I am nervous about getting my period in school, not to mention that we can no longer carry purses in school. What can I do to not be as nervous?
Don't be nervous, chica! When you first start, it's not heavy enough to cause a disaster! It totally blows that you can't carry a purse around but that's nothing to worry about. Your school nurse is bound to have a whole stock of female products. If anything, I'm sure your teacher will understand if you need to go to your locker! Let's just hope your teacher's a woman!
If you're really worried about not being ready for your period to come, then I say keep a pad or tampon in your pencil case or your supply pouch. No one will see it and you can always have one at hand!
