Cost of womanhood
Cost of womanhood (1/1)

School is opening prepare we go for shopping.Please go ahead and pick what you will use.My daughter there is something you have missed let me get it for you.Mum there is something you brought what is it for..My daughter you are growing day in day out a driver can not drive without a spare will sanitary towels are your spare will.What do you mean mum? There these changes am seeing in you hips have enlarged,breasts and mild pimples .You are in class 7 you never know one time you might experience mild headache, nausea, stomache or backache you feel like urinating when in the toilet you blood stain.Dont cry but know am a grown up girl.It all depends on your hormones.Class Eight is when i discovered am grown up was happy during my first months but afterwards i experience mood swings, pain until i take buscopan to relieve stomach crumbs. When reading the bible if it was not for Eve eating the forbidden fruit i imagine women we would be undergoing menstrual and labour pain during pregnancy.The cost of womanhood not easy

Wow! Did your "period" came when you were 8 years? That was way to early. Sorry for such early experience, however I see your mother was very helpful and supportive with you, nice. You are welcome to world pulse and I look forward to reading more stories about you. Have a great day!

Thanks for sharing welcome on board great

Hello, Righarose,

I'm glad you accepted your biological change positively. I hear you on stomach cramps, mood swings, and more. I didn't take pain relievers as a child. It's only now that I am mothering my children.

Welcome to World Pulse! Thank you for sharing your story.
