Ever had a really embarrassing period experience? Did you tell anyone? What advice could you give others so it doesn't happen to them?

Leaky pad = guy drama

I had just started dating this guy that I'd had a crush on for almost 15 years and we were laying on his bed (no funny business, just laying there). I didn't use tampons at the time, and when this incident occurred, I'd had to buy cheap pads because the store was out of my preferred brand.

After about 30 minutes I felt like my pad was leaking. I jumped up and ran to the bathroom. When I got in there, I had a huge spot on my jeans. I calmly explained that I needed to go home and after seeing the spot on my jeans, the guy understood why.

Surprisingly enough, he called me the next day. I asked if his sheets were stained and he said they were but not badly. The next time I was over, I checked for myself and he had about a 2 inch circular stain on his sheets and that was after he'd washed them, luckily he had a mattress protector on the bed. If he hadn't been so understanding about it, I believe I would have died of embarrassment.

The moral of the story is never buy cheap pads!

First Period on Trip with Dad

My Dad is a truck driver and on summers off from school I went on trips with him.

The summer I turned 13, I was on a trip with my Dad and woke up from a nap to see that the sheets on the bunk, my pyjamas, and the blankets were covered in blood.

I tried to hide it but when we called my Mom from the road that night I had to ask her what to do because I wasn't prepared.

It made the rest of the trip REALLY uncomfortable.

Slippy Tampons?

It just so happened the week of my first period, we had a middle school class trip to Niagra Falls and Canada. When preparing for the trip, my Mom and I picked out some discreet plastic applicator tampons that I could easily carry in my pocket. Well, I should have reviewed the directions better. I was so frustrated because if I didn't walk with my thighs pressed together, the whole tampon slid out. What was going on?! After the trip and a gazillion tampons later, I figured out that I was supposed to push the tampon out of the applicator, not just use the little stick part to push the tampon and plastic applicator part inside. No wonder they slipped out and absorbed nothing! The whole trip my friends thought I'd lost it because I kept ducking into restrooms and walking like a little penguin.

I could have died!!!!

One of my most EMBARRASING situation was when I was in the 8th grade, my family and I was moving to another state and the last day of my old school, I had a lite yellow color skirt and at that age I didn't go to public restrooms that often, and I really didn't understand a whole lot about periods since I only had a couple of them at the time. At 3:30pm when I stepped down off the bus my mother was waiting for me and she ask me what was on the back of my skirt!!!I turned my skirt around a huge red spot!!!No one said nothing ALL Day long,friends,teachers no one.Thank God I would see none of them ever again!!!And that is just one of my most embarrasing situation.

You can laugh, it's okay

I was in High School in ROTC. We went on a sea cruise trip. I didn't think to pack any protection, and lo and behold I was on a boat for a week without it. I was too embarrassed to see if the ship's store had any or ask my friends. So I went to the bathroom a lot. BTW, TP does NOT work in substitution for tampons. I don't know if anyone noticed. No one said anything, thank goodness, and I don't want to know!

mirror, mirror on the wall.....

It was the last day of my period and I was barely spotting. I travelled to see my BF and before we got all hot and heavy I sneaked off to the bathroom to make sure I wasn't 'bleeding' and that the spotting had stopped. We were at a hotel, I left the bathroom door opened, the door had a mirror on it which reflect everything I was doing through the mirror on the dresser in the bedroom. In the midst of me checking myself, I looked up and realized my BF was lying on the bed watching the whole thing. I turned all shades in my face and closed the door. When i came out the bathroom, he laughed and called it live TV at its best. Needless to say, I had to explain my 'period' which I had told him would be He was really understanding inspite of it all, now I can laugh myself. Trying to prevent him finding out and totally embarrasing myself. But it was all good and we still had a fabulous weekend.
