    Same here.

    I honestly cant remember how it was handled but all I can say is that I had always been very comfortable with going to my mum about those kind of things. I think maybe we had a couple of private conversations warning me that it may happen so when I did all I did was tell her and she showed me the pads.

    I think because we were/are such an open family, no event like this is groundbreakingily memorable because it's openly discussed, no feelings of awkwardness, it just happens.

    I don't remember much about it, just that it happened at school. I got to go home early, while mum rang all her sisters about it. I wasn't very impressed, I had asked her not to say anything and she gleefully broke my trust
    I really hope to handle it better for my DD

    She gave me some pads. Huge ones which were awful because that's all she had in the cupboard and some liners.

    So lucky I paid attention to my friends, pd/h/pe and girlfriend/dolly because she didn't really talk to me about it at all.

    She is way too uncomfortable about that kind of thing. Instead of saying she has her period or it's that time of the month she says she has her "things"

    She did have to write me a note for school though because we had year 7 swim school and lucky me got them on the first day so missed it all.

    I don't know if I'll ever have a daughter to teach about it but I will definitely have my sons more informed if only so they can be considerate of girls.

    Ha, yes it speaks volumes for our relationship that at 11 I was quite comfortable going to the shops alone and interacting with a shop assistant to buy pads yet not comfortable telling my mum about it.

    I will be doing all I can to make it different for my daughter!

    My mum was crap, sent me to school with no pads. My cousin got me another one from the office then filled me in.

    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
