MOD- whatever that is. Okay so this may be long. I have had 4 periods and they have all smelled really bad! The first one was because I was afraid to clean myself down there but now I clean it very good down there. It still smells! Why!? I think maybe it was because the blood dried on my hair, and the smell lingered. I shaved ALL the hair off so maybe that will help!? (: Another thing, the bath thing, you have to wear a tampon!? I don't think that's true, is it?! Also, my pad seems too short! I either find blood on the top of my underwear or the bottom. I told my mom that I wanted longer pads but she just bought the same kind for us! Lastly, she tells me I need to use a tampon by next year (I'm in 9th grade right now) and I'm just not comfortable with that. Pads are just fine for me. I told her that she doesn't have to tell me what to do, and that I can do what I want! In the beginning she tells me I can't wear a tampon until I'm older and now she's saying I have to!? HELP please!!! (:



Hey girly! Periods aren't very pleasant smelling for anyone... so I wouldn't worry too much about it. They always smell gross. As for taking baths, typically your flow stops when you get in water, so you don't have to wear a pad. And, don't let anyone force you to wear a tampon. Wear one when you feel comfortable. Some girls don't wear tampons at all, and that's perfectly ok. It's all about personal preference. The next time you go shopping with your ma, I would ask to pick out your own pads. You could try some long, super-long, or overnight ones for added length.

 MOD! OMG! I have all of these symptoms! Ahh! Well umm my school just lost our study hall and now our teachers got more strict. We are not allowed to go to the bathroom in class and we are not allowed to carry purses or go to our locker! What if I am on my period and I have to tell my guy teacher?!? I am so scared because I can't stop at my locker or anything! Help!

 Wow, chica. I'm sorry your school is being so strict. You have a few options. It's really not fair that girls can't carry around purses, so I'd bring that to the attention of your teacher and express to them that you want to be prepared for you period. Believe me, they will understand. Even if you have to tell your guys teacher, don't worry. He knows all about girls getting their first period, so I'm sure he'll understand. If rules don't chance though, you can start wearing sweatshirts or some other type of shirt with pockets and stick a tampon/pad in there. That way you'll always have one with you.
