Honestly by the time you hit high school guys don't care about periods anymore they know whats going on so if they end up finding y=out they don't say anything my BGF can usually tell by my mood when its my time of the month

My best excuse is when you say, "I better go get some more sunscreen and i'll go to the bathroom while i'm at it!All this water really filled me up!" Works everytime!!!Plus, you can grab your beach bag to avoid awkwardness!!!

Well I've been having my period for about two years now, but I have never used a tampon. Its kinda embarrassing but I'm really scared about it. It just freaks me out and I'm afraid I'll like I something wrong and I've heard about how you can get TSS from leaving a tampon in for too long so im pretty scared about it. The problem is I go to the pool a lot during the summer and I go t a camp where we go swimming a lot, and I don't want to have to sit out! I don't know what to do... I feel like a wimp.

I just turned 14 but I still haven't had my period, but I have boobs, armpit and pubic hair, and I have had discharge for about a year! When will it come? I'm worried because around march I got a physical done and they said if it doesn't start by the time your 14 see your doctor. Also I started swim for my gym class and the teacher marks when you start your period and I'm embarrassed because I haven't started mine. Sorry this is so long.

How light can a period be? Also, is it normal to get spotting and cramps every month without even having your period before? I've never had my period before, but I think I'm really close because I'm 14 in a week and I have all the signs of puberty. I'm wondering if this is my period because it's been going for two months now and it always comes at around the same time, but I don't know how much blood is considered a period.... A little help here? Thanks!
Your period can be extremely light where you barely notice it, but more than spotting. Spotting is very normal, but it is not your period. I can't exactly tell you when you will get it but it does sound like it's on its way in the near future. We've got a few articles on this if you're curious! Jordan S.

no, you cant wear a pad in the pool. think of it this way, a pad absorbs any liquid it comes in contact with. itll swell up like a diaper right when you step in the water and wont have any more room 2 absorb what you want it to. if you dont wear tampons, try 'em! they arent as bad as you think...like at all they r really nice actually hope this helped!

i don't where tampons!So can you where pads in the pool if not what am i suppose to do?
by Megan328 on 7/11/2012 1:16:47 PM
dear Piano player114,
if she is a very trusty friend you can tell her that your on your period and it might leak through onto the sheets. Or you can wear overnight pads i prefer u by kotex

Hey k123k, I don't usually wear tampons but the one time I did they were Kotex. They were easy to insert, came in nice colors and had helpful instructions. So check them out chicky. Hope that helps girl! Xx
could you please tell me what the best tampons are for beginners? I went into the tampon isle today and I had no idea what I should buy because I wasn't sure what brand would be easiest to insert and remove. Please help cause I'm gonna go buy some tomorrow! I cant ask my mom cause she has never used tampons! thanks in advance Lynae P.

i know that all you you will think i am cuckoo but i always go to the pool without a tampon. in my first experience, th water;s pressure actualy goes against your you know, thus blocking the flow of you know what. i dont know if any of you believe me but it really works. I'm not suer if it works on EVERYONE but i took this advice from a friend that has a totally different body from me. i wear a liner in my swimsuit just in case i leak an when i get out of the pool and change there is absolutlely no blood to begin or end with. So dont worry if you forget to wear your tampon on pool day because despite what your mom says its ok to swim without a tampon

Don't freak out about wearing a tampon if you want to go in the pool, your period stops in the water. Test it out in a bath, I swear it works!

I'm going on vacation to the beach this week for 2 days, but I have my period! I'm leaving tomorrow and I have never used a tampon, and I really don't want to so please don't tell me to just try it....anyways can I just wear a pad in my bikini bottoms with some athletic shorts over them and try not to get wet? Please tell me what to do!!!!! Thanks so much<3

Why are you so eager to use tampons? Are you not afraid that you might accidentally hurt yourself? Don't you think pads are much easier? Maggie P.

I have a little over a month of summer left,and I really want to tone up as much as possible. I am drinking 4 big cups of lemon water every day,(Which ends up equaling 8 cups)and exercising 4-5 days a week. I'm trying to eat as good as possible,and be as healthy as possible. Will it help me by the end of summer??
Yes, definitely. That should definitely show some kind of results in a month! Jordan S.

i honestly dont care if people know. most all my friends are guys, i only got one girl buddy. but i dont care they know really cause its not our faults. i am in high school and they might say something depending on how immuture they are. but most guys really dont even care and theyre cool about it. they know we have periods. when i was at school dance i asked my friend dane to hold tampons in his pockets for me hahahaha choose not to be embarrassed because your not the only girl on your period. its all good! if u do care to keep secret cause your friends are immuture or something, just say 'hey i'll brb i got to pee'
