Reaction to menses in Christianity

Hello all, just joined here, so quite obviously, I have a question. I want to preface this by saying that it's a generally hot topic, religion, and I don't mean to spark any debate or animosity. Thanks much.

For some background of a character, I'd like to know of a denomination of Christianity that would specifically teach that a woman is "unclean" during her menses, which would also presumably cause a mother to not even talk to a girl about her period until it was absolutely necessary (i.e., the first day of her first cycle). Never having been Christian myself, I don't know if such a sect exists within the religion, but being that the character is of mainly Scottish descent, that specific religious categorization would be preferrable. I've done various Google searches and read articles on Wikipedia, but to little avail.

Thanks much for your help, all.
