So, my periods been late for awhile, but I just got it the other day again, but I wasn't expecting it this week. You see, my birthday party is tomorrow, and it's swimming. I have to swim at my own party, right? I don't talk to my mom about it, and even if I did, she's going to be gone until the party starts. I don't have any tampons, and neither does she (I've checked). So what should I do about this? Thanks.

Hey girlie,

It's totally normal to be irregular with your period at first! You could hang poolside in shorts, or if you've tried tampons before, you could ask your dad or an older sibling to take you to the store to get some. It might be a little awkward, but they'll totally understand, and it would be way better than missing out on your party. Happy birthday!

Is it true that if you do a lot of sports you might
Not get your period!
Please help I'm 13 and sill haven't gotten mine.
And my parents say its because I do gymnastics


Hey sporty girl! No matter what, you will get your period sooner or later.  You are still pretty young so it can happen within the next year or so.  Playing sports may slow the process down because when you are active your periods tend to be lighter and shorter.  Don't worry your lil present will come when its ready.

MOD I just got my "you know what" today. I need some advise on talking to my Mom about it. I already told her, but started crying because she makes everything so awkward. I just don't know what to do about it! Also I don't know how to bring pads around school. Im afraid that if I put them in my pocket they will fall out. Also if I put them in my pencil case or a purse, my friends and even guys will go through it not knowing pads are in there. Also with my pencil case, my friends and others go into my pencil case without asking looking for a pencil or something. Please help!!!

Hey girl, just take a deep breath and do your best to remain calm while you talk to your mom about your period.  She's been through this before too, so she'll probs be more understanding than you think.  If there's a little pocket in the inside of your purse, you can stick a pad in there.  You could also wrap it with a tissue to disguise it if you like.  Ask your friends not to go through your purse.  If they do and they find a pad, then the joke's on them.  They'll probs be more embarrassed than you.  Just keep your cool and exude confidence.  If they ask about the pad, just be like, yeah, I started my period.  No big deal.  You got this.  Good luck!

What I do is I put a pad in each of my shoes, right under my heel, before I go to school. Then whenever I need it, I go to the bathroom and untie my shoe and use it! Then I stuff one in my pocket before I go to lunch and put it in my shoe in the bathroom at lunch!

1. buy a mini purse or backpack filled with tampons, pads, make up, etc.
2. tell your teacher its an emergencey "girl thing"
3.put them under your shoe
4.some girls put them inside their bra!

I have 2 questions about periods...
1) My period comes every other month but lasts about ten days. Should I see a doctor?
2) My school is going through major renovation, and we don't have lockers anymore... I can't go to the bathroom between classes because its way to crowded, and I don't want to be late! How can I go to the bathroom in class, and bring pads? We have to carry ouur bookbags now between classes, so that's where my pads are. I sit next to guys is a lot of classes, so I don't know how I could discreetly get a pad out, and go to the bathrrom.
Thanks Smile


hey! 1) when in doubt, it never hurts to see the doctor 2) maybe keep one in your back pocket then you can just get up and go without rummaging around, good luck!

Im still in elementary school so I keep pads in my desk and I've always done that. But today some guys in my class went through my desk and found them when i was in Orchestra! I didnt know so when I came back to art class some boys laughed at me. My friend (lets call her get R) R said I need to tell you something. I thought that I had leaked and there was blood down there but no. She said that T and K had found a pad in my desk. I was so embarressed I broke down and cried. Is that bad?? I didnt want the teacher to know because those guys are my friends and they didn know what it was but they found out. They werent teasing me but still. They got in trouble and were told not to talk to me, im afraid that they will always look at me funny now. How do I get from my desk to the bathroom? And please help im still embarressed. -_- MOD MOD MOD MOD PLEASE!!!!!!



hey! if they start acting weird, just act like it doesn't bug you and eventually they'll forget about it. try putting the pads in a small bag that you can carry to the restroom if you need to. good luck!

How did u post this

I just put in a tampon for the first time and it doesn't hurt it just feels like its not far "in" enough. I don't wanna take it out though cause I'm scared it will hurt (cause I just put it in and I don't think it's absorbed enough blood yet)

Hey girlie,

It might just feel weird since it's your first time, but if you're not sure you could ask your mom to make sure you have it in right.
