When I was a young girl my mom had (the talk) with me. No! not the sex talk but the talk about starting my period, my menstrual cycle. She talked to me about what it was and why us women have them. Around the time she figured I would start we prepared for it and bought everything I needed before it came. I was anticipating when it would come and what I would be doing around the time it came.
