menstruation questionnaire

  menstruation questionnaire response 77

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

  12. I came home from school and went to the bathroom, i thought I pooped my pants. I knew what to expect when it happened.

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

  I told my mom. I felt happy on the inside but I didn't want to tell my mom because I was not close with her.

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

  pads but I asked for tampons the next day. I learned by reading the package.

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

  Nope. I use cloth pads, diva cups, tampons, sponges, and rarely disposable pads. I prefer tampons most days but I try to be environmentally friendly.

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

  I experience all of the above. I use heating pads, acne cream, and I massage my breasts.

do you feel emotional changes relating to where you are in your menstrual cycle?
  yes! I am always a little blue the week before and then happy after.

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

  most are understanding, I am open about it

this conversation makes me think....

  how wonderful a period is.
