Today, if it wasn't already embarrassing enough to tell my boyfriend I was on my period, I had to explain what a period is in the first place, how it works, and why it means nothing can happen during that time of the month. He's twenty. FML

Oh. No sex while the woman is on her period? Well, it never stopped me...

you shouldn't feel embarassed for telling him. he should be embarassed for not knowing what a period is.

Ydi for being twelve and dating a 20 year old retard. Dafp!

wow i would dump that fool for not knowing anything about a womans body, hes a grown man!....does he even know how babies are made?? WTF 

Damn, talk about unsociable. It seems like the guy isn't even in this world. YDI for having a retarded boyfriend.

exactly what 7 said. hahahah. he's a retard. has he never had any sisters, a mom, or q girlfriend before?

just squirt a little on his face, show him how it works. the best lessons in life are hands on.

I dated a guy who knew vaguely about periods, but not why or how it happened. He was 18 at the time. He had also been home schooled up until our Junior year of high school. It doesn't seem too far-fetched to me for a guy to not know anything v

probably. I had a friend who at 19 had no idea that women had two seperate holes, one for urinating and one for baby making. some men are pathetically ignorant, boo.

I'd like to attend this seminar as well cos apparently I've been breaking some rules.

I agree with #4... HE should be embarassed... not you. and maybe he should go back to 6th grade...

comment disappeared... boyfriend's an idiot, or simply brought up as VERY innocent. makes you think he doesn't know much. he should be embarrased? nah

have you ever given any guy redwings

26, agree. My last gf was glad to hear me say, "Let's just put a towel down."

okay...has anyone ever taken a bio course? the bleeding part means the egg is dead and leaving cause it wasn't fertilized. Having sex two weeks from end of the flow phase is the riskiest. Look it up ;D

i don't see what's so embarrassing about telling your boyfriend that you're on your period

debiasio69696969 0

Not sex slave though if we're gonna have a threesome , we gotta do it right! ;) I don't think 99 pounds is fat =(

#7 how do u no she's twelve. just because she's having a period doesn't mean it's the first one she's gotten

I bet you if you used visual teaching methods too, he'll never forget your lesson.

Are you saying that you're 99 pounds? I have a cousin that's as thin as you are, and she's 5'4 and 115 pounds. how tall are you?

epoh_fml 0

99lbs would be incredibly thin for a woman who is 5'3" or 5'4". I'm 5'4" and typically weigh around 115. I dropped to 105 after the birth of my second born and everyone thought I had an eating disorder :/

48- yes im taking AP biology and if i do remember correctly it's safe to have unprotected sex a couple days before a female's menstrual cycle, in case any sperm is close to reaching the egg, the menstrual cycle will have disposed of the egg meaning that the sperm won't be able to penetrate the egg. so by the week after a woman's period she begins to ovulate releasing the old egg and creating a new one i guess making it easier for her to get pregnant. well at least i think this is how it goes

debiasio69696969 0

fck lol I meant 116 .. i'm 116 pounds , 5"7 .. my jeans , shirt , hoodie's size have been the same for years now

Dungeons and Dragons is that awesome (:

OP is retarded. Nothing can happen? My fiancé has no problems laying a towel down. ;)

lol me and my friends try to guess when a girls on her period then mess with them. were 13. thts really sad was he like sheltered/homeschooled/retarded?

77 - When a woman ovulates, she is releasing a NEW egg from the ovary. it needs to be fertilized while is going down the Fallopian tube, otherwise it fails to implant in the Uterine lining and will cease to remain potent. This takes place within one day. therefore, there is only one day in which a woman can actually become pregnant. Sperm, however, can survive in the Uterus for up to 3 days, making it risky to have unprotected sex the week you ovulate, due to it being nigh impossible to predict the release of an egg and plan intercourse accordingly. There are a lot of physical signs as to ovulation that could be used, but most women are unaware of them as being such, because it's pretty much what makes them want sex. When you begin menstruating, the Uterine lining and unfertilized egg are disposed of. Ovulation also does not always occur two weeks after finishing menstruating. it depends on the woman. Fun fact: A woman is born with all the eggs she will ever release, unlike men, who continually create new sperm. (: If you really took AP Biology, pay more attention. (Granted, I learned this in Health class and Worth The Wait seminars in my basic science classes in middle school, so maybe you should just pay more attention in general.)

People from all over make fun of the US. They say we're closed minded & arrogant. At least we are taught proper sex ed. o.o

bARbi3_d0Ll 0

109- i tried to but i gave up on that class so im not suprised you know more than me

In Germany you start sex ed in second grade.

Sex on a girls period is good, why can "nothing happen"?

Easy ladies, a mans understanding of metapause is on par with his understanding of astro physics, give the poor guy a break

I think what the OP means is that she doesn't want sex while on her period, not that it's not possible. Her bf was probably like, "so...why can't we have it then?" she likely knows it's possible, but just doesn't want it.

orgyz 0

YDI, for dating an idiot. I mean, seriously? I'm surprised he even knows what "sex" is.

kcodner 0

not saying your fat at all but your definitely not 100 pounds that's for sure! or else you'd be very unhealthy

someone2me2 1

Yea, cos every guy makes it his lifes mission to learn how lady parts work. We like them to touch and look at and put our penises in, but who which guy would really care?!

44 gtfo you conceited ass. no one gives a shit if you're dating. especially if you're comunicating on FML.

op would you rather him have slept with so many other women before in his lifetime? you should be happy he's pure and innocent, unless girls have no value of chastity.

The guy doesn't know what a period is. But he knows about sex? Kinda stupid  idk I'm just sayin.

Crotcho_fml 0

lol he's gotta be pulling her leg

@#137: because they can get pregant. :) So unless that's the plan, it's courteous to have a basic understanding of how to avoid it. And if it IS the plan, it'll probably be handy to know how it works, too. @ the people saying that it's possible to have sex on your period, some prefer not to, it's a preference rather than a poor understanding of Biology. @ the people asking why she would be embarrassed, women are taught that their bodies are icky, and should function to provide sex for menfolk, so when you're on your period your body is extra icky, and the fact that not having sex is a preference rather than a necessity means there's guilt if you say no. Bitta pop-psychology for you there!

it's possible he grew up in a conservative home with no sisters and a mother with shame -_-

I don't know how it is in America, or other schools even, but at our school when the tampax woman came to talk to us about sex ed, the girls and boys were segregated. But even then there was gossip about what went on in each lesson (cue lots of childish giggling and blushing furiously at the sight of pads/ condoms). But then maybe he went to an all boys school and never took biology/ had no sisters.

lol I know wat that is and u don't wanna know how old I am

#68 jeez do i have to spell it out for u. she was calling the op 12 because the op was too embarrassed to admit that she was on her period (&12 yr olds r so immature that they're embarrased of their own periods). duh u dumbass.

#151 u used the word "icky" like 4-yr-old. therefore, your argument is INVALID. now stfu...

#143, There's a fine between being pure and innocent, and lacking knowledge of basic human biology. No 20 year old should need an explanation of what a period is.

#109 totally true i had to learn all this again in anatomy (omg so detailed) and i was like damn but fo real y would u not know wat a period is? At 20? that's messed up, dang middle school kids prolly know this cuz of their parent and siblings...

Wow. Educational systems are beginning to get frightening.

jamesSIII 0

I believe she's reffering to having sex. Which is funny, because she is embarrased still to have to tell her boyfriend that she's on her period. OP, you're from London. I have the urge to ask you what high school your boyfriend attended.

^london, so you ask what secondary school/college he went to

Yeah, I had to do the same with my boyfriend. He's 15 though, I'm 17. I don't know if that's a valid excuse for him not to know though, lol.

hha did you go into detail of what happens, why, why you cramp and how tampons work? =) all my guy friends are very well-educated if you cnt tell.

jett_0621 0

Wow you look very cute and you have beautiful eyes haha. ^^ Sorry for being out of topic. Anyway, I bet your boyfriend didn't have a girlfriend since he's 10 or something, cuz seriously?! A 20 y.o doesn't know what a period is?! lol.

Comment moderated for rule-breaking.

Show it anyway

Coming from the one who can't spell or use full words like "you".

And from someone that used a full stop before an exclamation mark. Twice!

Also, they can't spell apparently or enough.

good job parents. way to depend on a horrible public school system to do your job.

the STATE school system in Britain is brilliant, don't judge all countries on how shit America is

Hey dickweed, you don't know if that commenter is even from America. Stop being a British stereotype. Suck my American dick.

linamerri 0

lol he'd probably choke and die on American dick

91: nowhere else calse it the public school system. Everywhere outside North America it's called the State school system. OK, I admit, he may be Canadian. something tells me he's not though. or she. fair enough

he's also a cheerio since he's from the uk

Being gay has nothing to do with knowledge about the menstrual cycle.
