  • 11, in the 6th grade and I didn't tell anyone, not even my mom, I just took care of it myself.

  • I was 12 I think. I didn't tell my Mom and didn't know anything about it. I thought I was supposed to use pantie liners. It started right before church. It was awful! I will make sure my daughter knows exactly what to do if she gets her period and doesn't want to come to me.

  • I was in the 6th grade. My Mother never talked to me. I told my big sister I was dying. She filled me in. I made sure my little sister knew BEFORE she was surprised.

  • 5th grade, I was 10 or 11. I just remember when my classmates found out. I was bullied even more for it than before.

  • I was 12 and I wasn't too happy. I had enough emotional problems, I didn't need hormonal problems too.
