    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.

    Poor dad, lol.

    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

    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
