My mum gave me her left over home brand maxi pads for my first few months!! In the end I used my pocket money to buy the pads my friends used!
This may sound odd, but I wish I had known to trim my pubic hair. It was quite long and I used to get clots caught in it! I would want to shower constantly.

On topic, My mum was really supportive when I got my period at 15. After a long talk and supplies she had a book that she gave to me but it was info from the early 80's.
The only thing she didn't tell me that heavy 7day periods with severe crippling pain was abnormal and she didn't put me on any contraception and left that to me.
So I just went straight to the depovera contraceptive needle and that just did all sorts of funny things to my body.

Thanks so much for the fantastic tips, and for sharing your stories. I had another big chat to her last night, taking on the suggestions here. The references to Dolly mag (which was also great source of info for me) made me thing about a book, so I bought Girl Stuff by Kaz Cooke n eBay last night, and will give that to her.
ETA: I am kind of practicing a bit on her; my youngest has Down syndrome and I know this is going to be MUCH harder when she gets to this stage

My 'period talk' consisted of mum saying to me 'now you are a woman, you will bleed every month and you should wear these pads in your knickers and change it every 3 hours.
That was it.
I wish I'd have known the correct way to use a tampon. I had seen them in the bathroom draw for years but never really paid much interest. I decided to use one instead of those horrid big pads mum said I had to use.
I placed it in my knickers and was horrified an hour later when I went the loo to check,obviously it had gone everywhere..

Let them decide by going online to choose pads/tampons as I hated having to go into the pad isle.
Explain that excercise can really help with the pain so a casual walk is great. Get her a wheat bag it was great for my cramps. Get her some comfy knickers for when she has her periods as your tummy can be tender.
Funnily enought the first person I told that I had my first period was my brother who was 23 yrs old at the time he looked bewillded and aske d why would I be having my first one now as its half through the school year he thought I meant my first school subject of the day. I had to then explain it
