First time period– Menstruation, Periods, Chums, Menses and D-dates are some of the regular names females have given to their periodic cycle which is one of the toughest natural procedures that takes place in a girl’s body.
I mean can you image constantly bleeding from your vaginal area for five days non-stop and bearing all the excruciating kinds of stuff for those long five days?
Leaving aside the physical problems the mental and nostalgic turbulence which happens in a female’s body are difficult to express. The very first time a lady gets her periods is absolutely nothing except a brand-new adventure for her, though not that pleasing one, however.
These women have shared the feeling they had during the first period- when they saw the blood for the first time and its kind-off funny.
1. I was 14 years of age when I got my very first menstruation. I was in school and suddenly felt something coming out of my vagina, I thought that it was pee as I wanted to pee since an extended period. So I certainly thought that I peed my pants in some way. As I entered the bathroom, I saw blood all over my panties, and I panicked like anything. I wore them back and hurried to my instructor crying that I have hurt my vagina. Everyone was surprised, but later my teacher took me to the medical room and described the process after teaching me the best ways to wear a pad. It was awkward.
2. I was 15 years of age when I got my very first period. It was really challenging for me, but my mom had long taught me the best ways to utilise a pad, and I was quite sure that I need not modify the lessons she gave me. I took a pad very confidently and wore it. It was actually unpleasant, and its application hurt me. After enduring weird discomforts for around 1 hour, I asked my mom that why does putting on a pad pain so much which certainly confused my mother. She took me to the bathroom and started laughing. I blew up on that sort of laughter at that kind of a scenario. Later to my finding, I realised that I used the pad upside-down which means that the sticky side was on my vaginal area and the sponge was on the surface of my panties. How foolish of me.
3. I was 12 years old when I got my first menses and that too while I was sleeping. I got up, and I found blood discolorations on my bed-sheet, and suddenly I went to the scary story my cousin informed me about a witch who possessed kids and teenagers and whenever she used to own someone she used to leave blood from her meals on their beds. I unexpectedly believed that story and started crying. My mother came to rescue and explained everything to me. Later when I talked about this to my cousin sister, she said that the witch she was talking about was called “Puberty”, and I felt like killing her at that time.
These are some first period experiences- Well, these ladies seriously have funny first menstruation memories however on literal terms, women are rather brave since bleeding and breathing together is not that easy. Not at all!
