How do you say you had your period to your mother?

To make it less awkward I have a friend who started her period but if I tell my mom she will tell everyone and they are like "OMG she's too young!" Please dont ask how old i am im turning 15 in April 19. And my mom will be like really emotional. One time I tried to swallow a pill I wasn't supposed to and she got all emotional on me and she promised not to tell my dad but dang! This is my period SHE MIGHT TELL ANYONE I need some help.

My mom did the same thing! She called like every family member and family friend and told them! I was so embarrassed. When I started my period, I didn't even tell anyone until like the fifth time I got it. I was just like 'uh, mom, I started my period'. She didn't even say anything about it, she just gave me some pads and stuff. Then she told like everyone. Now when I'm on it, I never tell her. She'll just bring me 'female products' whenever she gets them for herself. My advice would be to just tell her, and ask her if she will just keep the news to herself. Good luck!

my mom's also kinda a blabbermouth, so whenever i have to tell her something that i dont want her to tell anyone else i kinda make her feel guilty by saying things like "i shouldnt tell you cuz you will go and say it to your friends, u always do, u couldn't keep a secret for your life". its kinda like a reverse psychology thing, telling her she cant keep it secret will make her want to. i know, its not the best thing to do to your mom but theres not much options

You think 15 is too young? I have a cousin and she started hers at 11.It shouldn't be a big deal to tell your mom' " hey I started my period."

My friend was 8 when she started her period. I can't imagine what trouble she had.

You aren't too young, in fact you are in the older range. Tell her and make sure she knows you would appreciate if she could refrain from announcing it because it is personal and not up for discussion, figure out how to get the message across nicely and then change the subject, don't dwell.

you get paper towels then you crumple it into a ball then you shove it up there for about 2 years, then when your old enough you can tell your mom now
