To be fair, that is not entirely wrong, considering a tampon works like a sponge anyway. I say A for effort.
Nice parenting... you'd think he would have done a quick Google at some point before she hit puberty.
39 - Yeah, but you're supposed to explain it to them BEFORE they get it, meaning you should be googling even before that. So even if you think they could get it between 11 and 15, you tell them about it at like 10. Of course OP's husband should just know because it's a fact of life but you know, ignoring that...
I'm glad my dad was brought up to not be embarrassed by periods. Made my mum's life easier, and meant less worry for me. I lost my mum, imagine having a father like in this FML if that happened! It's 2015, any good father should know the basics and be willing to learn.
tazloona are you a 12 year old boy? cuz I hate to break it to you but no girl really loves having to bleed through her bottom for days at an end And deal with the cramps that accompany that situation but guess what? nature made us that way. calling us disgusting is the same as saying a man's sperm is gross
My first period I just lay on a couch because the cramps were so bad until I went to the bathroom later and found my "surprise".
I was in the middle of a basketball game. I felt terrible but couldn't be taken out because I was 1 of the only 5 people on the team. Let's just say when I got to go to the bathroom after the game it was a disaster. Then I had to tell my dad because I couldn't find my mom.
I was 12 going on 13. I had been admitted to the hospital days earlier for a different reason and I was just sitting up in my bed. No cramps but I was feeling uncomfortable. I removed the covers to look for something and noticed I was sitting in a pool of my own blood.
Ugh. Nice to know I'm not the only one. I cramped for days before that first period, and I was eight years old, sitting in my third grade classroom during state testing, so I couldn't leave the room until the whole class finished. When I did find it, the nurse refused to believe me because I was young.
I had my first right after I turned 11. Thankfully, it was a weekend, so I didn't have to deal with other kids at school seeing it (because they would've undoubtedly made fun of me for it), but I was home alone with my 13 year old brother. Poor guy had no clue what to do.
I never had the puberty or sex talk so I never knew what a period was until I got mine.. My first time, which was in grade 6, I ran downstairs to the kitchen with my bloodstained PJ pants and told my mom I was bleeding from "down there".. My little brother wasn't too impressed that morning to say the least..
I was ten and before it hit I went to the hospital because I thought I had appendicitis. Sure enough that weekend I was at a friend's house when I went to the bathroom and yup it started. My friend was freaking out and didn't know what was wrong and why was I bleeding. I told her why. Then I shoved toilet paper down my pants and contuined on with the night. It was light and I didn't have cramps. Then the next day hit and omg I wanted to die.
Did dad not think to use Google? It really is a wonderful tool
