When I got my first period my mom gave me a bunch of pads. She also told me that I shouldn’t use tampons because I’d lose my virginity. At 12 years old.

She came from a sermon one morning, saying that the priest said women shouldn’t shop on Sundays because it’s the ‘Lord’s day’, and if we do, we’ll go to hell. She also thinks women shouldn’t drink from bottles because it’s very ‘suggestive’.
