    @MissMfutureMrsB:  I was 15. Had been wanting it to happen for a couple of years as it was like a mark of becoming mature. I then realised what a pain in the bum they can be

    I got mine the autumn after my 12th birthday. I’ve always been really regular, and I’m grateful that my Implanon makes them lighter. 🙂

    I was in grade 5- so about 10 years old. My periods were so heavy- it was awful. Brutal cramps etc. I used massive pads- didn’t start tampons until I was 16!

    I also had it at 11, during a family vacation… my mom was running around telling everybody and my aunt brought me a box of pads. UGH!!

    I was about 11. I kinda expected as much, my mom and sister got theirs around 12 so I figured it was coming.  Plus I was already going through other aspects of puberty so it was just like “ok, so now this is happening.”  Not a big deal to me at all, but it also started the first time when I was at home (and I knew where my mom and sister kept their tampons so I was good to go) and I can see how it starting at school or something would have been much more uncomfortable.
