Hey Anonymous!

Please do not stay inactive when you have periods! You could use Adira period panty,it has always kept me away from stains. You will get them in both,boxer and brief forms. They are super comfy and cotton,you should totally give it a shot!

DrPsych agony auntYour gym teacher or school nurse will have supplies of sanitary wear for emergencies. As your cycle gets a bit more regular you should be able to know approximately when your period is due. You should just buy some protection and keep it in your school bag - don't feel embarrassed about this, look around your class and know all those girls are experiencing problems. If you think your flow is really heavy get checked out by a doctor to make sure there are no medical reasons. It gets easier to manage periods as you get older and more practiced!

This is going to sound really gross, but it's my emergency backup plan, especially when I was at school. Take a bunch of toilet paper and wad it up on top of your pad, inside your panties. It helps, cuz it gives you more absorption for your flow. It's not ideal, but it works!

:-) Periods are a pain but theres a lot of ways to get around them!!

Okay, I'm a guy, but I know what my girlfiend does. She uses a tampon as well as some sort of panty liner or small pad too. Even though I know that's good advice I somehow feel like I need to take a shower...

Yuna~ agony auntI totally understand your situation. I sometimes have a really heavy flow and it is very troublesome at times. I started using tampons with a maxi-pad at the same time. Tampons are awesome. It will leak-proof when you're doing sports. The maxi-pad justs act as a security blanket.

Having period is a part of being a woman. You should be proud of it and not be annoyed by it. Think about it the bright side.

One thing I don't want to suggest but I did find it helpful to reduce my flow is birth control pills. If it is causing you inconvinence at daily activities, maybe you should go to your doctor regarding it. He/She might have an easy solution for you.

desirewhitefire agony auntStart using tampons. I know, they're scary to look at, especially if you're a virgin, but trust me, you'll be so thankful. And make sure you read the directions properly. Even better instruction can come from your mother.

A reader, anonymous, writes (24 October 2007):

As a former teacher, if you find yourself beginning to leak, go up to the teacher and ask to go to the bathroom. If they ask why, say "girl problems". Most men teachers won't even ask if a girl makes this request. As for the leaking issue, do you use tampons? If so use one with a ultra slim napkin. I know it probably embarrassing for you to explain the situation, but believe me it's more embarrassing for the male teachers! If there is any backlash from going to the bathroom, get a doctor's note and give it to the nurse.
