sorry guys, you probably don't qualify to answer this poll

In reaction to a description in a book of a girl's first period, I thought I'd take a poll - what was your first period like? (or if you don't remember, what was getting your period like during the earliest time period when you do remember?) (I believe I set it so identities are masked when people view results).

Poll #1446624 talkin' bout that menstruation

When you first got your period, how much did you bleed?

There was a little bit of spotting on my underwear
4(7.0%)
very lightly, something a thin pad easily took care of
17(29.8%)
definitely blood in a bleeding level of wetness
25(43.9%)
somewhat heavy bleeding
8(14.0%)
ZOMG I thought I was gonna die
3(5.3%)

When you first got your period, did you have cramps?

No, I never have had cramps
7(12.3%)
No, I didn't get cramps until later

When you first got your period, was there any nausea?

no, I didn't feel anything - the spots on my underwear were noticed when they went in the wash
20(35.1%)
not really. Weird feelings but not what I'd describe as nausea
30(52.6%)
Indeed. I didn't want to eat

Does talking about mentruation make you uncomfortable
