Nigerian physician asks people to advise his daughter who has been crying after experiencing her first menstrual cycle

There is no limit to what people share on social media anymore! A Nigerian Physician, Maduka Ogwueleka, "innocently" shared photos of his 11-year-old daughter via Facebook and revealed that she has been crying nonstop after experiencing her first menstrual cycle today. He however feels advise from others will assure her that it's normal.
"My first daughter Chinazom saw her menstrual period for the very first time today. She's been crying all day. Both parents can't console her.
We've advised her it is normal, but she is still crying. Please say a word or two to Chinazom. She'll read them. Chinazom will be 12 years old next month (8th August). She wants to be a professor of mathematics when she grows up," Maduka wrote.

Doubt if you are a doctor, from the look of this picture you reside in the UK! If you are a qualified Doctor in the UK where did you throw safe guarding and confidentiality? If social services sees this you could lose your license! You think you're in Nigeria?

Linda you seem to have a problem with this but you are quick to share naked pictures and give perverts a voice. I think that's hypocrisy.

Linda, what's wrong with her dad sharing this online? Which kain bush mentality you take dey approach this issue? The dad has done absolutely nothing wrong sharing this on social media....the girl needs to be encouraged & told she's only growing gradually into a woman.

Awww Chi don't cry you even started late I started mine at age 9 and didn't have no one to teach me nothing as my parents were both living abroad at that time and we my sibling and I were living with our grandma, I didn't even notice it until the second flow when I went playing and got stained on my cloths and my grandma saw it.... Its nothing to be scared about dear... I will blame her mother here she should have prepared her long before now...

Enter your comment...she is just been naive, it a normal thing as a young woman which you are stop the cry and embrace your self.

What is worse is that he writes she wants to be a professor of maths. Wtf??? Who cares, irrelevant , and at 12 there's a long way and puberty to go. They put that shit in her head no normal 12 year old comes up with that stuff.

Some Nigerians are cruel and too serious minded somehow. Being a doctor does not mean than he should know everything medical. In the UK, kids are taught about menstruation in late Primary School. Did she school in the UK?
She should learn to note her menstrual days and keep pads in her bag in case of an 'emergency' period that comes earlier than normal and take Primrose oil capsules during menstrual days because it keeps the pain away if you have period pains. Secret!

The things we do not talk about, yet its crucial to our development. I once spoke to man in his 60's (a lawyer) and he recalled a time when his daughter in her early 20's had her periods and was in pain, he did not know what to do so he had to call on his wife who had travelled abroad for advice

Thank God for social media, Chi has entered womanhood, did her mother cook rice to celebrate? Freshen up dear and relax. Her dad is brave for doing this, Good on you sir.

There are lots of ladies who would have wished they had someone to give them advice when they started out.

First of all, I am really surprised that no one sees anything wrong in what the so called doctor/parent did. How could you post such an intimate moment of your daughter's life on social media. Are you nuts????? There are better ways of doing this. This is another example of parenting turning into stupidity. Do you know the horror she could face in school when her classmates hear about it? A number of them might be having the same issue but they would not admit it. Instead, they would go around making fun of your daughter and turning her into a victim of abuse. I hope next time you would apply your sense and know what is appropriate to post online. At least you could have searched for some support groups online that would help both of you anonymously.
