Period panic! What if I get it at school?


 
I haven't gotten my period yet, and I'm afraid I'll get it for the first time at soccer practice or school or somewhere. Help me!

 

Dear Worried,

Every woman in the world made it through her first time, and you can be sure that you will, too. Your anxiety is natural, so why not carry a sanitary pad in a zippered pocket in your backpack or gym bag? That way, if it starts, you'll be prepared. If it happens at practice, confide in an older teammate or coach. If it happens at school, ask your teacher or nurse for advice (or to get necessary supplies). Either way, you'll manage just fine, and you can congratulate yourself for becoming a young woman.
