Period experiences can be different for everyone: sometimes menstrual cycles come along with some pretty intense cramps, other times "that time of the month" can be relatively pain-free.

Celebs like Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Keke Palmer, and more have all opened up about their own introductions to the onset of womanhood – from the total period disaster moments to the excitement and confusion that follows. Their stories are just proof that everyone has a different way of dealing with their changing bodies.
