Poll Results: At what age did you start your period?
Most of my friends started around 12-13; it was 13 for me. And my mother hadn't told me anything about it - I knew about it from health class, but I had no idea where in the house she kept the supplies so I was relegated to toilet paper that first go round because I was too embarrassed to ask!
I was a late starter-15years old. I always wondered if this meant i would be fertile longer. I had a baby at almost 45, but it did take me over a year to conceive her (in contrast to 2 other children, conceived in my late 30s and early 40s) I dont know why i started late. My mother also started at 15. It could be genetic, or it could be related to total body fat. I was athletic...
My first period had been the month before -- I was roller skating on the street outside my house and kept just coming inside to change my underwear until my aunt (who was babysitting me) noticed the pile of underwear and clued me in about what was happening. I knew all about periods, but for some reason I didn't connect the knowledge with what I was experiencing!
I was 12, almost 13...a few months before the end of grade seven.
I spent a lot of time at Expo that year. Who knows? Maybe we watched fireworks together.
