1. Talk us through your first period, where were you? when was it? and what was your reaction?
Well.. my first period was long awaited for! I didn’t get it until I was in year 8! Which compared to my girlfriends was quite late. I desperately wanted it and used to go to sleep and pray that I would have it when I woke up in the morning.
Of course, my long-awaited period came at the worst time! I was running cross country and I felt It! At that point, I prayed it wasn’t what I thought it was after hoping for so long to get it! I ran straight to the bathrooms and found the mess that appeared! I was too embarrassed to tell anyone that I filled my undies with toilet paper until I got home and cried to my mum! Safe to say after that I wish I didn’t have it after all!
2. What is a period must have for you?
My period must have is some sort of chocolate for sure! I always crave something sweet when my period is coming and it really doesn’t help when I’m trying my best to be healthy! Another must-have is my heat pack!
3. What’s your most embarrassing, cringe worthy, totally funny period moment?
I don’t necessarily have an exact moment that I can share but an embarrassing moment I remember would have to be when I found out that everyone was wearing tampons and that I was still wearing pads! Safe to say I pretended I wore tampons for months before I actually started using them as I was too embarrassed to admit I wore pads!
