    I was living with my dad. 12 years old. I called my Aunty, she spoke to dad. He went to the corner store and pretty much bought out all the pads and tampons. When he got home he put them all on the table.

    Dad 'you know what to do? You're Aunty said to get you done stuff'
    Me 'yep'
    Dad 'right. I'll leave you to it'

    Poor dad, lol.

    She just smiled and gave me a packet of pads (I was 11). But her brother was visiting, I asked her not to tell him, she said she wouldn't, she asked if she could tell my Dad, I said ok. That was it. I guess it was ok, but it was followed by years of crippling period pain that wasn't treated until I was put on the pill @17

    Mum had the talk about periods from a young age and by high school my sister and I were already carrying pads in our bags so were fully prepared. It wasn't a big deal when we got them as we knew what to expect.

    Great thread, i cant really remember my own experience BUT..
    my DD is 10 and I know I need to have this discussion with her. I just don't know how/ where to start& stop!
    I think I'll sit her down in the school holidays ( in a week) and go from there.

    Yep, I lived with my Dad and I got something similar: "your aunty asked me to ask you if it's a heavy flow". Meanwhile I was completely mortified by this line of questioning.

    I remember I had a bit of brown blood and I freaked out. I told my mum and the conversation went like this:
    Mum: you have your period.
    Me: how long will this last?
    Mum: probably until you're 50 or so.
    Me: *crying* I'm going to have this every day until I'm 50??????
    Mum was on the floor laughing by this stage.

    I honestly don't remember my first period lol I know I was about 11 or 12 and the first couple times she let me stay home from school :B I already kinda knew about periods before that cause she was cleaning out the bathroom cupboards one day and had her pads and tampons in a pile and I asked 'what the nappies were for'

    I can't really remember, I think she just got me pads and that was that. She had already explained it all to me and bought me a book about women's stuff so I knew what to expect.

    I already knew kind of what to expect, I was 13 1/2 (give or take) and all my friends at school had already started. Mum just said something along the lines of "you know what's going on don't you? Good then, here you go" and gave me a pad
