Who gave you the "period" talk?

I got it from an older lady at the church we used to go to. She saw a red stain on my skirt one day, and jumped on it, so to speak. So, I was wondering, did anyone else get it from someone other then their mom?

  • Nobody did. I didn't know what was wrong with me when it first appeared.

  • I never got the talk. I was handed a book to read - then when i got it my mom gave the a rundown of how to use the necessities.

  • My 5th grade teacher. My mom handed me a book and told me to read it and ask if I had any questions. She didn't tell me about sex or birth control either. I found out on my own at school or trusted friends and their moms. My son is almost 13 and knows a lot about birth control, his body, etc. because I talk to him and am not embarrased to answer his questions. He knows how I feel too.

  • School. Lucky for me. We saw our first video, and a couple months later I started. Good thing so I knew what it mom never talked to me about any of it (sex, protection, periods - none of it)

    I will NOT do the same with my daughter. With her it will be an on-going age appropriate conversations.

  • no.
    I think it was school. our house took this trip down memory lane the other day about this kind of thing, and really whose parents ever bothered to address anything with them?
