How can a girl manage periods in school?
A girl with periods at school might find it a bit tough . But its not that difficult to take leave from school just because she is on her periods.
☆ Always have an extra sanitary napkin/ tampon no matter if its not the time of menstrual cycle .
☆ Once periods has started , use a good quality sanitary product and have tissues as well . Change pads once every 4 or 5 hours . This will prevent any leakage . Use larger pads if necessary.
☆ In case of cramps or pain , take adequate rest before leaving to school and don't lose your sleep. Try to be calm and if the pain doesn't subside , seek help .
☆ Have a sanitiser so that you can clean your hands after changing pads .
☆ Make sure you keep yourself dry after washing your vaginal area to prevent any discomfort.Use good quality tissues.
☆ If you have to be at school for longer hours, make sure you carry as many pads as you require.
Don't be afraid of menstrual cycle. Be calm and you can handle it . Moodswings are normal . But never miss school .....
