Freaked about getting it for the first time

 
I’m terrified about getting my period. I’ve heard that you can’t tell when you’re going to get it—it just comes and suddenly you realize you feel wet. Is that true? What can I do to avoid being surprised by it?

 

Hey chica, while you may not know exactly which day you’re period’s coming, there are definitely some warning signs that’ll prepare you for it.  PMS (premenstrual syndrome) is the process your body goes through before a period, so it’s a great way to tell if you’re almost ready.

 

Along with PMS comes cramps in your lower back, headaches, tender boobs, bloating and mood swings.  You also might be a little overly sensitive or emotional, but don’t worry, that’s perfectly normal.  Another major sign that your period’s coming is white vaginal discharge, which is a mucous-like substance that most girls start getting about six months before their first period.

 

Don’t let these PMS symptoms get you down though, because they give you some time to prep for your first period.  By putting pads in your locker and backpack, you’ll be prepared 24/7.  If you find yourself without any pads at school, dash to the nurse’s office where pads and other feminine products can surely be found. Just to be safe, keep a spare pair of underwear in your backpack or locker for those messy moments, and don’t wear white or light-colored pants if you feel it’s almost time. If you’re prepared, there will definitely be no surprises!
