Re: a silly, but important prob

When mine first started, I had *no* pads whatsoever, and so I had to ask my mom. It was sooo embarassing, tho it really shouldnt have been. Because its not. It happens to everyone (all girls, anyway ). My mom was all like "Ooh, what kind of pads do you want??" and I would have rather used toilet paper than asked her. Asking at first was embarassing, but it got better. Now, I just yell across the house to my mom that I need pads, no matter who is home. You just need to take a deep breath, walk up to your mom, and say "I need pads." Simple as that
(btw, I keep to myself too and rarely talk to my mom about stuff like that)

Re: a silly, but important prob

Hi, and thank u for replying... I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who has to face embarrassment.. My friends at school have been started way before me and they are soo open and talk about it, but I'm like very very private and cant stand doing that... glad to know it gets easier...right now i would rather pay 100 dollars then go thru embarrassment...but really u are right why should it be any diff than askin for a pill for a headache or asking to go just a question that needs to be asked to move on with life.... so even though I will feel stupid (because my mom embarrasses me sometimes) I'll be like " mom my period has started back (because she prolly still thinks it hasnt started since before i was 14) can you pick up some more pads at walmart sometime?" because if i just said pads then she might think they are someother type (never mind that).. lol soo whenever it starts...I'll bite the bullet and go for it..i feel like a dork lol...

Re: a silly, but important prob

Well, all you really have to do is tell her it has started again and ask her to get you pads. She goes through the same exact thing every month, it's just a natural thing and it will get easier to discuss. Also, if your period continues to come at extremely odd intervals, you may need to see a gynocologist because you might have an irregular cycle.

Just be glad your first period didn't come like mine did. I was 12 and we were in a store. I went to the bathroom and there it was. I had to have my little sister get my mom so she could give me a pad.

Moms will say embarrassing things, but I'm sure they mean well. By the way, I'm 17, so I'm probably around your age.

Re: a silly, but important prob

I had the same problem. I HATED asking my mum for pads!

Before you ask her, just remind yourself that nothing bad can come of it. I mean, she isn't going to laugh at you and tell the guys at school what brand of pads you want or anything. Just build up your confidence and go "mum, I need some more pads".

Periods are perfectly normal, and although you feel embarrassed and awkward about it for a while, you will eventually get over it.

Re: a silly, but important prob

had the same thing... only mine skipped for nearly a year... but by the time it got back, i think once i had to have my mom buy them for me, other wise i picked them up when i was out... and i've had my driver's license for a while, which makes everything in general easier...

it's embarassing none the less... [and it's even stranger when you end up talking to your boyfriend about that stuffs... ], but after a time or two, talking about that sort of thing isn't as tough... [yeah, still don't talk to mymom about any of it...]

Re: a silly, but important prob

Thats why In never brough a girl over the house unless I knew it was serious. My mom alway said embarrising things and took them through the standard mother

Anyways, if its serious enough then I would have brought my ex's over.
