Update: This is an old post, but it’s still good information.
I had my first period when I was around 10 or 11 years of age. It lasted for about two days and then stopped. A few months later, I started skipping school because I didn’t want to get on the bus after class because it would be so crowded with girls having their periods! It continued throughout high school until college where they finally gave me some “feminine hygiene pills” that kept me dry all day long (this was in the 80s…remember how different things were back then?). The thing that pissed me off most about these pills however, was that you could only use them once a month max! Like seriously? What am I supposed to do if this one doesn’t work?! So needless to say, at 18 years old, after using these stupid things since coming out of puberty, my body decided it wanted to start bleeding again no matter what!!! That crazy bitch!! And guess what…it did too…..AND IT STILL DOES!!!! Ughhhh….I hate being a woman sometimes!! 😛 Anyways guys….on with my story…………..
