Your first TOTM! Do you remember the day you first got your period? How old were you? Where were you? Were you home? At school? At sleep away camp? At a sleepover? Where you wearing a dress? Did you have on white? What was the first day of your TOTM! like?
I remember the first day I got my TOTM! I was 12 and half and it was in the month of January. I was home with my mother and sister. I had gone to the bathroom and as I began to wipe I noticed blood. Looking back to that day now it was almost textbook. I was thankful to be in my home AND in the bathroom at the time I got my first period. But not all first periods happen that way.
Some girls experience their periods at the mall, some in the pool, some at the beach.
How many times has your period came and you've experienced cramps? More times than you care to share I'm sure. Well this month we have another challenge geared towards alleviating those pesky cramps we as women sometimes experience during that Time Of The Month! Did you know that if you drank pickle juice at the onset of getting abdominal cramps during your period that your cramps will go away within minutes?! Yes it's true! And I'm encouraging you to take our
TOTM! PICKLE JUICE CHALLENGE

Once you begin experiencing cramps drink the juice from a pickle jar. Pour out approximately 3 oz and drink it. You should feel the cramps subsiding in minutes!
Now how much exactly is 3 oz? That's 6 tablespoons or 3/8 of a cup.. So basically less than half a cup you would need to drink. You can drink the juice of dill pickles or sour pickles.
The choice is yours. So during your next TOTM! Try it!
