Ydi for being a girl


the SIGHT of blood.
spelling is SUCH an easy concept


lol its ok because you'll get used to it your body can only fire those "im freaking the fuck get me out of here" response for so long. Its how they get people over phobias, prolonged exposure to anything and eventually you'll calm down, you can only freak out for so long

Thank you for one.

And to the OP, get over it. You big baby.
Blood isn't bad.

Uhh... maybe think about the fact that there is actually VERY little blood in a woman's periods? It's mostly the ovaries (or however you spell that word in English) that exit your body, once their life span is over.

Actually, some girls periods can be really heavy.

And not every girl starts their period when they're 12. Lots of girls get it when they're around 16

160 - They meant that what appears to be blood is actually uterine lining...NOT blood. That's what they meant by "little blood" because it's true...it's not really blood...

Talk to your mom about it and see about getting a form of birth control that allows you to get your period once every three months instead of once a month. See a counselor about your phobia and talk to a gynecologist about your options. Also, avoid using pads. Get tampons or something else.

It's more of a unique and shitty situation than the end of the world.

And to everyone commenting about her age - girls can get their period between ages 7 and 25 or so. It's largely based on how much fat is in a girl's body. Most girls get them at 11 and 12 because of the tendency of puberty. There are gymnasts who don't get them till their twenties because their bodies are so muscular and athletic (same reason most gymnasts have small boobs).

A pint?! Do you know how much a pint of blood is??
At the MOST you should lose a cup of blood. Any more than that is not normal/very rare. On average women lose about 6-9 tablespoons of blood/fluid.

148 - not mostly eggs. That would be like caviar in your panties, which in my humble opinion, would be even grosser than blood. You only lose one egg or possibly a few in each cycle. It's mostly endomeitrium, which contains a lot of blood.

That's not true for everyone...I'm on birth control and the actual bleeding part of my period only lasts about two days and I have to use the smallest tampon size because it's so little blood. And even before I was n birth control I didn't bleed like a slaughtered pig or anything o.O

And it's true that in the 2-7 days a period usually lasts you should not lose more than a cup of "blood"...and if you do on a regular basis you may wanna get that checked out.

#66, normally I would agree with someone who points out retarded spelling. But when someone as FUCKING STUPID as you comes a long, all high and mighty, and corrects a word SPELT CORRECTLY and is an absolute ASS FUCK COCK SHITTER about it, to you i say:


  DesireeGray  |  0

Darling, be happy you got yours so late! (That's if that was your first one) There such a nuisance, and you feel all ... dirty isn't the right word but something similar. I've had about 68 periods, and trust me I wish I started later in life. I got mine four weeks before my eleventh birthday! :(

... and for everyone saying that its odd that she started so late, it's really not uncommon. My great nan was nine when she got hers. My best-friend was nearly fifteen. My ex-best-friend was a couple of weeks off her tenth birthday. Most girls average between 11-17, so it's not really bad at all. Stop panicking people.

It sucks, but shit happens. Trust me you'll get over the phobia. Don't try and hide from it by using The Pill or Tampons, your better off exposing yourself and dealing with it. I doubt you will be *too* traumatized by the end of the first week. It's not the most pleasant of sights, but it's not the end of the world.

Good luck :)

wth she spelled it as Sight. get a life #66.
Anyways, you can probably find counseling or treatment for that. i honestly think that the first few times will be horrible but with repetition of seeing it you will become used to it and it wont freak you out as much anymore.
try tampons at least its better than seeing whats in a pad, u can dispose of tampons right away without looking.

you are clearly male. Go back to primary school and learn basic human reproduction. Do you even know what a period is? It is NOT the ovaries coming out (holy geez you'd end up in hospital if that happened), it's the egg - ALONG WITH the uterus lining WHICH INCLUDES BLOOD.

  jensmlyons1  |  0

Easy for you to say. You MUST be a guy, because periods cause you to lose A LOT of bloody. Your ovaries don't leave your body. You only have TWO. It's the single egg that leaves your body.

  jensmlyons1  |  0

You're obviously a guy, because periods do, in fact, cause a woman to lose a lot of blood, since the uterine lining is mostly blood. The ovaries don't leave the body, since there are only two anyway. It's the single egg that leaves, every 28 days.

  Blazikengirl  |  4

Idiot, don't try to talk about something you don't know.

I would love to see the day when ovaries come out instead of eggs, and there can be alot of blood from periods.

  luvppl  |  6

I just LOVE how you think you know this and you are a dude... and you are not surprisingly WRONG because it varies... you have no credibility in this area so shut up please! thanks!

  1two3four5six  |  23

most of the stuff isn't blood, its just "vaginal discharge" (quotation marks because it sounds all doctory). you only lose about 2 teaspoons full, i read it on KidsHealth.com when i got my period

  fmlwinnn  |  0

OP, it's fine. There really isn't a lot of blood involved in periods. It's mostly the fluids of the egg and the uterus. Remember, menstruation is the shedding of the uterus, not when blood comes out of a womans vagina. If that were so, we'd all be anemic.

#46 That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. If she was pregnant, she wouldn't have posted this FML as she would not have gotten her period. And where does it say that she has never gotten her period before? I'm 16 and got my period when I was 12, but I'm still "expecting hundreds of periods to come." Even if she hasn't gotten hers, that's normal. Some girls get it early, others get it late. Some factors could be that she is slightly underweight, or it's just genetic that the women in her family start menstruating later on in their teens.


There's nothing wrong with getting it as an older teen, though it is unusual these days. Studies show girls are getting their periods younger and younger these days. The fact that some 9 year olds are able to get pregnant is kinda disturbing.

  eastmanwolf  |  0

I don't know if it would be better to get it later because mine took a few years to regulate itself. But since I got it when I was 11, I was fine by high school and I had already learned how to deal with that stuff.

  ChiliRamen  |  0

there are records of a 5 year old giving birth, so if its possible for one so young to get her period, its certainly possible for a 16 year old to NOT get one.

  Puolukka  |  4

I agree with bitski60 (#14), I do too pass out at the sight of "regular" blood if I don't lay down fast enough...period blood however does in no way resemble the blood that shows when you cut or hurt yourself...I never had a problem with period blood either.

And she's right you have no other choice but to suck it up or deal with it...even if you get on birth control, if you ever plan on having children you'll have to get off it, meaning you'll start bleeding again...

  Ligerie  |  0

Getting your period is normal from ages 8-17. So that means some people get it younger and some get it older. Just because you got it at x age doesn't mean every person gets it then. Most people will get it around 12 years old.


really? a fuckin 5 year old? for one, i'd like to see a link to that "documentation" because im pretty sure a 5 year olds body would NOT be able to carry a baby to full term; and two, whoever would fuck a 5 year old deserves to be castrated and dipped in acid.

  angela3222  |  0

A five year old cannot have a baby because you need to hit puberty or have your period to actually get pregnant. The youngest a girl can get her period is around the ages of 8-16.

  HawK2k9  |  0

Well maybe she has seen blood but seeing it again today reminded her that she has years of periodness ahead of her...That's a hell of a lot of puking =D

  zolziski  |  11

Maybe she's seen blood before, but her issue is with her own blood. I had a friend who could handle blood as long as it wasn't his own. I also had a friend who was the opposite. If it wasn't his own he'd freak out.

Insensitive much? I don't throw up at the sight of blood, but I'm still hemophobic. There are people out there with fears of stupid things like socks. I think being scared of blood seems pretty OK in comparison.

By  FueltotheFire  |  0

Sweetie, its spelled 'sight'. And YDI for having your ovaries die (feed them or something?). Im smart, because I dont get my period...why you ask? I just get pregnant instead, duh.

  CL41RE  |  0

What do you mean 100 Internets? And I think... You are talking about pokemon? I don't know. My brother plays it and has something to do with events.

Wow, it's not like your tampon will gush blood when you pull it out.. You get like less than 1/2 cup of blood through out your whole week long cycle..

OR !!
