dear kate explaining first time periodYou may remember it more vividly than many other milestones in your life. You may cringe when you think about it or laugh or cry, or all of the above. It's that moment you're told you "become a woman, but in actuality, when you're just 11, 12, or 13, it probably feels a lot less spiritual than that. Yep, we're talkin' 'bout the first time you got your period.


In a viral video produced by women’s performance underwear brand Dear Kate, 20 women share their stories about the first time they got their period, and it will have you feeling ALL the feelings.

Oh, dear, how we can relate to so many of these women's tales of horror, embarrassment, confusion, etc. Like this chick.

And then, that first time you not only had to confront BLOOD in your underwear but all the trappings of that time of the month, like ... gigantic tampons.

Yeah, girl, I'm with you on that one. I remember my eyes popping out of their sockets when I first saw those. Like, whaaaat? How...? Okay, I'll just put this here, and walk away now.

And no doubt adults made a huge stink about the incident, causing you to react with all sorts of dumbfoundedness.


Thankfully, we made it out alive, and lived to tell our tales. No doubt we're very grateful that "first time" is now way, way behind us in the rear view mirror. Whew! But damn, if we aren't cooler, more colorful, and certainly stronger as a result of growing up as girls!

What was your "first time" like?
