Period 101: Dealin' with Aunt Flo when school's in session

 
Once school is back in session, it’s a pretty good bet that you’re not gonna be able to hole up in your room ‘til your period passes each month. But don’t worry – we’ve got ya covered. Here are a few easy things you can do to avoid worryin’ about your monthly visitor all through the school day.

 

 

Plan Ahead

Before you go to bed at night, figure out how often you’ll wanna change your pad or tampon at school the next day. If your flow is pretty heavy, ya probably wanna hit the ladies room every 2 hours or so, but if it’s lighter, you might be able to get away with goin’ every 4 hours. Whatever you decide, count up the amount of pads and tampons you’ll need to get ya through the day, and put ‘em in your backpack. That way, you won’t have to worry about forgettin’ to pack your essentials before you leave to catch the bus the next morning.

 

Extra Protection

If your flow is super heavy and you’re terrified of it leakin’ through, wear a tampon and a bigger, extra-absorbent pad. Better safe than sorry, right? And if your flow isn’t really heavy but ya still worry, you can put on a pantiliner to catch any excess from your tampon. That way you won’t be runnin’ to the bathroom every 10 seconds, and you can actually pay attention to what your Teach has to say.

 

Save Time

You’ve gotta hit the bathroom between classes, but you won’t have time after runnin’ back to your locker. So plan ahead a bit, and carry your books for your next class to the one before. Yeah, it might be a li’l extra work, but it’s only for one week per month. And it’s way better than takin’ your chances by skipping a bathroom trip when your period is in town!

 

Be Prepared

You never know when your flow is suddenly gonna get way worse, so stick an extra pad or tampon in your pencil case or purse, just in case. That way you’ll have a back-up in class, and if you’re feelin’ the need to run to the restroom, you won’t have to go all the way to your locker and miss tonsa class time.

 

Just Ask

If you didn’t get the chance to hit the ladies’ room before class and it’s well past time for a change, it’s totally okay to tell your Teach what’s up. She’ll understand that you’ve got an emergency and that you aren’t just askin’ to go to the bathroom so you can skip out on her lecture. And if you need a pad or tampon, she probably has an extra stash in her desk that you can raid, too. Wait, your teacher is a guy? Well, he won’t have extra pads and tampons, but he will respect you if you tell him discreetly that you have a “female emergency.” So don’t be shy – teachers are there to help, after all.

 

Hey chicas, what are some of your best tips to handle periods during the school year?
