My school gym class just started this semester and it is the first year that we are required to change for workouts on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I haven't gotten my period yet for this month and it should come tomorrow or Wednesday. I am really worried about changing because the ages are 12-13 and some of the girls don't have their periods yet. I have tried tampons and they make me really dizzy so that doesn't work, and I don't want to leak. What should I do? Especially because I don't have it yet, what if I get it and I don't notice until I am changing? Please help!!!

Hey girl,

Easy fix! Try heading to the bathroom before you change - that way, you'll notice before you're changing and won't be embarrassed. If you already have your period and you're wearing a pad, just change quickly and don't act suspicious or awkward. No one will notice Smile

Mod!! Is it normal to get ur period for like 6 hours and then nit get it again till the next day??? Thanks(:

Hey girl,

Our periods start off pretty light and get heavier as the days pass, so it's possible that you might not see any brown/red for a little while. Don't sweat it!

The principle at my school will possibly be taking away our ability to carry purses at all (im sorta freaking out...) where should i put tampons or pads? p.s. i cant ly put them in my pocket, b/c if teachers think u have something in your pocket they will make u show them to make sure its not a phone. Help!
Smile thanks Smile

Hey girl,

Do you have a locker? Stash 'em in there and then just make a pitstop before you use the bathroom! Or you could keep them with the school nurse - I'm sure she'd be happy to help ya out Smile

Mod!! So i think it is my period but i dont have pads! Only pantylinerss........ How should i bring up the topic of pads with my mom??? Tonight were getting sundays because we both had rough days today.... So any suggestions on how to bring up the subject?????? Thanks

Hey babe,

Be honest and direct with her tonight. Just tell her - "Mom, I got my period today! Do you think we could stop to grab some pads on the way home?" She'll be glad you approached her about it and will def help ya out Smile

Mod!!!!! Im confused... Idk if i have my period because theres a bunch if medium colored stuff on my pantyliner..... Is this my period !!!!?????????? Thanks(:

Hey chickie,

Most periods start off with "stuff" that's either light brown, dark brown, or light red. When it gets heavier, it gets redder. So it definitely could be the start of your period - just stay prepared with a pad and see if it changes over the next day!

MOD MOD MOD!!!! What is ovulation? Cause people say it on movies and other places and I just sit there and wonder what it is. So please answer.



Hey chica! Basically, ovulation it just a part of your menstrual cycle. It occurs when a mature egg is released from the ovary, pushed down the fallopian tube, and is available to be fertilized. Some girls experience mild cramps during ovulation.
