What if you don't have a pad or tampon when you start your period?
Presumably you have no access to any menstrual products: tampons, pads, cups, etc. in which case the first option would be to buy yourself some supplies. In some places they will provide free tampons, if in public ask someone else for what you need, and if you're in school try asking a teacher or school nurse. If there's no way to get supplies just use tissue paper or cloth as makeshift pad.
If you are in a public place, usually bathroom have machines where you can buy pads or tampons. If you are not in a public place, but do have acess to a bathroom, a good subsitute is to just make a pad out of tissue paper. If you aren't near a bathroom you can always do the ol' 'covering up incase I leak' trick by tying a sweatshirt or jacket arounf your waist.
you should put in a tampon and wear a pad in your underwear
It's a matter of opinion which is better between tampons and pads - although when you're using tampons you still have to use pads, also there are other options like menstrual cups and softcups. Pads are a lot simpler than tampons and don't have health risks like Toxic Shock Syndrome like tampons. Tampons are internal so more discreet but have various health risks which means they're also inconvenient as there are a lot of precautions… Read More
you get a tampon or pad
No, there's no reason to have to use a tampon at all. You have various options in how to deal with menstrual flow - sanitary pads, tampons, menstrual sponges, menstrual cups, softcups, free-bleeding, menstrual release, etc. Tampons are just one option that you can use, and are actually one of the worst options because they are not healthy or hygienic due to their impact on vaginal health - thus risks of infections and TSS. You… Read More
No, tampons and pads (also other menstrual products) are only needed on your period. Once your period is over you no longer use tampons or pads, in fact as your period comes to an end you need to stop using tampons because tampons cannot be used with light flow or spotting. It is a good idea to carry tampons and pads with you ready for when your next period starts, if you're young menstrual cycles… Read More

You either insert a tampon or put on a pad
If you have your period and you always use a pad and have to go swimming do you have to use a tampon?
No, you don't need to use a tampon to go swimming. You can use menstrual cups or softcups instead which are safer and more convenient than tampons (unlike tampons they can be worn when flow is light), menstrual cups also don't leak like other options. If you're not comfortable wearing internal menstrual products then you can't swim on your period, just sit out on your period.
You can use whatever menstrual product you like - tampons, pads, menstrual cups, softcups, cloth pads, period underwear, menstrual sponges, diaphragms, or use options like menstrual release - it's all down to the individual to decide what they prefer and what works best for their lifestyle. It's recommended that women start off using pads, if you then want to move onto internal options consider safer options like menstrual cups are softcups which are internal like… Read More
yes, continue to use it even if you start your period during treatment. use a pad, not a tampon. Its important to finish the treatment or you may need to start over.
You can use any of the following products to go swimming on your period: Tampons. Soft tampons. Menstrual sponges. Menstrual cups. Diaphragms. Softcups. You can't use a pad when you're in the water - the blood would not flow down into the pad while in the water, the pad would be saturated with water so unable to absorb blood even if it did reach the pad, and the pad would come unstuck if using disposable… Read More
If it's your first period... Use pads at first, if you want to start using internal options consider menstrual cups or softcups which are far safer than tampons so can be worn from your first period - cups can also be worn with any flow, at any time, and for up to 12 hours without needing to alternate with pads. If you decide you want to use tampons instead it's best to wait at least… Read More
Once you have your *period* your mom will give you a pad or tampon. She will tell you all about the period.
Is it ok to wear white shorts when you first start your period and you have a super tampon in with a pad?
You can wear whatever you want on your period, as long as the products you're using stop you from leaking there's no reason not to wear white shorts. Just make sure you're using correct absorbency, don't use super absorbency tampons if your flow isn't heavy enough to use such a high absorbency. You may want to try menstrual cups instead as these won't leak like tampons do.
Well, if you have never got it before ask a female adult for a pad or tampon. If you've had it before stick a pad or tampon in pocket just in case.
What will you do if you get your period in school and the teachers not there and you do not have a pad?
if you feel like your gonna get your period then wear a pad and if that happens run down to the office and ask if you can call your parents and they can come and give you a pad or tampon
If your period starts in school and you don't have any menstrual products then just ask your friends for pads, tampons, or cups. If your friends don't have any supplies then a teacher or school nurse will be able to help you, even if they don't have any themselves they will still be able to help you out. If worst comes to worst you can also simply use folded-up toilet paper in your underwear as… Read More
When a girl gets her period, blood comes from her vagina and she gets a bloated uterus, plus terrible cramps. When girls get their period, she must wear a tampon, or a pad. A pad is a liner that you put in your underwear. A tampon is something that a girl puts into her vagina.
It's best to start with menstrual pads as they're simpler and safer, at least until you know your flow well enough so that if you use tampons you know what absorbency is safe to use. If you want to use internal menstrual products it's a much better idea to consider menstrual cups or softcups as these are far safer than tampons, also being safer it makes them far more convenient than tampons too. If you… Read More
If you have your period: Most definitely A maxi pad should do the trick. Leaving a tampon in for 8+ hours is dangerous; TSS! If you dont have your period: Depends. If you period id due then you should wear some sort of protection. If you've never had your period ; probably nothing. If you are worried than try a panty liner. xo
you bet! you can use a pad or tampon. However, a tampon would probably be more comfortable and work better.
u need pad/tampon, panty, lots of support!
you can't but you can try wearing a thinner pad or a tampon :)
No you can't. You have to wear a tampon or not go swimming at all.
wierd.... well i mean you dont realy feel anything, if u do just ask your teacher to go to the bathroom, then get ur emergency kit if you have one then go to the bathroom, and look, and if you see blood then change in to a pad or tampon (u should use a pad first and get used to that b4 u use a tampon) then just go back to class
Not really. There are time if not using a tampon that if you cough or laugh or stand from sitting it can feel like its streaming out but you will be having a heavy period for this to happen, so in a way, like a peeing feeling but not from the area where pee comes from. If you go through this and dont want to use a pad a tampon will help in not feeling… Read More
Tampons should not be worn overnight - tampons need to be changed every 4-6 hours which you can't do while sleeping, when laying down less blood flows down into the vaginal canal so there's a risk of using too high an absorbency for your flow, and you need to alternate with pads to allow your vagina a chance to clean itself after tampon use...overnight is the most convenient time to do this. If you use… Read More
If your period comes, you can use a tampon or pad according to your preference. Continue using the ring on schedule.
What happens depends on whether you use anything instead of a tampon. You can use other internal products like menstrual cups, softcups, diaphragms, menstrual sponges, and soft tampons - all these absorb or collect blood before it leaves your body. You can use external products like menstrual pads, pantiliners, interlabial pads, and period underwear - all these absorb blood as it leaves your body so it doesn't get onto clothes. You can also use free-bleeding… Read More
It is when a girls vaginia had blood coming out of it and they need to use a tampon or a pad to soak it all up
No, spotting is not the first day of your period, it is when you have enough blood to wear a pad or tampon. I know because I asked my doctor about this.
Yes girls can play soccer with their period, although personally I would wear a tampon not a pad. Good luck!!
Wear whatever you feel most comfortable in, and of course if tampons make sure you use correct absorbency. Pads don't have to be bulky, active people may prefer to use period underwear instead of pads or cloth pads instead of disposable pads. If active internal options like menstrual cups can be better than tampons as they don't increase cramps or leak like tampons, plus can be worn with light flow.
long pants, undies under your pants so you can place your pad on your undies, NOT WHITE BOTTONS, shorts what dont open as much, not dresses wear a tampon if your going to wear a dress, NO SKIRTS,leggings
You should be able to use a "normal" tampon/pad and it be about full in 3-4 hours.
I would suggest putting on a pad or a tampon. That's what most people do...
It's about your personal preference. Pads are comfier and don't hurt in my opinion.
The only way is to use a thin pad as a backup
I personally dont think a period hurts, i think its more annoying then ever! just going to the restroom so much to change a pad or tampon is the hardest. Espically when you our out and it is out of the way, that is the worst about my period . But some girls do have feelings about there period. But mine do not hurt. It also might be because this is only my second period… Read More
I am just starting my period for the first time the second day nothing will come out on the pad but when istick a tampon in blood will come out on it why is this?
It's not unusual to have a small amount of menstrual fluid at the opening of the cervix, up at the top of the uterus, that will be obvious on a tampon, but would have taken a while to show up on your pad. It needs to make the trip down the vagina before you see it on the pad, but you'll see it on the tampon. No worries -- perfectly normal.
Just before your period you get cramps.Another thing is that if you feel something wet on your panties.You must were pads or tampons.If you don't change your pad or your tampon you get an efection.If your a 10-12 year old girl bring along pads to school.
If you have your period, the shedding of the lining is more or less continuous. If you take out a tampon, bleeding will continue, but you might not notice it on a pad until it makes its way down the vagina.
Yes. Just use a tampon. Make sure u don't use a pad
You buy a pad or tampon and use it, try to stay away from cold drinks and spicy food as they cause cramps in some people. Oh and wear a tampon if you plan to swim. Good Luck!
Yes you can. Just use a tampon. Your flow usually slows down when you're swimming. Make sure you do not wear a pad
No, there's nothing to say that a woman should wear a tampon while on her period in a hot tub. Women could wear tampons, but they could also use options like menstrual cups or softcups which are safer and don't absorb the water, menstrual cups don't leak like tampons either. In theory a woman could go in the hot tub without any menstrual products, but of course blood could get in the water - menstrual… Read More
Yes, you should go to school. Just be sure to change the pad or tampon on a regular basis.
You simply ask them: "Hey, can you give me a tampon/pad" It's that easy, it's no different to asking for a breath mint or a pen in class. Menstruation isn't some secret you've got to hide from the world, if you're female then you likely menstruate and your friends know that. There's no reason to scream it from the rooftops, but no reason to be secretive about it either.
yes because when youre on your period you dont bleed constantly it starts and stops but dont take your pad off because you will start bleeding again and it may get on you clothes
