Are you ready? What if your period catches you by surprise?

 

How can you be ready for your period if you don't know when it's coming?
It's like carrying an umbrella in case it might rainjust carry a tampon or pad with you. For period protection, wear an Always pantiliner for the days leading up to your period. Or leave some in your locker so you'll always have supplies at school. Since tampons are small, they'll fit easily in your purse. If you're caught off guard, don't be shyask a friend if she has any pads or tampons with her. The school nurse, secretary, or a physical education or health teacher might be able to help too.

 

What happens if you start your period and you don't have protection?
As a short-term solution, fold some toilet tissue and put it in your underwear to absorb the flow. Your period usually starts with just a few drops of blood, so you have time to get the right protection.

 

What do you do if you start menstruating in school?
If your period comes unexpectedly, no matter where you are, don't panic. At school, your teachers and school nurse know all about what's happening and usually can provide you with "emergency" period protection.

 

Once you begin to menstruate regularly, you'll know when to expect your next period, so be prepared with your own supply of period protection. Keep "extras" in a zippered case or compartment in your bag or knapsack. Many girls carry Tampax Compak tampons because of their discreet size; they tuck away so easily in a purse or fit in the palm of your hand.

My most embarrassing period story is it was the day before we went on vacation and i got my period . (This was my second period) i was like OMG we are going to a waterpark . So i was freaking out the whole day about it . (Still havent told my mom yet) then then next day we are in the car driving to the hotel and i ask my sister if she has any pads with her . She says no ! And i think to myself why didnt i bring pads with me ??!! Then i had to tell my mom in the car with my dad and brother in the car . Then my brother finds out and he say . Normal i can smell it (the odor of blood) and like all of a sudden he says ewww i smell it now . Like omg really ?!!! Then we stop at a grocery store and my mom buys me some pads and tampons . And my brother said no need to hide the box i already know what brand you got . He is so immature .then for the rest of vacation every time i came out the bathroom mh brother would stare at me for 10 mins :/
