Quoted from MJB


Stephanie, you're doing it again .... a period is NOT a problem.... it's something you've gotta live with - for a long long time - get used to it eh?????




Um, sorry Maxine but if you are annoyed it should be at me. The periods themselves are not a problem (for most), but where to turn for basic advice can be. I can still remember being shouted at by my mum for the way I was disposing of the soiled things, when I had no idea what I was supposed to do. My mum was far too embarrased to show me how to use tampons and I had no sisters or close friends that I felt I could ask about this stuff...
Anyway, that was why I suggested to Stephanie that she put questions like this down here rather than on the main forum... If you feel that was not appropriate, then sorry.

It's the fact that she keeps saying "problems, like periods" FFS, every woman in the world has periods; and doesn't call them a problem.... well, one or two do (as has been proven on here)

Frankly, yes, they are an inconvenience at times, but I don't understand why such a big deal is being made about them; so if you'd like me to be annoyed at you as well Sandra I will .... no big deal to me.....  

A period proves your body is working properly.....!!!!

I'm sorry Maxine, I really am. I do this only because people have told me to and because I feel I still need some sort of help over the whole thing, because I feel it's quite new to me. I also ask for help about this on this thread is because I'm the I find it hard to tell my new step-mum about this and I also find it hard to talk to boys about this, so really I feel as though I'm having to find out for myself. I understand that you might be angry at me Maxine and I'm sorry about it, but I feel it's what I should do.

Do you both really think that you should be discussing periods and health issues on here at all???

Frankly, I think the best piece of advice would be to go to your Doctor if it's that much of an issue Stephanie - though I really fail to understand why *shrug*

Periods were never a problem to me, or any of my firends or peers, at 12/13 cos we had stuff in primary school which guided us... and there's far more sex education and stuff in schools now than there was then.

IMHO a public forum like this is not really the place to plaster pages and pages of stuff about periods and the like...

Too much information and all that - and I bet the guys love it!

It has to be said that I can see both sides of this arguement.

I know you`re a youngster Stephanie,and will need guidance in many,many things as you grow older.(heaven knows,it does`nt even stop when you`re an adult)

But Maxine`s right in saying that your GP will help if your periods are problematic.  And there are so many ways nowadays,that you can educate yourself,as I`m sure you know.If going to your step-mum does`nt feel right for you.

My daughter is your age,and thankfully,periods are`nt a problem to her.

Also,the point that was made a while back... why not try web sites that cater for your age group? You`ll find this topic comes up on those sites daily,maybe get a few tips from that.
