15 women describe their funniest and most embarrassing first-time period stories

Your first period is an inherently memorable experience– namely because one day, you’re not bleeding from your vagina, and the next day, you are. It’s like a really traumatic magic trick!

The experience is also ripe with the possibility for embarrassment, particularly because your 12-year-old self isn’t likely to have a tampon on hand. 

A group of women recently took to Whisper to divulge their hilariously ridiculous and embarrassing “first period” stories. Some of them are messy (ew), some are humiliating (mostly thanks to guys), and some are just downright confusing.

One thing’s for sure: embracing the full flower of woman-tude isn’t always glamorous.
