My First Period - How to tell people watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    I'm 13yrs old, and in January I got my first period. My mum had already bought supplies, so I just used them. But I haven't told anyone yet. I'm not that close with my mum to talk about personal stuff, but I don't think it's important to tell her because I've got everything I need. However, I feel bad holding it from my friends. Does anyone have any conversation starters so I can tell them.

    P.S - I haven't had my period since, is that normal?

    well i was at the end of year 9 when i stated mine my friends had all started it about six months- a year before me and i was so proud i told them, i felt excited that i started it but now its just a pain in the a**

    You dont really need to tell people imo, i mean if it will help you go for it. With friends, if your close just be like guys ive got my period, and ask them if they've started that sort of thing. With your mum, I would tell her so then she can constantly get you supplies so you dont unexpectedly run out. Yes periods can be all over the place, at 18 mine still arent not regular. It can take a while for your body to find a routine and for them to become regular.
