The Trampoline

“I was 11 when I got my first period and was playing with neighborhood friends, jumping on their trampoline. I bled through my shorts and my friend Josh saw it, thought I was hurt. I was a bit embarrassed but more irritated that I had to take a break from having fun to change my damn undies and shorts. Luckily, my mom and two older sisters prepared me well before so I knew where to find the stash of period products in the house. I was back to having fun within 5 minutes and it wasn’t a big deal.” ~Anonymous, Female, USA
