    I had been prepared for it thanks to previous discussions and a good early sexual education program in early primary school. I was 11 and mum just gave me pads.

    The only bad thing was that she told dad. I asked her not to... And I get as an adult why she might tell him anyway but he was a dumb person to tell... Almost immediately he came out to question me about it. I felt I couldn't trust her from then on. (I do now, but it took me a long while after that).

    We had done all the birds and the bees at school, so I had some idea of what was going on.
    When the day came mum didn't really say much, just gave me some pads and explained how to sick them on to your undies.
    She told my dad (much to my horror) and he gave me $20? Lol

    I didnt know it was my period! It was all dark and brown - I thought it was supposed to be bright red, so though it was some poo that had randomly snuck up into that area of my knickers!!!

    I was 12, I had to call mum at work and ask her to get me some pads. I don't remember the conversation but she let me have the week off school

    I got mine at 17... Yes grade 12...
    I knew all about it dolly mags, school, mum dragging me to the drs every few months from when I was about 14
    I even had to have a scan to make sure I had ovaries and a uterus.
    I think after the scans when I was about 16 the dr said the reason was because I was still fairly under weight for my height.

    Bit of a non-event really... Had done the 'birds & bees' at school & with an older sister I knew what the deal was. Mum was very open about it & would answer any questions.
    I just pinched a few pads from my sister's stash & let Mum know I needed some.

    I was about 11. I vaguely knew what was going on from sex ed. Told my mum. She handed me a pack of tampons and said 'read the instructions'.

    Then when I had finally figured it out I was pretty excited about it all, I told my mum "I feel like a woman now"...and she laughed at me and said 'no you're not'.

    Never spoke to her about anything personal after that.

    I didn't tell mum for 6 months! I knew what it was as we had discussed it, and mum had a drawer of pads and tampons so I just helped myself. I only told her because I needed new undies as I threw away every pair I accidentally leaked on!

    She was upset I didn't tell her but it just wasn't a big deal to me. I was 12.5.

    I'm amazed some people got ice cream sundaes and welcomed to womanhood! Good on your parents for making you feel so special. I woke up at 13 with it, wasn't even sure I had it and told Mum. She just said "Well, you're still going to school, go upstairs and get some of my pads". That was it. Said in a tone of voice like I got my period just to annoy her.
