Feminine Wash: Showering During Your Period Dear BeingGirl Experts, I am 13 years old, and I am in the 7th grade (ugh). I have had my period the second time. I am still scared every time I see blood on my undies. Also how when you take a shower, there is blood running between your legs? PLEASE HELP!! Karen --- Dear Karen, I know it's not easy to have these new experiences. You will learn to handle seeing your period’s discharge as you get more comfortable with your body's processes. This is going to happen for about the next 30 years. This alone is reason enough to become more comfortable. Taking a shower or bath every day is important during this time, and you will learn to handle the mechanics of cleansing yourself when you have your period. Actually, it's a good time to feel better by taking a bath or using a special lotion or shampoo in the shower. You want to care for yourself with the feminine treats that make you know how special it is to be a girl who is becoming a woman. If you are concerned about blood leaving your body during a shower, relax. Use the toilet first, and I doubt you will have a problem in the shower. If you are really concerned, you can use a tampon when bathing or showering and relieve the worry.
