Seriously.

I know I was around 12-13. I know I was wearing overalls the day I found out, which is a strange thing to remember. We had the talk and we already had pads in the house at the ready, so it was a matter of telling my mom, her saying "well, congrats" and moving on.

Exactly this. First time was 12 but I didn't have another one til quite a bit later. I've always had this problem. I have spoken with my doctor about it and am going to have some testing done when I can afford it.

I think it was the summer before grade 9, so I would have been 13 or just turned 14. I was one of the last of my friends.

My periods were crazy irregular before I was on BC, so it was a few months until I got my second.

I have no idea. I know I was in middle school, and I don't think I was as young as 12, so...13?

I'm not heavy-set by any means, but I'm not a slender willow, either. When I was born I was in the 90th percentile for my weight. I've never been slender and never will be slender.

It's a life changing experience! Lol I don't know why I remember. It was a huge topic of conversation amongst my friends in like 5th/6th grade which probably helps. I'm sure I have it written in a diary somewhere too lol.

Also add I'm not like, bean pole size but I've always been a normal healthy weight. I think genetics (ie, my mom and sisters were all 12ish too) contributed more than my weight.

11 or 12; 6th grade anyway. It was always super awkward having to ask to go to the restroom and trying to stuff a pad in my pocket without my classmates noticing. I've been as regular as a clock since the first one.
