Also if you notice it DO NOT IGNORE IT, get some new clothes, it will save you a ton of embarrassment, one girl in my class had hers and didn't do anything, she let it show...it was bad the boys thought she pooped... Lauren I.

I've gotta say, periods suck. But it sounds like you're tinier, it's no big deal to get it later. Lauren I.

I had mine after school (phew!) in grade five. I was earlier than all my friends and they were like, "What do I do when it happens?! I'll be covered with blood!" It was hilarious! They all have theirs now though, and realised how crazy they were being. Lauren I.

I would have LOVED to get mine at school! My friends are all guys except for two, and I was at one of my guy friends houses, and I had to go talk to his mom, whom I've known for years! 😳 Lauren I.

TBH, periods aren't fun. Just a fact of life.
However, we all get 'em, and we all live through 'em. (Even if it's the most you've bled ever)
So don't worry. Just keep a pad or tampon on hand. And change it regularly. P.S.: At school it's much easier, because you always have a set time to do it.

i got my period while spending the night at my grandma's house in 6th grade. i wasn't for sure what it was at first because i could barely see it. it wasn't that heavy but then over the next few days i didn't feel too good and it got heavier. fortunately, mine wasn't too bad. if u don't have any pads with you, stuff your underwear with toilet paper until you can find a pad. works every time;) good luck!
