I just recently started my period, and I keep my pads in my backpack. How can I get from my locker to the bathroom without people seeing my pads?
Good question! There are a couple of ways to be super stealthy about hitting the bathroom when you’re on your period. Pick the option that works best for you (and if we missed one, let us know in the comments!).
#1 – Shove it up your sleeve
Admittedly, this one works best with tampons, but we’ve done it with pads, too, when times get desperate. Just slide the pad from your locker into the sleeve of a long-sleeved shirt, sweater, sweatshirt or jacket. Done!
#2 – Stick it in your waistband, in a hoodie pocket or under your shirt
Wearing a tank or tee? Try shoving the pad in the waistband of your jeans, beneath your top or conceal in a coat.
#3 – Grab a bag
Easiest option? Snagging a small purse for your period products, a toothbrush and a little lip gloss.
