My first period.
Story: It was 8th period and class was almost over, meaning school was almost over. I had HORRIBLE cramps and was on the verge of crying. I kept saying my stomach hurt not once did I think it was my period. My dad suggested it but I 'knew' that wasn't it. Later that day around 5 or so I went to the restroom and it turned out it WAS my period.
When I told someone: I told my mom the next day (Saturday) after gymnastics practice.
What I used: I actually started out using tampons since I'm a gymnast.
What I use now: Still using tampons but pads at night or when I'[m lazy lol
How I'm doing now: My periods have been regular since day 1 so I'm doing fine, less cramping but much heavier!
