    Slightly OT - I also remember being very shocked that I got underarm hair. Have no idea why as Mum had it. I thnk I just didn't realise that the models in magazines shaved/waxed. I just didn't think everyone got it LOL!!

    I was 9 and a half . I was at my grand mothers place, so I didn't tell anyone. I got my second one a few months later, told my mum who didn't tell me anything and sent me to school (grade 5) with tissues, because my oldest sister didn't have any pads etc, nice hey! Definately not the way I will handle it with my DD.

    I would have been 13. All my friends had theirs. I didn't tell my mum for years. It wasn't until she came out and asked me herself. She never talked about any of that stuff. She wa also one that never said I love you, or give hugs and kisses etc. Funny because she does to DS!!!

    I was 11 & was wearing a bra before I turned 12. I used to get AF so bad I couldn't move & had to miss school alot because of it. My older sister helped me (6 yrs older) & she also introduced me to tampons as mum only supplied the big old surfboards hahaha

    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
    ...
    My 2 younger sisters have learning disabilitys aswell but they have both managed to handle it really well aswell.

    The only issue my mum has with my sister when she gets it is she doesnt tell mum, so mum only finds out once her undies are soaked (She hasnt grasped putting a pad on herself)
    And unfortunately she cant go on the pill or anything to regulate her periods because she has epilepsy as well.

    Same here! I was in grade seven and some of the girls were really mean (all the time actually) and made fun of it. Mum didn't help much, so I used mum's razor as "I was too young to shave".

    I got them in the school holidays (January) between year 6 and year 7 so would have been 12.5, my twin sister got them later that year, about August I think, so she was 13.
    My Mum didn't get hers until she was 16, but then started menopause early at 40.

    I was twelve, and boobs came about the same time. HATED both. I didn't tell my mom for a very long time. Just snuck the pads down to my bathroom and washed any stained underwear by hand before throwing them in the laundry. I don't know why. Strange really. She had told me a little about it before hand, and I had read plenty myself, so I wasn't shocked or confused, but I still was absolutely mortified whenever it came. I hope I can find a way to make it easier on my DDs.

    I was 11, last day of grade 6. It's actually a funny story ( wasn't at the time of course ), I told my best friend and another overheard me and decided she would tell everyone! Ended up being a huge fight between all the grade 6 girls and half of us ended up in the principals office! When asked what it was all about I had to step forward and say, to the male prinicpal, 'I got my period and "she" told everyone"! How stupid! But I'll never forget that day, all those years ago.....
