I think that's just part of your period. I felt that way my first time too! I like didn't have control over my feelings and emotions. That's normal, though!

She's Preppygirl, the samuraiess. Or, at least that's what he's being for Halloween.

haha, no, I think not passage, cross dressing just isn't something i'm real keen on. Ellien, quite frankly, there are no gender restrictions on ask, and you probably should have noted my first sentence. "I have a rebellious streak a mile wide", so naturally, I had to answer this question even though I was told not to.

i like answering all questions i can, even if it involves periods and other odd things.
Report as
Even when it specifically says girlsonlygirlsonlygirlsonly 20 times?
Report as
Even if you put "girls only" there is no way to moniter and keep guys off. If you don't want them to see it, don't post it on Ask!
Report as
Thank you Carolyn. Guys tend to get very curious when it says girls only. And I am one of the many guys who will answer a question every time it says girls only. I live and I breathe for those questions.

Ugh! You mean you enjoy resistance
Report as
No, not enjoy resistance. But if a question says "(insert type of word here) only" or "no (type of person)", it's obvious that type of person is going to answer.
Report as
cutechica, I enjoy resistance, because as an "alpha male", it is in my very nature to fight potential threats and protect women and children, answering questions that women ask, falls under helping/protecting women, even if it says "girlsonlygirlsonlygirlsonly" 20,000 times, I would still answer this same question over and over, and over again, because it's an opportunity to offer assistance of some sort to someone in need.
Report as
Put simply, I will ask and answer questions as I please, because there is no authority that can actually prevent me from doing so
Report as
Hahaha alpha male. Translation, loves control and power. Most annoying and damaging type of male.
Report as
Actually, you apparently don't know what an alpha male is then. I don't care so much about controlling a situation or having a lot of power. If I am put in authority over a situation by someone who is above me on the chain, then yes, I will maintain control because that is my job, if I am given some sort of power, I do my best to use it responsibly. However, I need neither to survive. Your grave misunderstanding of what an alpha male actually is, probably comes from the lack of actual men around these days, and the overabundance of posers who are simply there to screw anything and everything that walks, and are controlled by the two little cells that they carry in a jockstrap. If you want to see an illustration of a real man that you could access anywhere, watch the live action film adaptation of Rurouni Kenshin, or the movie Heartbreak Ridge. Both illustrate a different sort of man, but both are undoubtedly alpha males, leaders and protectors. If you truly believe that an alpha male is the most damaging type, then you live a sad existence. The most damaging type of male Is not the alpha, but rather the gamma male, that guy who sits lazily in the back of a room, filled with self defeat, unable to protect or defend even the ground he stands on.

I'm a guy but I'm going to answer it anyway.

It might be since it's your first time, you're not used to people acting like this. A girl having her period is a really important event in a woman's life. It's the event that marks womanhood. Perhaps your grandmother talks a lot, or feels there are lots of things she wants you to know about it?

As samurai said, though, tell her you're not really comfortable talking about it.

The first time you have your period is always nerve wracking and it will get better. You just need to know that your grandmother loves you and went through it also. She knows what it's like so just tell her you don't feel comfortable with it right now and after a few months she will try again letting you get used to it. She is trying to tell you the things you need to know do don't blow her off. And at least she didn't get on the phone right away and tell every woman in your family like my mom did..... That was not ok. -__-

Alright. Thanks.

And don't tell her you don't want to talk about it at all. You still need to learn about it. Either ask her to get all of the convo done in one day(so you don't have to continue talking about it), or ask her to take you to the doctor so she can teach you everything. It may be less awkward with a professional.

Periods are known to every adult woman. Your grandmother probably knows more about them than you could guess. She also knows that you probably feels embarrassed because you are new to this. Just remember that though she is probably old now, she has been all through this and understands. You will relax about it after a few months.

relax! your grandma is an expert on this and shes trying to help you out, anyways being on your period changes your moods, so you might get a little crabby.

It's just because it was your first time. Remember that it happens to ALL girls. Besides your grandma definitely has experience with dealing with the issue. Just breathe and calm yourself down. Believe me you'll feel uncomfortable with the whole situation the first couple of times and then it just becomes one more thing that you have to deal with and it won't bother you anymore!

Ummm... first of all... R.E.L.A.X.

;P
Look... this is the phase of every girls life... and it happens... with every girl... nothing new...
Make yourself feel comfortable with talking all this with your grandmom... or else.... find someone elder to you (female) who can clarify all your doubts about this... and can help you....
P.S. you should be comfortable with her!! :) :)

Hope this might have helped.... ^_^
