Period Stories: By Cycle

bicycle period story

When I was in junior high I used to go on bike rides with my grandparents. We would go on a 30 mile trail that would end at the beach, have lunch, then go back the 30 miles. During one of these trips is when my first period arrived. I thought I wet my pants so we went into a rest stop on the way. I called in my grandma because I had no idea what was going on. My grandma laughed it off since she knew I thought I was just losing all of my blood. She explained everything to me. We told my grandpa about it but it was closer to the beach than back to the car so onward with the cramps I went until we were in city limits again. I will never forget my first period! – Katie M.
