22 Women Share Their Horror Stories About Getting Their First Period

22. I suddenly felt a gush of sticky liquid!

“I was at school (this was my first period) and I suddenly felt a gush of sticky liquid! I was like…crap! At first I thought it was just going to be a lot of discharge. So I asked my teacher to go to the bathroom. And ‘down there’ was slightly red through my jeans and I freaked out! I went to look and see and it was my period so I went to the nurse to get a pad from her and she gave another pair of underwear. I was like what about my jeans?! So luckily I had a hoodie that I tied around my waist and that luckily covered up the red spot!”
