My First Period Disaster

My First Period Disaster


Summer break was right around the corner, and my school had decided to throw an end-of-the-year middle-school party to
celebrate all of our accomplishments. It was the day before the party, and during
lunch period, me and my friends were all talking about what we would wear, who was going, etc. As we talked, I remember having some painful stomach cramps, but
blamed it on the cafeteria food and thought nothing of it. When the school
day was finally over and I was at home, I was rummaging in my closet for something nice to wear for the party and decided on a nice casual white dress.
Unfortunately, my cramps came back while I was helping my mom with dinner, but
once again, I ignored them. The following morning, I woke up and began getting
ready. It was a Saturday, on the day of the party, and I was a bit nervous since
so many people are planning to go. But I tried to focus on the positives. While I
was in my mom’s car driving to the school, my cramps once again came
back. I told my mom, but she reassured me I would be fine and it was just the
butterflies in my stomach. I decided to deal with it and go to the party anyway.
Once I arrived, my mom waved me goodbye and I saw my friends standing by the
school gym entrance. They complimented my dress and we headed inside the large gym, barely managing to get through the large crowds of middle schoolers. The gym
itself was decorated with colorful banners and was packed with kids.
My friends explained that they were going to say hi to some others,
so me and my friend, Katie, stayed and just moved around. Suddenly, I heard some kids laughing behind me and Katie’s eyes widened as she stared down at me and
whispered, “Mal, look down!” Nervously, I lowered my head and saw that my legs and
my dress were covered in blood. As a sixth grader who had just got
their first period, I slowly looked around and realized everyone was staring
and laughing at me. I felt my face turning red and Katie quickly snatched
me and ran out of the gym. My other friends followed us to the bathroom and
we handled the situation by getting me a pad and calling my mom. I was so
embarrassed. My mom picked me up, and while I was in
the car, I checked my snapchat to see if anyone had posted anything about the
party. I was upset to find that some of the kids I had added as friends and
actually trusted took a picture of me and tagged me on their stories. I felt
awful and unfriended them, but knew they were probably talking about me back at
that party. When we got home, my mom wanted to make me feel better, so we
ordered pizza, watched the movies and joked about what happened back at that party.
Overall, it made me feel better and I learned two things from this experience.
One is to always have some friends that will have your back and will not make
fun of you, and two – always have some pads with you.

  1. Oh gosh I can totally relate 😢, but not like party at school, and luckily I have my friend, so it was when our lunch time and when I walked out my friend was like "oh my, you have a stain of blood" luckily my other friend had a spare clothe and I used them to cover the stain on my skirt

  2. Omg first of all you dont get a blood period on your first period its brown stuff and all my girls that have got it will know and you dont get a super heavy and bloody period on your first period

    Rule number 1) Never wear a white dress
    Rule number 2) Sucks for girls that make fun of you because they are going to get it to.. then laugh at them

  11. Let's get this straight

    1. She's in 6th grade
    2. She's getting lots of cramps.
    3. Told her mom about it once. And told her that it's PROBABLY BUTTERFLYS
    4. SHE WORE A WHITE DRESS OF ALL THE COLORS OF DRESSES SHE MIGHT HAVE.

    HOW DID SHE ANDHER MUM NOT EVEN KNOW THAT SHE WAS GOING TO HAVE HER FIRST PERIOD.
