Thread: How old were you when you got your first AF?

  1. #1

    Red face How old were you when you got your first AF?

    Hi girls,

    (Mods - please move this if in wrong section)

    Just as a thought, and curiousity, at what age were you when you first received your periods?!!?



    I was FIRST DAY of year 10, aged 14yrs turning 15yrs. I think i was a late bloomer in that department as most of my friends at school got their periods when they were in year8 or year9!

    I hated getting them that early because i grew breasts before anyone else in my class and i also put on alot of weight

    I was an early bird. I got mine at age 10! I was mortified as i didn't know what was happening. My mum never really spoke to me about it before as i was young so she prob thought it was a way off yet. I dreaded it every month because i still didn't fully understand.

    wow, kimnastics it looks like you and i WERE late bloomers compared to other girls!! lol i didnt mind though... my younger sister got hers at age 16!!! mum was worried!

    Mum would give me a pencil case with pads in it and a spare pair of undies (black ones) to carry to school since year7 incase i got my periods and i always worried another school kid would find it and tease me!!! lol but noone never did thank goodness. but im so glad mum prepared me for it and on the day it happened, i had that pencil case

    Didn't have it in grade 7, and didn't have it when I started grade 8 but sometime in that year. I honestly don't remember my first one. School was so hard on me the teasing, ostracising...

    2 months off my 11th birthday..i remember getting them and at the time my mum had left my dad so he was trying to *look* after me...but in the end spoke to my big sis and she helped me deal with this 'tragic' thing that kept returning each month!!

    I remember one day in yr 6..had the worst cramps....got home to find the back of my yellow dress painted with blood....man i was embarrassed

    I was early in every department...boobies were huge by yr 6...

    Got mine mid year of Grade 7 which would of made me 12. I remember I was lucky enough to be on school holidays so was able to get over the "shock" of it without worrying about what to do while at school. I remember being terrified!!

    Mid year 7, so around 12/13. I woke up with it, and was way too scared to tell my mum, so snuck into her bathroom and stole pads. Then told her after school that day. She hadnt spoken to me about it, but i learnt all about it in sex ed, so glad id learnt about it somewhere at least!

    Both mum and i dreaded the day my sister got hers. She has a learning disability and usually doesnt understand pain and blood. But she has handled it really well, from what i know of...
