menstruation questionnaire

  menstruation questionnaire response 73

how old were you when you first got your period, what was it like, and what did you know about what to expect?

  I was later than my friends, 14. I remember lying to my 3 best friends and saying I had it because they all already did.

how did you feel about it, and who did you tell about it?

  My sister, then my mom

what menstrual product did you start with? how did you learn about it?

  padds, my mom had them at home

are you still using the same method to deal with the blood; what methods have you tried; which do you prefer and why?

  no, I only use tampons now, I find them much more comfortable

do you experience cramps, bloating, soar breasts, get pimples...? - if you do, tell us about it, and also, what remedies do you use?

  Sometimes cramps. But a few days before my period starts I always feel a bit emotional and depressed

do you feel emotional changes relating to where you are in your menstrual cycle?
  only before hand. sometimes Im quick to get offended, cranky or depressed

how do the men in your life relate to your period, or periods in general?

  My new boyfriend is very sympathetic. When I go my period the first time after we started having sex, I wasked him if he was ok with having sex while i was on my period. He was surprised and told me he didn't know that a lot of guys didn't like it, and thought that it was mostly girls who didnt like to have sex on their periods. He doesnt care. My dad doesnt like to talk about it and gets freaked out if there are tampons in the trash.

this conversation makes me think....

  being a woman is awesome!
