My sister won’t talk to her daughter about periods so I gave her tampons… now she’s saying I’ve ruined her virginity

AN AUNT has revealed how her sister called her ‘inappropriate’ for giving her niece tampons – despite the fact she had been leaking every day.

Taking to Reddit the woman revealed that her sister was furious with her for discussing the issue with the teen, claiming she is “ruining her virginity.”

In her post she explains that her sister is too “embarrassed” to talk about periods with her teen, as well as sex, birth or vaginas.

She wrote: “So when my niece got her first period naturally like most mothers do she called me to come explain to her daughter what a period is, why she’s getting it and how to manage it. 

“I obviously didn’t want to do this as it wasn’t my job but I did because somebody had to for the poor girl who was absolutely freaking out as to why she was bleeding.”

The aunt then gave her niece some pads, explaining that there were alternatives but those were probably best for beginners.

She continued: “She’s had it for about a year now and she came to me a few weeks ago and said she was embarrassed because the first few days were heavy and she would always leak at school and have blood on the back of her pants. 

“Her mom would tell her it was her responsibility to get the stains out so she was always trying to get them out. I told her the best ways to do it and that sometimes it’s just a lost cause but then I proceeded to give her tampons. 


“I explained the whole thing to her and didn’t even think about it again.”

However, her niece’s mum was far from pleased with the presence of the new sanitary product.

“My sister found out when going through her backpack and she found some and she was completely p***ed off,” she wrote. 

“She claimed it wasn’t my place to give them to her and that I was ‘taking her virginity’ by telling her to use them. 

“I don’t feel like what I did was wrong because my niece knew she couldn’t go to her mom about it and she was being made fun of at school for leaking and she couldn’t get the stains out of her pants all the time.”

The aunt went on to say that in hindsight she should have probably have spoken to her sister first, and asked Reddit if she was an a**hole for not doing so.

And the consensus was overwhelmingly in the aunt’s favour.

Commenting on her post, one wrote: “Your sister needs a wake up call, acting like it’s a crime that she leaked through a pad when she’s still trying to learn about periods.”

“(The aunt) needs to give their sister a calender, I don’t think she knows we live in 2021,” agreed another.

While a third wrote, “YOUR SISTER IS EMBARRASSINGLY UNINFORMED ABOUT HER OWN ANATOMY.”
