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 staying with my auntie when I got mine i was 12, i had to borrow $2 off her to call my mum & dad! They came and got me straight away! My cousins all thought I was scared and wanted to come home, but mum later told them!

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.

I got mine for the first time when I was staying with my Aunty for a few days (my parents were away on holiday). I was too embarrassed to tell my Aunty, so I used toilet paper for pads until my parents picked me up.
When we got home I told my mum, I was really upset and emotional about not being able to tell her straight away. She was lovely about it and made me feel much better.

I already knew the details and Mum gave me an emergency kit for my school bag in grade 6, so she didn't have to explain anything when it happened. She was super excited though
