1. Talk us through your first period, where were you? when was it? and what was your reaction?
I think I was at home when it happened, thank god, and I remember the feeling of shock and panic and being quite embarrassed, so I didn’t tell anyone about it until I got it for the second time. I was in year 8 so I might have been 13 or 14 at the time.
2. What is a period must have for you?
Actually nothing. My whole period life I haven’t ever really gotten bad symptoms until the past year or two, so it has taken a while to acknowledge my symptoms and notice what's happening throughout the month with my body. I think I need chocolate when on my period though, but lets be honest, I could always go chocolate.
3. What’s your most embarrassing, cringe worthy, totally funny period moment?
Ok so it wasn’t funny at the time, I remember crying about it, but the second time I got my period, I was distraught. It was on the dreaded school swim sports day... YA KIDDING!
Why now? Why did I have to get my period NOW! What the hell do I do? I cant get into bathers when I had never used a tampon before. I had to get out of this, my mum still didn’t know that I got my first period a month ago, now I had to tell her so I could get out of school. When I told her I remember just uncontrollably crying.
