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).
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: GO FALL IN A HOLE AND DIE YOU INBRED ASSFUCKING COCKSUCKING SHIT SWIMMER
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.
#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.
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...
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.
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 !! YOU COULD ALWAYS BECOME ANOREXIC AND DROP YOUR BMI TO SOMETHING REALLY LOW LIKE MAYBE 5 AND THEN YOU WONT GET ONE ANYMORE YEY
