her favorite underwear, but at least she made a new friend! (The school nurse.)

I got mine when I was 12. I got my period in my Princess Gwenevere underwear, which was my favorite, so I was pissed. I tried to sit through the rest of the day and wait until I got home to get a pad, but it was too much. I asked to go to the nurse and I told her. Then she called my mom and acted like getting my period was the biggest deal ever. She then gave me a pad and I left. Throughout the rest of my middle school years I was in and out of that office because I always forgot pads. 😀

| when this gURL got her period, she felt new responsibilities. did you? |

    In September of 2005, when I got my first period, I didn't have any pads, so I bled straight through my jeans. I asked a girl to borrow one of her two jackets and she wouldn't let me, so I could do nothing but ask my science teacher (at that time, a 51 year old male) to let me go to the nurse to get a new pair of pants. I said "Mr R, a very private thing just happened to me, may I please go to the nurse to get a new pair of pants?" And he was like "Sure thing! I won't tell anyone, just quietly slip out the door."

    So I did. I got my pants and all was well again.

    In December, my science teacher was teaching a mandatory sex education class. On the first day of having both boys and girls in our class, he started talking about periods and said, "Now girls, you can ALWAYS trust me if you need something for your period! Just ask me to go to the nurse and I'll let you go. When Chloe got her first period and bled through her pants, she asked me to go and I let her!!!!"

    Right when he said that, EVERYONE turned and faced me with looks of disgust. I was HUMILIATED!!! It was by far the most embarrassing moment of my life. That was six years ago and I am still teased about it.
