How should I deal with my period at camp?


 
I'm going to sleepaway field hockey camp this summer, and during that week I should be getting my period. I use pads and have no desire in using tampons. How can I play field hockey and also be comfortable? Also, how can I change my pad during the camp day?


Although tampons can be useful, they’re definitely not necessary and many girls find pads more comfortable. The key is to find out what type of pads fit you best.


You’ll need to choose pads according to the type of flow you have. If your flow isn’t too heavy, don’t bother getting the super large ones—a regular size will do the trick and will be much more comfortable. Sometimes, at the beginning or end of your period, a panty liner will suffice. Some brands make pads that are ultra thin but still absorbent. These pads will probably protect you even if you have a heavy flow. Plus, they don’t give you that annoying feeling like you’re wearing a diaper.


Make sure that you wear panties with a lot of coverage. You want to wear a pair that fits snugly once you put a pad on. That way, it won’t slide around if your undies are too loose and won’t ride up if they’re too tight.


Since you’ll be active, you should try to wear a pad with wings. Wings are these nifty flaps at the side of the pad that should secure it into place on your panties. They should allow for some extra range of movement without those awkward adjustments.


As for changing your pad during the camp day, keep a couple extra pads in a bag along with your sunscreen and about every five hours depending on how heavy your flow is, ask to use the bathroom. No one will question you! Just tuck a pad up your shirt or in the waistband of your shorts, and you should be good to go.
