Today, at a family reunion, my dad announced to everyone that I'd finally started my menstrual cycle. My grandmother started sobbing hysterically. FML

who would tell everyone you started your period? it's a private thing not something to have a party about


Gram Gram is crying because she's so proud of her little girl!

it's an exciting time in your life! Your grandma cried because you are growing up! this should have been something you had the chance to share with your grandmother though! Definitely not something your dad should be announcing!

At least he didn't tie a blood stained rag to the front door to let all the neighbours know too.

Sooo true. But Tamil Hindus actually celebrate it with this HUUUGE party and they invite everyone they know! Happened to me when I was younger, even...

Maybe the dad was drunk or almost drunk?and op didn't mention it?

whatever, some of the best parties I'VE been too were menstrual themed.

everytime someone in my family start their period someone tells the entire family. plus I think women in the family fond of exciting to tell cause getting your period means your a woman.

#52 is right. it's still awkward though with people knowing the fact that you're starting your cycles and maturity.

A woman that doesn't know your from you're.

I only told my mom when I got mine 'cause nobody wants to know that in my family....

#74.You haven't been to many parties have you

Your dad has no respect for your privacy, does he? I bet your grandma is just jealous because she has already hit menopause.

Or she's just proud? Congrats Op, welcome to years and years of bloating, cramps and everything else that comes with menstruation.

Jealous of OP having her period? Yeah, back pain and cramps are definitely a reason to get jealous!

I know I am a boy but I have heard that it is really bad. So It's not something to be jealous of.AFX_lovee is totally right.

No it isn't THAT bad unless your unlucky and get craps, back pain etc. It's just something all those noobs end up dealing with for 35 or so years.

101- Unless you've experienced having your period through some medical phenomenon, you have no idea how it feels.

i'm one of the lucky girls that have never experienced the cramps or even bloating, so i never really get why so many other girls complain about them to the extent that they do :/

101 - Why the hell are you saying periods don't hurt? You're a guy and unless you've had a sex change I don't know how you could possibly know what girls go through with their periods. I'm a guy and I've never heard a single girl tell me her periods no big deal. in fact they've all told me it's horrible. My gf goes through hell every month dealing with cramps, back pain, etc.

101 - Would you like me to kick you in the stomach repeatedly so that you know how my cramps feel? I'll gladly do that for free, Jackass.

I have a pretty high tolerance for pain because I got back surgery 4 years ago when I was 13 and have to deal with back pAin from it... And I still cry at least the first day I get it every month from the pain. I also throw up from it so that doesn't really help. My boyfriend usually has to basically babysit me while i have my period because I'm so lethargic, sick, and in too much pain to even know what's going on.
