My Cousin Just Started Menstruating. What Should I Tell Her?

Hi Folks, I've got a cousin who is very dear to me. I was told by her guardians that she's been seeing her monthly period and needs some guidance and advice. She respects me a lot and her guardian wants me to talk to her. I'm a guy and knows very little about such strictly feminine stuff.

I would appreciate the advice and guidance of women (especially) and experienced men in da house.

This topic shd be taught in schools in year 7 or JSS 1.

Google it & ur will find some interesting articles to give her.

Look for a woman to speak to her about hygiene, staying away from boys, etc.

Good luck!

Mohawkchic, my thoughts exactly.

@ poster, I think what they want you to do is talk to her about boys and *ex. How to not have intercourse and or wait till her wedding night kinda talk. It could mean more to her coming from the opposite sex that she admires so much as opposed to parents. Her parents might have noticed that she respects and thinks so highly of you, hence why they are asking you to speak with her.

As per the cleanliness, her mother or a grown female can help her with that

Have a woman that you respect and trust talk to her. Why can't her female guardian do it?

~Me thinks her guardians meant for you to talk to her about boys!!"The Birds & The Bees" Not The How-To-Put-On-Sanitary-Pads speech!!

~She's got to that stage where unprotected sex will end up in Unwanted pregnancy,so without scaring her silly,talk to her from the heart,like you would your own sister,tell her the pro's & cons of having sex!! Coming from a man,and one she looks up to,i suppose it will make a heck of a lot of difference!

Hi there,

All the suggestions given so far are good and being a guy i can feel what you are thinking of. But all that needs to be said in few words is this, tell her to wash up herself regularly, use her sanitary towel at all time throughout the "flowering period" and just be herself. Nothing too difficult.

But for you as a guy it might take you a little more effort to convey other messages to her. you get what i mean? So to ease this stress on you get in contact with me on olukemi4u@yahoo.com for other details.

Cheers

Kemi (Mrs)

If this is her first time, she's probably be scared, like every first timers.

It's better if you let another female talk to her.

But if there's no other female who can talk to her, just let her know that it's normal. Tell her her body is changing, but will stop changing at the age of 30. The right age for sex jk jk.

Anywayz, just be gentle with her, make her feel normal. If she still feel the need to know more about her PMS, let her talk to an older woman.
