    Hey I'm a wimp too. The best way is when you two are alone, then you just gotta gather your courage and tell her.

    I have heard different ways to say it, "I am a woman now", I just got my period. I dunno you kinda have to say what you want. And unfortunately moms are embarassing no matter what, but you could ask her to try not to make it a big deal. Chances are she might already know if you have had it for a day or so, because you have to change the sanitary napkin or tampon. It is a little akward getting it the first time, but eventually its not really a big deal anymore.

    Hope this help a little at least.

    Trust me go tell your mom. In my fathers country of Japan there is a custom were when the girl gets her first period they serve a special bean with a red dot. Thats how the father knows his daughter becomes a woman. However a freind of mine had her mother serve this bean at a family gathering so the whole damn clan knew. Now thats humiliating, so there are worse things than saying mom we need to talk in private please.

    I wouldn't worry about hun. It's your mother and she has been through the same thing. It might get her a little teary eyed because her little girl is becoming a young woman but she will be fine. I had to tell my mom as soon as I did because I was at school and had to come home. We had the "talk" and it was alittle awkard and then it was all over. Everything will be fine I promise!

    just tell her, she'll understand why you were nervous because shes a woman and she started her period for the first time once upon a time

    Just go to her and let her know that you need to talk to her. And tell her what's on your mind!
