1. Talk us through your first period, where were you? when was it? and what was your reaction?
I had a prior conversation with my mum about what I can expect, so when I found spotting in my underwear I didn’t hesitate to show her to confirm, yes it was in fact my first period. I was luckily in the comfort of our home in the toilet at the young age of 13. That year was definitely a year for firsts!
2. What is a period must have for you?
Ginger tea & hot water bottle
3. What’s your most embarrassing, cringe worthy, totally funny period moment?
I have a cringe worthy moment that I definitely didn’t find funny at the time! I used pads for the first few years and occasionally I wouldn’t be on top of changing my feminine hygiene methods and consequently would seep onto my high school dress. I would have to wear my jumper around my waist until my mum arrived with a new dress to wear. Mortifying.
