First period protection


My mom keeps giving me “the talk” on getting my period. I think I’m ready, but I’m scared that it might happen at school, and I don’t want to embarrass myself in front of everyone. What can I do to stop that from happening?
 
Hello my friend! Well, first I must congratulate your mother for giving you “the talk” in general. Some mothers are afraid to talk to their girls about periods, so I’m glad to you’re in “the know.”
 
Relax!
Waiting for your period to show up is nerve-wracking. You’re a little bit anxious, a little bit nervous. You wonder when will it happen, so you can finally become a “woman,” but then you secretly feel a little bit elated every time you don’t feel that cramping feeling everyone talks about.
 
Now for the bad news…
Unfortunately, there’s no way to know when exactly Aunt Flo is gonna come to town. If you work on becoming more aware of your body, though, you’ll pick up on the warning signs pretty quickly.
 
Get to know what’s normal.
As you go about your day, think about how your body feels. Does your tummy hurt? Are you getting weird dischage? Are your breasts super-sensitive? Are you moody? When you know what’s normal for you, you’ll know instantly when your time has come. Note if you’re starting to feel cramps, and out-of-the-blue back aches. If you’re starting to get more pimples than usual, and your vaginal secretions are making your feel like you’re peeing on yourself, then your period just might be around the corner.
 
Be prepared.
Be sure to always have a pad, pantiliner and/or tampon at the ready just in case and make visits to the bathroom with your lady products when you feel a ‘leaking’ sensation. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Good Luck!
