I believe my first period was when I was about 13 and I lived with my dad and my brother. Nothing had really been taught to us in school about periods and what different products were available and what different periods would be like more so about the general biology of a female and reproductive systems.
My periods growing up were always extremely painful , could leave me upset and were non consistent. I assumed it was normal as i didn’t really know any different.
I never really knew why until it got to a point in my late teens when I thought enough is enough and went to a health professional .
I found out I had PCOS and went private to find out more. I wish I would of known about this earlier to know the signs of it and what to look out for . I think people should be more educated on period products and signs of irregularity.
Also the price of period products is quite high , these should be reduced.
