Dear BeingGirl Experts,

What do I do if I start in school and everybody sees me? We don't have a nurse at our school. What if I go to school and start my period and don't have a jacket, and my mom can't come and pick me up from school? I carry pads just in case, but I don't know if I have time to change because we only get four minutes between classes.

Dear Shelby,

Most girls find they have time to get to the bathroom before anyone knows you are having your period. Your period will probably not come flowing out heavily immediately from the start. It is more likely that you will notice some dampness or wetness and excuse yourself to the restroom to find that it has begun.

 

By carrying your menstrual protection in a backpack or purse, you can take this with you to the bathroom. Changing during class breaks or lunch makes the most sense. If you aren't sure when your period is due, wear an Always pantiliner daily and avoid any accidents. Also, check out the location in your school where emergency menstrual protection products are kept. Schools with a nurse can usually count on the nurse having menstrual protection available for emergencies.

 

Hope this helps,

Your BeingGirl Experts

HOPE233 All you have to do is convince your friend to tell her mom or you can just let her do what she decides it is her business and if she doesn't want her mom to know than so be it.

at my school in the nurses office there is just a basket with pads and tampons in it. I'm soooo thankful for this. If I ever get my period at school I'll know where to go! Plus, it doesn't have to be awkward cuz I wont have to ask them!

If you don't want to have to take your backpack or purse to the bathroom with you, keep a pad in your bra. At school we are not allowed to take our backpacks with us so i keep one there just in case!!!!
