Mom, I have my period," and "Mom, I need more pads," are simple statements. They are easier to say than you realize.
Talking to your mom about your personal female problems (including relationship issues) can feel a little embarrassing, especially if you aren't used to talking about such things. But your mom is a good place to start for a lot of reasons. Here are some ways to "break the ice" when talking to her about personal issues:
-Keep it casual. Maybe the idea of a sit-down with your mom seems intimidating. So, try opening the conversation casually by saying something like, "Hey mom, has your period ever lasted a really long time?" This opens the door to discussion.
-Write it down. If it is hard for you to start a face-to-face discussion, leave your mom a note where only she will find it. You could say something like "Mom, I am having a lot of pain with my periods lately. Can we talk about this tonight?" That way, she'll start the conversation with you and you won't have to worry about bringing it up.
-Be direct. You could take a straight-up approach and just tell her your feelings. Start by saying something like, "This is uncomfortable for me, but I need to talk to you about my period." That way you and your mom can get to the root of your problem right away.
Chances are she had similar questions when she was young and will be glad you asked her. But remember, if you don't feel comfortable talking to your mom, be sure to ask another female relative or trusted adult for help if you think you have a problem.
it's nothing to be ashamed of or anything like that! It's a good thing because you are becomming a woman and yes your mom is going to freak or maybe even cry because it's a thing that tells the mom that her baby is growing up and wants to be able to help you through it. Just tell her.
all I did when I got my period the FIRST time I just shouted to her "mom! come up here a minute please?" when she did I told her nice and calmly "mom... I think I have my period..." then she just said "really?!" and that was it...
Write her a note if you're uncomfortable. Just say hey mom could you pick up some pads/tampons at the store? she'll get it.
Welcome to woman hood. I would just have a conversation with your mom. You know that there is a huge responsibility on your part when it comes your sexuality. I know talking about sex and your period with your parents can be embarrassing but at the same time I would talk to your mom because she is the only one that will give you the best and honest advice. Good Luck and have a talk with your mom.
Don't worry I know how you feel, for me I just ran home (at a neighbors house and got my period) and was like mom my uhhh... and i pointed down and she knew what i was trying to say. Don't stress about it though! she'll understand. Congrats! just tell her you weren't sure how to say it earlier.
