Writing on menstrual pain is painful!
Remembering the first time we got our periods is even worse. Those emotions of being in pain, scared, confused, helpless is a kinda uniform experience for most women. Thinking why do they come visit us every month and wishing our bodies to be designed in a manner that we meet them once in 6 months!
Well, here are six celebrities who will share their first period stories which might make your pain sound less.
Period +White clothes = Ouch!
Miley Cyrus shares one of the biggest disasters one can have while having periods! “It was so embarrassing, but I couldn’t leave,” she told Marie Claire about the first time she got her period while filming Hannah Montana. “And I was crying, begging my mom, ‘You’re going to have to put the tampon in. I have to be on set.”
Periods ho toh problem na ho toh problem!
Mindy Kaling is one such person! She felt something wrong about her body and became insecure because all her friends got their way before her. “I started menstruating in ninth grade,” Mindy wrote in an open letter featured in Rookie Yearbook Two. “I spent all of the eighth grade faking that I had my period, down to sticking Kotex in my underwear in case anyone needed proof.” (Girl, you are not alone!)
When we train the men for emergencies!
Kim recalled that she got her first period at a movie theater. “I was with Rob and [Caitlin], and we had just come back from riding horses for Khloé’s birthday. And I just didn’t know what to do.” Khloé added: “Kim and I were both with Rob when we first got our periods…it probably scarred him for life!” Khloé wrote on her blog. “He can pretty much handle anything now—he’s totally going to be that husband buying tampons for his wife.” We’ll have to check with Chyna about that one!
School periods and all that drama!
Jessica Biel told glamour.com she got her first period in fifth grade. “I was in a school play, wearing a gray beard and this pad the size of a skateboard and thinking, What is happening to me?”
When you are the first girl to have periods in your class and you are helpless AF!
Kelly Clarkson was in fourth grade when she started menstruating, which made her the first girl in her class. “It was the most insecure moment of my life. I was completely mortified,” she shared with J-14. “I didn’t have anything for that! No one could help me! I had no girls to talk to because no one had started. It was horrifying! I had to make sure that nothing was on me. It was a lot to deal with in elementary school.”
If only we all could be so lucky!
Keke Palmer had a much more enthusiastic reaction when she got her first period. She told Twist: “I was like, ‘I got my period! Whoa!’ I was through the roof! I was just like so excited.” Palmer explained that her older sister was her period guru, showing her the way.
