I had my first period when I was in 6 grade. I didn’t know much about it from my mom or school. But you heard all kind of stories from friends and how discomfort it will be. little did I know , when it was your turn , you will be scared , panic and not knowing what to do. There is one thing for sure is that “ period “ is something “ bad “. It make your body very painful with cramp , and the blood is some dirty stuffs from your body.
Thankfully, i had my first period when I was not in school so my mom got me the pad. Otherwise I will be so embarrassed to have my first period in school with no pad and we have pure white dress uniform. which make it super obvious with blood stain.
I was a very shy kid When I was little. And since I thought the period is not a good thing, ( it is something dirty from your body , it makes the blood stain on your dress, and it make your body cramps etc) …there it make me more separate from other kids. Because I don’t want anybody to know that I have Period and worried that the blood might leak , and that will show on my “ white dress uniform“ .
